As you may know, the Hector’s House team spend a lot of time out and about spreading our positive mental health awareness messages and promoting a healthier way of living – known as Eat Move Love. However, due to the charity having limited resources, we are unable to have the impact needed. So, we are crowdfunding for a new Tour Bus!
What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is a way to ‘pledge’ a donation amount of your choice to a project, usually within a deadline. This money will only be used on the Tour Bus – and we are really grateful for every single penny donated so far.
3 reasons we need a Tour Bus
- We attend a number of events and school talks in the area without any way of carrying equipment, resources or branding – which can have an impact on the quality of talks we give and how effective these can be.
- We are currently unable to reach a vast amount of people outside of the immediate area because of this lack of resource.
- Most importantly, if a student or member of the public come to us after a talk with serious issues – such as suicidal thoughts – we currently do not have a safe space to bring them to in order to help them further. Having this bus will mean that we can create a safe, inviting and calming atmosphere where we can bring a vulnerable person in to talk things through – in total privacy. This could literally save lives.
Our aim at Hector’s House is to stop these preventable deaths through education, awareness and support – and this Tour Bus will be an invaluable tool for us to achieve our goals.
Please consider giving what you can today to our crowdfunding appeal – it really means the world to us and people out there who are struggling.
We can’t thank you enough! And we certainly couldn’t do it without you.
All our love,
The Hector’s House team.
