Student Loan Challenge
Support Krystal and Support Yourself!
Help Change the Country and Get $50,000 to Pay Off Your Student Loans
Krystal can’t win without your help. The reason that there are no Democrats under 30 in Congress is because young people don’t have access to the types of donors in our network who normally contribute to Congressional campaigns. Let’s change that. Let’s show that ideas count more than who you know or how much money you have. You can raise money for Krystal over the Internet with a web page we create for you or on Facebook with our cool tools.
Whoever raises the most money for Krystal by September 30, 2009 will get their student loans paid off, up to $50,000.
How do I participate in the Contest and Raise Money for Krystal?
Register for the contest and build your own fundraising page. You can also share the page with your friends. Get the word out, get the $$ flowing, change Congress and win $50,000 to pay off your loans.
We are building and launching a Facebook Fan Page for Krystal. It will be launched on August 15, 2009. Friend Krystal Ball right now! We will send you a link to the Fan Page and you can use tools that we have built, right in Facebook, to help you raise money for Krystal, change Congress and win $50,000 to pay off your loans.
Are you really going to give me $50,000 to pay off my loans if I raise the most money for Krystal by September 30, 2009? Is that Legal?
Yes, it’s legal. We are going to give you $50,000, subject to a few conditions. First, you have to have a student loan. Then you have to win the contest by raising the most money for Krystal by September 30, 2009. Also, we have to raise at least $100,000 from the promotion. If we don’t raise at least $100,000 from the promotion, we give 50% of the proceeds of the promotion to the winner for his/her loans. So if we raised $80,000 in the promotion, you’d get $40,000. There is a minimum prize of $10,000. So even if we raise $0.25 in the promotion, you’d still get at least $10,000.
What if I don’t have student loans or I owe less than $50,000? Can I still win?
Lucky you. Yes, you can still win, but the maximum cash prize is $10,000 if you don’t owe any loans (come on, with no loans, the campaign needs the money more than you). If you have $30,000 in loans, the most you could win would be $30,000, etc. The prize is up to $50,000, depending on how much we raise in the contest and how much you owe. See the rules for more details.
About Krystal Ball
Krystal Ball, 27 years old, is running for Congress as a democrat in America’s First District, VA-1. She is a CPA, NCAA Div. I swimmer, UVA Economics Graduate and owns her own educational software design company that helps students learn around the world. There has never been a woman under 30 in US Congress! There are no Democrats under 30, men or women. We must have a balance of experience and idealism in Congress, with multiple generations represented. Right now, those under 30, with their unique perspective and combination of idealism and pragmatism have no voice in Congress.
Krystal will be the voice for grandparents, parents and young people; for anyone with an interest in the next generation. She will stand up for marriage equality, for education funding, for technology based rural job growth and for protecting the environment. When everyone in Washington talks about how “future generations” are going to have to live with the environmental mess, failure of social security and huge deficits, they are talking about a generation currently not represented in Congress. We have fewer women in Congress than Afghanistan or Rwanda! Let’s change that.
