March 10, 2011 - PRLog -- A twenty-two-year-old student Matiss Bartulis from Latvia has created a website and has come up with a plan how to save his country. The aim of the campaign “Save Latvia” is to raise money for sovereign debt repayment that consists of a loan of 1.68 billion Euros (approximately 2.31 billion dollars) from the International Monetary Fund.

Matiss Bartulis does not represent any political power, and does not have a position in a governmental institution or organization: “I am a neutral individual, who is ready to do what others have not dared to,” says Bartulis.

“I haven’t had free time since I launched my project,” reveals M.Bartulis. “People are interested in my campaign and its possible results.”

Although, M. Bartulis - the creator of the non-profit organization Save Latvia has informed the media only in his country about the project, 320 contributors from 17 different countries have donated more than 1700 Euros in seven day period. The campaign will continue until December 2013 and various activities are planned within its duration.

As a gratitude for the donation, M. Bartulis offers to include a link to the donator’s website under the donator’s name. ”My goal is to maintain as a historical value for as long as possible, and all the donators who decided not to stay anonymous will be listed in the “Contributors” section,” says the author of the project.

If more than a million Euros is donated, the author of the idea, on behalf of all the contributors, plans to turn to the government with specific tasks that have to be carried out in Latvia. In the case if the government refuses the agreement or the amount of donations is not big enough, the funds will not go to the Treasury; instead Save Latvia will collaborate with various organizations and direct the funds where they can bring maximum benefit according to their amount. The usage of the donations will be decided by voting. In the end of the campaign voting forms will be placed in the website.

# # # was created by a politically independent young man from Latvia, with the goal to attract donations from the whole world, to help his country deal with the International Monetary Fund’s debt commitments and reach an agreement with the government to exchange the collected donations for certain things that must be done in the country.
