Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey is an American actor, known mostly for his comedic roles, but he isn't just a celebrity. He was born in Uvalde, Texas on November 4 of 1969 and today has a large impact on high school students. After the passing of his father, Matthew followed one of his father's mantras; "just keep livin" or "j.k. livin". He soon realized that it helped him during rough times and when he established his foundation "just keep livin" was a natural fit. In remembrance of his father, "Pop" is featured on the logo. Now he is C.E.O of J.K Livin and his wife is co-founder of the J.K Livin Foundation.

The Mission of the Just Keep Livin Foundation

"The just keep livin Foundation is dedicated to empowering high school students to lead active lives and make healthy choices. 'to prevent so we don't
have to cure later in life'".

What They Do

In public schools health and wellness programs are introduced to those of whom may not have had the opportunity to learn about the body before. Students learn about nutrition and fitness while serving their community. This encompasses Matthew McConaughey's own belief that you should, "give thanks… Appreciate what you DO have…The more we give thanks, the more we receive to be thankful for… GRATITUDE is the gift that always gives back."

On December 6, 2014 the Just Keep Livn Foundation set up a fundraising campaign with Crowdrise for a chance to meet Matthew McConaughey, with all of the proceeds going to the students.
