ALS Knights

ALS Knights is an organization built around helping the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) community spread awareness about the disease. Ultimately, by supporting ALS patients, families and friends emotionally, and funding a strong movement to find a cure. ALS Knights was founded by a dear friend of VerMints, Kevin Gosnell.

We are so inspired by Kevin Gosnell’s positive attitude, perseverance and compassion while enduring ALS. And because we stand with Kevin Gosnell and the ALS Knight organization, we have made tins specifically as a gift to all members who are willing to be part of the fight. Become an ALS KNIGHT, and join of this incredible movement until a cure is found for this horrible disease. 

Every year, in honor of our dear friend Kevin, VerMints will dedicate a percentage of sales to the ALS Knight organization.

WHAT WILL MATTER by Michael Josephson

Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.

It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.

Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought but what you built, not what you got but what you gave. What will matter is not your success but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone. What will matter is not your memories but the memories of those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters.
