Hello, my name is Reece Verplak. I have an idea, a fantastic idea, where i live there are kids as young as 8 or even younger, wandering around the street, causing trouble with other kids, breaking into cars, causing complete chaos for anybody unlucky enough to get cross paths with them, a majority are already smoking, drinking, abusing drugs and well, being abused in other ways. first we think, how did they get there? what did they mess up so badly, that they deserve to be in these situations? the sad answer is, nothing, they did'nt contribute to this way of life at all, they watched there mum's, dad's, even other family abusing alcahol, abusing drugs, some kids leave there home just so they dont watch there parents slowly pass out from either overdose, or overly drunk. Thats where i step in, a safe place, a comforting place, and a fun place. the idea, is that they can come in, sit down, maybe have something to eat, a nice hot drink, and play games, make friends who enjoy the same kind of games. I want to have 15-20 Laptops they can game on and verse eachother in all sorts of competitive games, 2-4 consoles and TV's to play on together and just be themselves, of course there will be a no tolerence to smoking inside, no alcahol, no sorts of drugs whatsoever. here they can catch up on work they need help with, use the computers to find jobs(if over 16) and one of the most important things, socialise. Mainly for anybody between 8 up to 25. I hope to get some of the local youth groups involved. And most importantly, i need YOU, even if you dont have much, anything is fine, every cent counts!
