Connecting hurting people
with hopeful results
in the digital age

Mission

Thousands of people are Googling hopeless phrases like “how to kill yourself”, “how to get a divorce”, “how to find a drug dealer”, or “how to rape” each month. What is Google saying?

The results that come up are staggering: “7 painless ways to kill yourself”, “How to find a drug dealer when you’re new in town”, ‘instructional’ YouTube videos. In their search, hurting people are met with hopeless results

We need to enter the conversation. By building websites with truthful, helpful, and hopeful content, we strive to give people another option.

The purchasing of sex is destroying the lives of people all over the world. This project helps people discover the truth about buying sex, providing the resources needed to overcome sexual addiction. Launched out of a hackathon in Vancouver, Canada, this project has been externally funded to increase it’s reach and effectiveness.

This web presence lays out the consequences of sexual addiction, the resources that can help, and most off all, hope for recovery and healing.

 

Howtokillyourself.org

It started with a number: 6,000. The number of times the phrase “how to kill yourself” is Googled every month in Canada. One of the top results is “7 painless ways to kill yourself.” When that reality was shared at a FaithTech Hackathon, a team of people with a desire to change that came together to do something. That weekend they worked to create a live website linked to helpful resources.

Within months of the website’s release, one of the team members discovered that, during a time of darkness, a friend had been searching for “how to kill yourself”. Through her search, this friend came to HowToKillYourself.org, with the message of “You’re not alone.” The hope she found helped her get through the night.

More recently with the challenges of this difficult season clearly in sight, hits on this website have peaked at over 18,000 per month. The digital world needs messages of hope more than ever.
