ShopLicensePlates Teams With RIP Medical Debt
We are pleased to announce that we have teamed with the non-profit RIP Medical Debt. We are donating 15 percent of our total sales - so all license plates sold from now through Midnight on April 15, 2020 - to RIP Medical Debt. They will use this donation to purchase past due medical debts from across America. Let me describe it a bit more.
Like most, I have felt overwhelmed by the situation the coronavirus has created. It shows us how totally broken our healthcare "system" is here in the U.S. I have been asking myself "what can we do to help"?
We are switching gears. Now it is time to be proactive. The virus reminded me of the overwhelming medical debt that folks end up getting stuck with nowadays. Even if you think you have healthcare coverage, sometimes you don't!
Many of you will recognize RIP Medical Debt from numerous news stories, like:
PBS News Hour 12/19/19
USA Today 5/31/19
RIP Medical Debt was founded in 2014. Since then, over $1 BILLION in medical debt has been eliminated for the most impoverished; and over 1 million families have been helped.

Earth Day 2018 - Confluence Academy Campus Renewal
Confluence Academy’s South City location serves students from grades 3 through 8. Directly behind the Academy is Providence Place, a street with 7 homes that adjoins the back side of the entire length of the building. The entire block along Providence Place had a "double row" of sidewalks that were old and cracked.
There was also an original old 35 foot long driveway that had settled over the years. Patches from years ago had worn and also needed repair or replacement. In the “old days”, the drive was used to access a grease dumpster which was located there. Pumps in the kitchen of the School would send the old grease through a series of pipes which dumped into this container.
Rather than replace the sidewalks that were cracked, and to replace or re-patch the old driveway, a “green solution” was called for. One row of the "double row" of sidewalks was removed entirely. Sidewalk areas that were in need of replacement were replaced. The old driveway was removed entirely and the curb was replaced.
Collaborators include: Confluence Academy South City Campus, the building occupant; St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, the owner of the property; Residents on Providence Place; St. Louis City Alderwoman Cara Spencer; and Holloran Contracting who did the sidewalk removal and replacement.
The project included: removal of 325 feet of concrete sidewalk and driveway, which is an entire City block; placement of 20,000 lbs of topsoil; replacement of 35 feet of sidewalk area and curb where the driveway used to be; and 2 truckloads of mulch. 20 trees will be planted in Spring 2018, which will create a “boulevard” or “canopy” of trees for those walking on the sidewalk. The City of St. Louis has this included as a featured project for sustainability, and the Confluence Academy has done an article about it as well. The latest update on this initiative is here.
Terry Hammer, the owner of St. Louis-based ShopLicensePlates.com, provided the funding for this project and will handle the ongoing maintenance and planting that will be needed.
