A church in Washington state has raised over $300-thousand to wipe out medical debt for people in six states in the Northwest. Members of Valley Real Life donated and the church teamed up with RIP Medical Debt, a nonprofit that buys up and forgives medical debt. For each dollar donated, they’ll pay off $100 in medical debt, which means the church will now be able to pay off about $30-million with their help. Source: Fox News
