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.
A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who helped us raise the first £5000 to apply for charity status. Our application was submitted on Saturday 26th May 2018 - the fourth anniversary of the day I lost my twin brother Rob Hill. This charity and the work it will do is dedicated to Rob. And my life's mission now is to help people beat addiction and get back their lives and to prevent families suffering the terrible tragedy we did.
The focus of the work is addiction recovery, but we what I teach also helps people with anxiety, stress and depression.
I've successfully helped people with fear-based conditions such as agoraphobia and claustrophobia. I've also started working with people who have eating disorders such as over-eating and bulimia; looking at the contribution sugar addiction makes to these conditions and successfully reversing them.
The Rob Hill Foundation will provide addiction recovery services to people most in need. I have run a free weekly drop-in addiction workshop and support group in Sidcup since April 2016, and given people my one-to-one support most of the time without charge. I have printed and distributed 2000 copies of my 7 Day Beat Addiction booklet free of charge. All the work has been funded by me so far ... however, in order to expand and be able to continue to offer some services for free or on a not for profit basis to those really in need, people on low incomes and benefits, homeless people and the young and vulnerable ... I have set up this charity to support the work.
The model of recovery I teach has helped hundreds of people get their lives back, free from addiction. But I need to reach many more and this funding will allow me to do that.
The plan is to expand the Sidcup / Bexley workshop to accommodate the growing number of people who have started coming. And then reach out with workshops in other areas.
Individuals who show a real desire to beat their addiction will get one-to-one support from me as well as a subsidised place on one of my intensive programmes or retreats.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO!
I want to run an awareness campaign on the dangers of smoking weed. Weed is a massive issue for youngsters as it is considered a safer option. Nothing could be further from the truth. Children and young people in particular need to understand what they're risking and what the true symptoms are to help them make an informed decision when tempted to try anything out to look 'cool'. Prevention is better than cure. School children as young as 10 have received my anti drugs sessions well - therefore there is hope that the message can sink in early.
There is so much to do and so few of us doing it at the moment. I would love to be able to expand my team in order to help more people and in different ways.
I need your support to do this. Please give what you can. It doesn't matter how much - it is all going to be well used to support people to escape addiction. And please share this as much as you can to friends and family.
