The news station worked with New York based charity RIP Medical Debt and bought $1 million worth of medical debt owed by viewers in the area for $12,000.
One thousand people will be getting letters in yellow envelopes that have a KIRO 7 sticker on them to let them know their medical debt has been forgiven.
