Tangible Movement Mission Statement:
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that was formed to inspire, educate and provide tangible support for young adults who struggling with depression, addiction, sexual and gender identity issues and abuse.


About the co-founder Torri Shack: 
I've struggled with depression and addiction since I was 14 years old. I have attempted suicide multiple times in my life, as an adolescent and as an adult.  I have spent years battling a horrible eating disorder and gender identity issues.  At one point I was homeless living out of my car as a result of my depression and addiction. 

  These last few years I’ve worked hard to put my life back together. My career in the health and wellness field has given me purpose. It’s time for me to pay forward the gift of life that has so freely been given back to me. It’s time to expand my scope and take my efforts worldwide to end the stigma associated with mental illness. 

I’ve been sober and abstinent from my eating disorder since 2010. This is the longest period in my life that I have been clean. It is through my personal road to recovery that has led me to form Tangible Movement. 


Call to Action:
It takes just one person to make a difference. What we ask is that you donate to our cause so that we may do something tangible in changing and enhancing the lives of our youth.  


How the money will be used: 
-Outreach and education via speaking at High Schools and Colleges.
-Sponsor individuals by funding sober living arrangements.
-Fund fitness programs at sober living facilities. 
-Sponsor individuals by funding halfway houses for abuse victims.
-Host fundraising benefits quarterly.
-To cover the cost of hiring professionals in the field of mental health to do workshops for young adults struggling with gender identity and issues of sexuality. 

How soon we need the funds: 
Your contribution will be used immediately towards programs and efforts listed above. Stay connected to keep in the know of how and where we are making a difference because of you!

Why this means so much to me: 
It has taken me years to come to terms with my addictions, sexuality, depression and abuse.  I could not have come as far as I have without a lot of help.  Most of the help cost a lot of money which subsequently left me bankrupt and living out of my car.  I was homeless battling sobriety because I had spent my last dollar on the cost of treatment and professional help.  I want to pay forward what I have received over the years and potentially save lives in the process.  Please make a dontation today.  -- Torri Shack

This is a dream project for me and my business partner.  We would be so very grateful if you could find any way to donate to our cause and participate in the Tangible Movement.

I was made aware of this wonderful charity through watching Wentworth and becoming a Kate Jenkinson fan. I have now also become a Torri Shack fan and am grateful for all you do. Best wishes in the New Year!

We couldn't be more thrilled to be able to donate this money to such a beautiful cause. We wouldn't have been able to do this if it wasn't for Ray, Jesse, Shawn, Mara, Crystal, Ben, Sheena, Eric, David, Jeremy, Joss, Yuri, Nancy, Brent, Jacob, Cass, Sabrina, Cesar, Hadyn, Joshua, Andrew, Norman, Johnathon, Matthew, David & Michael. We all came together and either donated to the raffle or bought a ticket for it to be able to help Tangible Movement with their goal! We hope to bring awareness and be able to bring more money for the cause. Thank you for all you do from all of us!
