O’Keefe is a big deal in this small town in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Once home to millionaire cotton farmers, Clarksdale is, like the rest of the Delta, about 80% African American. Its population of about 16,000 to 18,000 people, has been declining for decades.

Kate Stillwell, founder and CEO of Jumpstart, is by background a civil engineer who has spent much of her career figuring out how to reduce damage and injury resulting from earthquakes. Along the way, she observed that communities that lack a genuine sense of community are more vulnerable to a slow or missing recovery than those that do.

She has created a new insurance program, available only in California, that triggers a $10,000 payout whenever an earthquake of a minimum impact is recorded. This puts money in the hands of the insured more quickly and enables them to start the recovery process more quickly.

Founded in 2014 with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Comic Relief USA, echoing the work of its UK partner, hosts Red Nose Day each year on the last Thursday of May (this year, May 23) as a fun kick-off to summer.
