The Power of Persistence: Abigail Rutlege’s Journey to Winning $2,500 with Givling

To her excitement, Abigail Rutlege, a physical therapist from Chico, CA, was recently awarded $2,500 by playing Givling, the free crowdfunding app. 

Abigail’s journey with Givling started 7 years ago, when she was working at her first post-graduate job and like millions of Americans, looking for ways to help with student loan debt. She saw Givling as a helpful distraction and soon got hooked on the game. Over the years, Abigail has continued to play, and her dedication paid off — she is now a winner of $2,500!

When asked about how the award will help her, Abigail shared that the money will go directly towards paying off her student loans, which have been hanging over her and her husband’s heads for years. She expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to make a bigger dent in her debt.

Abigail found out about her award while waiting for a doctor’s appointment. She was bored in the waiting room and decided to check her email. To her surprise, she saw a note from Seth at Givling, informing her that she had won $2,500. While she didn’t express too much outward excitement in the waiting room, she shared she was ecstatic on the inside.

For Abigail, Givling has been a way to feel connected to others who are also burdened with student loan debt. She appreciates the opportunity to help others and be a part of a community that understands her situation.

To other Givling players, Abigail’s advice is to be patient and fill out all the free sponsors. She acknowledges that it can be frustrating to not see the numbers move but promises that they will if you give it enough time.

Aside from her work as a therapist and her interest in Givling, Abigail enjoys cooking, binge-watching nostalgic shows, and trying new restaurants. She also recently completed her hours to be fully licensed as a therapist, a major accomplishment for her.

Overall, Abigail’s story is a testament to the power of perseverance and community support. 

With the help of Givling and others, she is working towards financial freedom and achieving her goals. Congratulations, Abigail, on your well-deserved award!
