Story

Hi, I'm Samuel and this is my idea -

Meet4acoffee -A Platform for Addiction Recovery - seeking crownfunding or investment and a belief in me. Looking for a helping hand up; my story-

I was left homeless after alcohol addiction caused me to spiral out of control and almost lead to me ending my life.

Fortunately, I managed to turn my life around and I am now in the process of launching Meet4acoffee – a one-of-its kind social recovery network offering support to people suffering with addiction, all the support that I never had. Many times I wanted to reach out to people that understood me and just couldn't find out how to contact individuals or the vital services I really needed to connect with.

I  have made it my recovery to bring the very first social recovery network in the form of an app, connecting  people to each other on a  platform that not only offers support to one -another but connects them to the vital services that are all working so hard with little government  input to help people lost and desperate.

Meet4aCoffee will connect us all.

I started this from a place of homelessness on an A4 piece of paper and a borrowed pencil  with a  mind-set  to  help  myself  and  then  all  the  others. I  found  accommodation,  got  myself  sober , 54 pieces of A4 paper later  I  had  the  basis  for  worldwide  network,  then media interest and a website was built.

I have taken the power of support and transferred it to a digital format, enabling users to get instant support at the touch of a button where ever they are in the world. This is to be a free app with the view that this is a support network and must be available for people of all financial status.

Alcohol was my first love. It gave me everything I never had, from the moment I first drank, I knew I had met my best friend in life and that we would forever be there for each other, little did I know how much pain and misery was in store through this so called friendship.   Now my drive  and  passion  to launch  this  platform  has  propelled  me  to  achieve so much  since  I  got  clean.  I  am at the  final  stages  of  launching  this to  the world  with the  support  of many  people  charging  charitable rates to support  the  cause.  I  have put  everything  I  have into  this  emotionally,  physically  and  financially

£21000 is now  what  is  needed. I have worked so hard to get to this point and have now turned  to  Just Giving to launch  this  invaluable  platform  to  the  world  on  google play and in  the  apple store.  my  dreams ,  my  passion  my  legacy  complete. My  life's  work  to  tell  the  world  about  meet4acoffee!  I now NEED your  help!  just a simple  £1  is  received  with  so  much  gratitude,  even  just  having  read  this  far  and  engaged  with  me  and  my  project  means  a lot  so thank you  in  advance.   
I truly believe Meet4acoffee will be a great success and this is the beginning of a well known and worldwide social network. 

Media  interest  has  lead to articles  documenting  my  story, I  have  attached  the  links  underneath.
