Just when you thought 2020 and 2021 were bad enough… in comes 2022!
We don’t want to remind you of all the bad stuff but we can’t ignore the effect COVID has had, followed by renewed tensions in Europe, and a cost of living crisis. Things are really tough for us all at the moment.
CALMzone is seeing an unprecedented rise in calls to the helpline.
We’re not ones to hide – the last year has affected our well-being (personal & business) too. We have seen our expenditures rise and incomes fall, from the start of the year, which has had a huge impact on our donations too.
Regardless, we set out on this journey knowing that it wasn’t always going to be easy. Right now, we’re focusing on surviving and pushing out the other side stronger.
As we did for April 2020-2021 we wanted to take a couple of minutes of your time, and share the milestones from this year.
It is also our opportunity to say thank you for all of your support – this is what you have helped us to achieve!
Cue the infographic!
A Year of Hard Work
The last year has been one thing to another.
Thanks to your continued support – telling your friends – coming back to us month on month and sending us supportive messages. Thanks to you our business survived the hardest months we’ve had since we began.
As you can see in the figures above, your support has enabled us to donate £10,333.87 between April 2021 April 2022. CALM estimates that each potentially life saving phone call costs £8: this means that our donations have helped answer 1291 calls this year. That’s 107 calls per month, and over 3 calls per day (on average).
You’re the reason why this is happening! So thank you!!
The impact that the pandemic and lockdowns has had on the mental health of the globe is yet to be seen. Then the added pressures of war close to home and harsher living conditions is making things very difficult to cope.
There seems to be no rest.
We’d like to take the opportunity to let you know that there is support there if you need it. We donate to CALMzone simply because they offer a free helpline to anybody; whether you’re worrying about money, stressing about your future or you’re struggling to manage… even if you’re worried about somebody else! CALM is your first port of call.
For us, we are continuing to work on growing our business to keep the money flowing where it needs to be.
We have a few exciting projects ahead!
