Dave Ramsey’s Company Pays Off $10 Million In Debt For 8,000 People To ‘Show The Love Of Jesus’

The company founded by Christian financial expert Dave Ramsey paid off $10 million’s worth of debt owed by 8,000 individuals this Christmas season in order to “show the love of Christ” to those in financial trouble.

Ramsey’s company, Ramsey Solutions, purchased $10 million in medical and automobile debt from two private debt collection companies simply “in order to forgive it,” Ramsey Solutions said in a press release.

“This year has been one of the hardest years for some of you. People have struggled financially in ways they never had before,” Ramsey said in the video. “And that’s why we wanted to take this opportunity to show the love of Jesus, by taking on the debt of 8,000 people across the country.”

Ramsey Solutions, founded in 1992, provides biblical-based financial education and is best known for its Financial Peace University classes. Ramsey also hosts a radio show, The Dave Ramsey Show. For more information, visit www.DaveRamsey.com.
