Seeking Human Kind - Suicide Prevention

Donation protected
My name is Andy Howard. I am a 28-year-old Irish man undertaking a project to raise funds and awareness for the prevention of suicide.

Suicide and mental health is a topic that I feel strongly about. I want to do something not only to raise money for this cause, but to show people that life is worth living and to help inspire others.

I aim to raise £100,000 which will be divided between charities across Ireland, UK and Australia. Donating to Samaritans Ireland, Samaritans UK and Beyond Blue in Australia.

Seeking Human Kind is the name of my journey, which will involve me trekking from the UK to Australia, relying solely on human kindness. I intend to travel without money, depending on interacting with people alone to support my fundraising mission by providing me with food and shelter. I want to show that even when the odds are stacked against you, you can find a way through, showing my faith in humankind.

I will raise funds for charity by documenting my journey through social media channels and intend to start my journey in January with 10,000 followers. I will ask followers to subscribe and make voluntary donations, split equally to the charities I will be supporting.

My inspiration for this project is my belief that people are fundamentally kind and generous. With so much uncertainty and fear in the world today, on the news and on social media, I want this to be a project of hope, shining a light on the true nature of people and demonstrating that human kindness is still alive in communities across the world.

Through the power of social media, I aim to gain even more followers as I make my way to Australia, raising more awareness and funds around suicide prevention and showing you can use social media for good.
