As we share in our book The Inner Fix, we believe that giving back and service are crucial – not only for the benefit of the world we live in – but also to help each one of us feel fulfilled.
In a culture that has become increasingly preoccupied with the gratification and success of the individual alone, this can seem like a somewhat radical perspective.
However, as we’ve learned from our own experience, a giving mentality does not prohibit our own joy, wealth and success, it enhances it.
That’s why we’re dedicated to supporting several UK-based charities that we really believe in - through donations, raising awareness, life-coaching or providing workshops for their staff and the people they serve.
If either of the charities below speak to you, we’d love you to join us in supporting their great work in any way that you can.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation
Amy and her music touched the lives of millions, and when she tragically passed away on July 23rd 2011, aged only 27, it didn’t just break the hearts of her family and close friends – it had a huge impact all over the world.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. They also aim to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
RESTART is a charity focusing on the socially excluded. They are committed to offering healthy routes back into society for the homeless, the long term unemployed and the lonely. They believe that every person who finds the courage and power to change their situation, can RESTART their lives.
They focus on education, housing, employability programmes and emergency aid. You can help them by giving your time, money or expertise.
