Weʼre raising £550 to continue to provide our free Services as we receive no Public or Private Sector Funding. Over-Count relies on Donations alone. Do help us !!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Over-Count is a small, non-profitmaking Drugs Information & Advice Agency, founded in 1993, that specialises only in the Abuse and Addiction to any non-prescription, over-the-counter Drug or Medicine. (Mainly to Painkiller Addiction). We have helped over 80,000 people since 1993. We do not receive any Public or Private Sector Funding or Grant Aid, as we 'discriminate' against other forms of Drug Abuse!
Our Services are provided free of charge, but unfortunately in the last year, Donations have dried up, and we have only received under £230 since January 2017, but our expenditure has been over £750. Our Bank is now pressurising us to reduce our current Overdraft by at least £500, else we could find ourselves unable to continue operations.
We estimate we have saved at least 40 lives, this year alone. Please consider helping us to continue helping others.
Every Penny Donated is used exclusively for the benefit of our new and current Clients- NOTHING gets deducted for salaries, adminstrations, expenses, etc.
Please, your Donation has the real power to save someone's life who is addicted to Painkillers. Thank you.

About the fundraiser
Dumfries, United Kingdom
I'm the Project Director of Over-Count- a former Registered Psychiatric Nurse, and a student who studied Health & Social Studies at Glasgow University. I'm paying back Society for the 17 years I spent addicted to a Codeine & Ephedrine based over-the-counter Cough Mixture.
