    Story

    My name is Steve Shaw and I need your help to educate teenagers, and younger people to raise awareness about drugs and addiction. Lately I have seen many young people involved with drugs, who are destroying their lives without even knowing it. Some of these young people are my friends children which is why I have decided to help. I am building a foundation called Dying for Drugs I need help to fund a website for the first year which will then keep raising funds to help educate and hopefully save lives of young people. A two hour professional presentation including a video will be made of people telling their own stories about their past addiction warning teens about drugs that will be shown in schools, collages, and youth clubs and on the website, money raised here will go towards making a film about the dangers of taking drugs and what can happen, Audio/video equipment for the presentation and a van so we can travel around the U.K. to show the presentation the rest will be spent on products to make information booklets to be given to students. Our government has cut funding for many things including the education of drugs which is not on the curriculum and as adults we know that prevention is better than cure. All money raised from the website will help continue to fund the u.k. tour of schools plus help various charity's around the U.K. who provide professional help for people aged between 10 and 19 years old. For many youngsters it is already too late we must act now to try to educate as many teens as we can so they are fully aware of the dangers and risks they are taking ,I know from personal experience the impact of drug taking has on young people and their family's, my project will not only help young people but will in the end save the N.H.S. and the tax payer thousands of pounds. We must get this message across. DRUGS IS NOT THE ANSWER DRUGS WONT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS DRUGS WILL KILL YOU. Please donate what you can and help to keep teens safe. Thank you.

      Dying for drugs project will not only help thousands of teenagers and young people but if we can reduce the amount of teens using or trying drugs or help those already taking drugs to stop then we will also reduce the amount of emergency hospital admissions saving the NHS and the TAX PAYER hundreds of thousands of pounds each year.

      Every penny donated could help save a person you love from a drug induced death. Most of which are accidental because people do not know enough about the harm drugs do even in the smallest doses.
