    You will want to sign in to "Amazon Smile." 

    Then, search "RIP Medical Debt." 

    Finally, you shop. You will find the same prices, but a portion of your purchase will go toward this charity. Amazon will donate half a percent of your purchase to RIP Medical Debt. 

    Action 9 is working with RIP to wipe away $1 million worth of medical debt in the Charlotte area. 

    If you receive a yellow envelope in the mail, this means some of your doctor bills are going to be erased. 

    Action 9 is not picking patients and we do not know who you are, but if you receive a yellow envelope, do not throw it away. It is not a scam! 

    Please contact us - we would love to hear the good news!
