Some of you will have read about YES 2014. Its a part of what I do and I give my time for six months to hopefully make a difference to 12 young peoples lives. I can’t do it regularly because its all consuming and I do not want tomake business out of it. The cost for 12 children to go is around £40,000 and I am reaching out to anyone who might be able help. Very soon we will have a giving page but in the mean time I am looking for one or two people who might like to underwrite this in its entirety. I meet many people who could afford this but the key to wanting to help is, if you feel a connection to helping? Basically the youth today are the future and will be here long after we are gone.. They will be making decisions that will correct a lot of what we have done wrong in our time. This is why its close to me. Please read the info on our FB page, share it or send to someone who might help. If you want more information please private message me.

Youth Expedition 2014

leave a comment »

OX1A9491-1We have now set up the third YES expedition which will take place in 2014. Its been on the boil for a couple of years now and because of the success of the first two, I have been keen to run another.

There is a difference this time in that we are not solely working with bereaved youths or charities. We are now reaching out to any young person who might have a history or that has experienced a disruptive development or teenage years, no matter what. There are so many young people today affected by environment, parents, divorce, food, drugs, gangs, you name it, its out there. We live in a world that throws so much crap at us from an early age and then tries to make us feel better with a few gadgets and toys.. YES is a whole lot more that. It offers its participants the chance to get away from the environment they are currently in. It throws some huge challenges along the way and most importantly the desert does its “stuff” and gives us all a chance to reset. A little like re formatting your hard drive, re installing the operating software and then getting on with work.. Only YES is in a life sense.OX1A9242
