Drowning in $20,000 of credit card debt, shopaholic Karyn Bosnak asked strangers for money online- and it worked!
For Karyn Bosnak, after growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, living the 'good life' in New York City was a dream come true. A big-shot producer on a 'Judge Judy'-style talk show, Karyn had the six-figure income and developed a liking for the finer things in life, such as Prada blouses, oriental rugs and $400 sandals. Each time she would pull out her credit card, Karyn could justify any expense. Then she hit rock bottom and found herself jobless, and $20,000 in debt. So what does a cash-strapped girl do?
Karyn started a website www.savekaryn.com on which she asked for donations to help her pay off her shopping debts. Karyn started to receive emails from all over the world, either confessing to their own debt-ridden lives, or criticising Karyn's. But after only four months of internet pan-handling (and around 2 million hits on her website), a change in lifestyle and selling more than a few of her precious possessions on eBay, her debt was gone!
SAVE KARYN is the hilarious true story of a gal with big-city aspirations, but an empty wallet. In her hilarious cautionary tale, Karyn Bosnak's chronicle of her glamorous rise, her embarrassing fall and her determination to crawl out from under her debt will win you over, make you laugh out loud, renew your faith in the kindness of strangers and make you wonder, 'Hey, why didn't I think of that?'
