ShopLicensePlates Teams With RIP Medical Debt

We are pleased to announce that we have teamed with the non-profit RIP Medical Debt.  We are donating 15 percent of our total sales  - so all license plates sold from now through Midnight on April 15, 2020 - to RIP Medical Debt.  They will use this donation to purchase past due medical debts from across America.  Let me describe it a bit more.

We are switching gears.  Now it is time to be proactive. The virus reminded me of the overwhelming medical debt that folks end up getting stuck with nowadays.  Even if you think you have healthcare coverage, sometimes you don't!


Many of you will recognize RIP Medical Debt from numerous news stories, like:
