About Get Marty
When you need help with a problem and it seems like you can't get anyone to listen, it might be time to Get Marty. "Marty" is Sparkt's founder Marty Griffin, Sparkt's, who has built his career on helping people get action.
In our Get Marty section, you'll find some of our success stories. Like the elderly woman whose water was shut off because she couldn't afford to repair a pipe that was leaking onto a public sidewalk. Marty found a plumber who fixed it for free and the city turned her water back on. Or the mom whose family's benefits were cut off right before Christmas when the government mistakenly declared her dead. Thanks to Marty, the bureaucrats who wouldn't return the woman's phone calls were suddenly anxious to fix the paperwork snafu. The family who lived without electricity for a year and had it turned back on after Marty got involved. And you can follow the year-long story of Marty's effort to bring the whole community together to renovate the home of a Ground Zero volunteer and his wife after he was diagnosed with mesothelioma from his work after 9/11.
Join us in celebrating the victories in these stories, and if you need to Get Marty to help you solve a problem, find out how.
