We need YOUR help. Our mission is made solely possible through donations from supporters who share our passion for Kratom. The more supporters, the larger our movement and the louder our voices! Show you stand with Kratom through a donation, even if you wish to remain anonymous.
Donations cover operating costs, management of state-specific programs, public relations, education, outreach and advocacy work, volunteer training and organizing, travel to states facing potential legislative action and much more. As we grow, we even plan to raise money toward research initiative and studies.
Soon we'll be announcing specific supporter levels with special bonuses and incentives (like t-shirts, mugs, Kratom guides, newsletters, etc).
The AKA is incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of Colorado and are awaiting our final paperwork on our 501(c)(4) status from the IRS.
Jessica Geary commented on Take Action 2016-09-03 16:31:21 -0400I am a 36 year old mother of two.I came upon kratom while I was at a very low point in my life.I have struggled since my teenage years with a panic disorder, severe migraines, hidradenitis suppurativa, and later on the onset of D.D.D. spinal stenosis, carpel tunnel ,and now Fibromyalgia..I have taken so many different medications over the years ,and also went years with a bad case of agoraphobia that I was too ashamed of how I looked (because of scarring from the H.S.) and would rarely even leave my home. i have tried different Doctors, medications, and even tons of different “natural means” to try to address my medical conditions through the years..After no change in my health after all of that with surgerys, many days of horrible pain and hopelessness and then being treated like I was a drug seeker at one E.R. visit..I felt like giving up on life..I have two children am a single mother with next to no support of family ,or friends and spent a lot of time recovering from huge boils or laid up with severe migraines and on top of that my spine issues which caused chronic pain..I decided to research natural ways of trying to help myself and ran across Kratom I scoured the internet and did my research for months before trying and joined a group for sufferers of chronic pain just like me…it took about a week of experimenting with strains and doses to to get good relief of the pain but once I did..I started to also notice other benefits of the tea..my anxiety was lessened,I could think clearer, I was sleeping better had had the energy to play with my children !!! This has been the only thing that has been able to help me to this magnitude in all these years .I am devastated that it is going to be banned and fear a life of severe pain and anxiety and feeling “normal”.My kids deserve to have a mom who is healthier and happy again.Please dont ban this plant so many peoples lives have improved because of it!!
