FREE BOX OF DISTRACTIONS TO PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

We have been running for over 3 years now and have helped over 2000 people in the UK.

We provide a free box of distractions to people who have mental health issues as a way of distracting someone from unwanted thoughts and impulses. We have helped people from all ages and with a lot of abilities. We often help people with Autism, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, BPD, Learning difficulties and Dementia.

We have had a lot of positive feedback on our boxes and we strive to make them better. This year we have made our boxes more neutral and discreet. They used to be bright gold boxes with our name on them. Now we have white boxes with our new neutral logo that doesn't state our name for the privacy and confidentiality of the person receiving them.

in 2018 we raised nearly £2,000 LESS than the year before and we have been struggling to continue to keep running. The boxes are in high demand and we need to ensure we have enough funds to continue our charity.
Every little helps so please donate to our cause and continue to help people in need in the UK.

Thanks
Kerry and the LBOD Team

Hi everyone
We hope you are well. We are currently sitting with a £0 balance in our bank account. This is the first time in a long time this has happened. We need to purchase some stock and have a waiting list for our boxes.
If you could spare a few pounds please donate to help us. It would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Kerry

P.s happy world thinking day to all my Guiding friends

Hi everyone. I hope you are keeping well. Lately our box requests have been really high and our funds are starting to go down and down and we are struggling to keep running at an efficient pace.
We ask if you could spare a few pounds to help us make and send more boxes to people in need.

I hope this money can help make a few boxes. Few people over last week iv known have taken own lives... this charity should be promoted by I.e doctors psychologists support groups more. was thinking calming music. I have been listening to some great songs that i had never heard, with earphones and they have been calming my unwanted thoughts late at night. Just an idea for the box... but of you would like me to help if you decide to make a CD... or even links to the songs to make and put in box I will be happy to help.. Good luck.
