"It’s impossible” is a phrase that’s thrown around too often and easily. At least that’s what you’ll think when you see some of the amazing work achieved by the suitably named, non-profit foundation Not Impossible Labs.
Established by Mick Ebling, philanthropist, entrepreneur and founder of creative and production agency The Ebling Group (TEG), the Not Impossible Labs’ growing community of collaborators solve what are deemed ‘impossible’ healthcare issues. They “crowd-source to crowd-solve” with volunteers donating their time, skills and money.
Here’s a mind-blowing trio of projects they have created to date.
Legendary LA graffiti artist TEMPT suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease, a degenerative neuromuscular disease that has paralysed him head to toe. Only able to communicate through blinking, the Not Impossible Foundation created the Eyewriter, which allowed him to create art once again.
The loss of limbs is sadly commonplace in war torn Sudan. A 14-year-old Sudanese teen by the name of Daniel is one of them, a bomb blowing off both his arms. Not Impossible Labs created a 3D-printing prosthetic lab and training facility to help combat the problem – including the creation of prosthetic arm for Daniel.
After hearing about Not Impossible Labs on the radio, Lorraine Moirs contacted them (people can submit requests for causes) in the hope they could help her husband Don speak again. Rendered speechless by Lou Gehrig’s disease, a digital solution created by Not Impossible saw him to talk to his wife for the first time in over a decade.
Not Impossible Labs prove that through collaboration and passion for a cause life-changing results can be achieved.
