The Guy Who Gave £5000
Dean, a local small business owner from Hinkley, heard about the Flourish Project from Hannah and felt that he wanted to give £5000 to the project. Here is his story!
THE FLOURISH PROJECT IS HERE TO HELP PEOPLE AND EDUCATE PEOPLE AND I LOVE THE VISION BEHIND IT!
I know I can’t solve all the problems in the world, with just me on my own, that’s why I think it would be nice to get people on board to donate money or ideas, or support and help the charity increase it’s an influence within the local area and reaches more children and young people.
I really do believe that the Flourish Project has got so much potential to expand into something that will make a big impact on peoples lives, so I’m putting forward £5000 of my own money to this charity directly to help them develop Flourish online so that it can be used in schools to help develop children’s mental and emotional health and to help them succeed in life.
I’m telling it how it is…
I JUST WANT TO SEE PEOPLE REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL AND BE HAPPY. THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD GOING ON IN THE WORLD BUT THERE IS ALSO A LOT OF BAD, HOWEVER WHEN YOU DIG DEEP DOWN A LOT OF IT COMES BACK TO MENTAL HEALTH.
WHY DO YOU THINK THE WORK THAT FLOURISH DOES IS IMPORTANT?
I BELIEVE THAT TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE, WE NEED LOVE, CONNECTION AND BELONGING AND I KNOW THAT THROUGH THIS PROJECT, CHILDREN WILL FEEL LOVED, VALUED, CONNECTED AND BELONG.
From my own personal experiences, I have had to work a lot on my own mindset and my own mental and emotional wellbeing. I am not going to lie, at times it can be a very ‘lonely’ and ‘isolating’ place, I now realise that a lot of my mental health problems stemmed from my own childhood. So, I really do understand the important work that the project does by giving children preventative tools now, in order for them to become happy and successful adults knowing their value and worth. I absolutely believe that the more awareness we bring in the area of mental health – the better we will become as a society.
A great quote from Dean:
PEOPLE GO TO THE GYM TO WORK OUT AND TO STAY PHYSICALLY HEALTHY, BUT WE OFTEN NEGLECT KEEPING OUR MINDS HEALTHY.
