Data Fights Debt is an initiative created by a group of coders, designers, and artists, backed by the secure technology of our partners, Data Does Good, and the trusted practices of RIP Medical Debt. By using the Data Does Good plugin we allow anybody to safely and securely take back control of their data and to use it to generate cash. We then give this money to RIP Medical Debt, which buys and forgives medical debt for cents on the dollar.
