At 10,000 Beds, we were so astonished, grateful, and proud when we tallied up our efforts at the end of 2016 and realized the miraculous achievement of ONE MILLION DOLLARS in addiction treatment scholarships awarded during our first full year of operation.
This year – 2017 – we are filled with gratitude as we quickly approach the TWO AND A HALF MILLION DOLLAR mark for awarded addiction treatment scholarships.
We know FIVE MILLION IS A LOT, but our mission is recovery, and we have set a goal of FIVE MILLION DOLLARS in awarded addiction treatment scholarships for next year – 2018.
We have some work to do! And we need your help!
But before we talk about that, I want to talk about our EXTRAORDINARY TREATMENT PROGRAM PARTNERS that donate AT LEAST one addiction treatment scholarship to 10,000 Beds every year. Many donate several scholarships every single year, one of our partners has committed to four per month! Without these generous philanthropic partners, we would not be able to help so many without resources who are fighting addiction and seeking help.
And without YOUR support, hundreds of people seeking help will miss out on a 10,000 Beds scholarship. We can’t let that happen! They need us, these people have no one else to turn to. They’ve already burned every bridge and they finally recognize their need for help. We can’t abandon them now. We received 106 applications in September alone, we are working hard to help as many as we can!
WITH your support, we are unstoppable and no one will be abandoned.
Your donation of $25 or $50 or $100 makes a huge difference as we provide transportation to our scholarship clients. The average cost to 10,000 Beds for a 30-day scholarship valued at $25,000 is $500.
Your donation also supports our larger programs, including our nationwide outreach program #ontheroad4recovery. This program has made headlines across the country, attracted every type of media attention, and provided a much needed platform for the important messaging we share to help change perceptions of addiction and recovery. Over the past 6 months we have spoken to literally thousands of people seeking information and needing hope.
Thank you for your prayers, your positive thoughts, your efforts. We are grateful for you.
Our model of providing scholarships through our Extraordinary Treatment Program Partners is unique in the addiction treatment industry, and because of you our results have been record-breaking:
- 2016 – $1,000,000 in addiction treatment scholarships
- 2017 – $2,500,000 in addiction treatment scholarships – we are on track for this!
- 2018 – $5,000,000 in addiction treatment scholarships is our goal!
Please make a donation today and help us finish 2017 with the high standards and levels of success we are on target to reach. There are so many who need help.
PS Yes, FIVE MILLION IN AWARDED ADDICTION TREATMENT SCHOLARSHIPS IS A LOT, but with your support we are confident we will touch the lives of more and more who have no resources, want help, are seeking treatment for addiction. Thank you!
