Most Americans don’t have $500 to cover an unexpected emergency, and unexpected emergencies always cost more than $500. They can destroy you financially and crush you spiritually.
That's where Still Kickin comes in. We're a nonprofit organization founded by Nora McInerny and Lindsay Wenner that helps awesome people going through awful things. Inspired by Minneapolis designer (and all-around awesome dude) Aaron Purmort’s life, death and favorite t-shirt, we give a no-strings-attached financial grant to a new "Still Kickin Hero" each month.
Recent Heroes include:
Marissa Xicotencatl, a young woman who, after a debilitating tumor returned for a fourth time, made the difficult decision to amputate her leg.
Andi Emmett, a gun violence survivor who became the sole financial provider for her family after her stepfather attempted to kill her.
Justin Drapinski, a wheelchair hockey league superstar with a neurodegenerative disease fighting for his right to potentially life-saving medical treatment.
The money you raise will help us keep this organization of ours running and help us continue to #HelpAHumanOut.
