If I’m honest, I didn’t really know what I was doing when I set up ThinkTwice. I had a passion, rooted in the pain I experienced on my darkest days and I almost felt like I had no choice. I had to do something to help, had to try and make a difference, had to try and make something out of everything I’d been through.
I was twenty – I had no idea how to run a charitable organisation – at the beginning, I didn’t even really know what I wanted ThinkTwice to achieve. I just wanted to fill a hole, get people talking, make people realise that they aren’t alone.
Three years on and we have trustees, a web following and our awareness and educational resources will be ready by Easter 2014!
I hope that over the past three years, people have caught the vision. The vision for a society, led by the Church which doesn’t say things like, ‘Real christians don’t get depression because they’re supposed to be full of the joy of the Lord’ or ‘You aren’t allowed to have an anxiety disorder because it says in the Bible not to be anxious’.
We’d really love it if you could pray for us as we enter the next phase of our work, it’s exciting but also quite terrifying (particularly for Rachael!)
Over the next year we really want to send our resources to press and we’d love it if you were able to donate a little bit to our cause! If you feel so inclined, you can donate either by writing a cheque to ThinkTwice and mailing it to
London School of Theology
Alternatively, you can drop Tom a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a bank transfer or regular standing order.
Here’s to our fourth (and hopefully best) year!
