American Kratom Assocation : fundraising goal reached
Over the last several days, I have been truly humbled by the outpouring of support and generosity by the defenders of kratom. The truth is on our side – kratom is safe, not highly addictive, and helps millions of people live a happier life.
Last week, we asked you to help us achieve our goal of raising $28,450 that would allow us to pay for a scientific push against the misinformation campaign the FDA is pushing about kratom. The opportunity to pay for this much needed work was even more exciting due to the generosity of one of our donors who agreed to match each donation $1 for $1. As promised, your $70,000 now becomes $140,000! This money will now allow us to move forward in hiring several teams that will descend on states like Wisconsin and Rhode Island, and in local communities like Jerseyville, IL where we need to make the case for repealing bans on kratom that currently exist. Your tremendous response and support will also allow us to commission Dr. Jack Henningfield to develop a set of industry standards that will further protect consumers and make the industry safer for everyone. Make no mistake…your generosity sent a clear message to the FDA that we will not sit idly by why they spread lies about kratom.
