Save Karyn by Karyn Bosnak
What would you do if you owed $20,000? Would you: a) Not tell your parents? b) Stop colouring your hair, having pedicures and buying Gucci? c) Start your own website that asks for money without apology? If you were Karyn Bosnak, you'd do all three... In New York for the first time, with the dream job and the smart flat, Karyn starts spending...and spending. But when it all goes horribly wrong, and her credit card balance mounts in a terrifying manner, Karyn knows that she has to take control. She starts her website www.savekaryn.com on which she fearlessly asks for donations to help pay off her debts. The website receives over 2 million hits and has replies from all over the world - some supportive, many abusive. But after four months, Karyn has become a new woman- debt-free, grateful and happy. This is the hilarious and touching true story of how she does it.
