These links should provide some information for you, have recently started a company myself so know how hard it can be to get started. Any questions feel free to pm me, all the best finding someone to invest.

Hi Bruiser,

My plan was to stop being selfish and trying to get rich basically. Ive been working alongside the police and have witnessed for myself some of the hardship that's occuring, then it dawned on me. Domesic violence is increasing because of poverty. And not everyone likes to go to Slavation Army for help. My plan is simply to build a website (dont worry, i have a family member to do that).Next plan after I have got that up and running is to form a trust with a couple of my police friends. It is my intention to have a website that is informative and gives encouragement. The next plan is to be able to raise money through donations, food, beds, blankets and what ever anyone wants to donate. People can then come onto the site and we can distribute resources to those who desperately need it.

Not sure yet. We have a name that we really want to use but it is in use. Have to get a domain sorted so that my brother knows what to put on the website, so we are at a hurdle at the moment. Have to get this sorted by xmas as that is when domestic violence and stress is at it's worst. Where? i take it you is it in new zealand? Yes it is. To be honest, i know very little about websites so luckily my brother is taking that part on. One particular friend is organising a whip round with police pals and he has offered to pay to get the website name and the fees that go with it - if it's not too expensive of course otherwise we will have to do some fundraising first - which will hinder our plans.

This is where the smart arses get to take the piss now is it?

And no, it isnt based on gender, race, age or religion.

This will help anyone that may be pushed over the edge at some stage.

Sorry if I sounded abrupt, Im still gutted that I cant get the domain name I wanted. It's been sitting on a shelf unused and may be snapped up again because it could be sold for a profit - and I cant get this thing up and running if everyone wants to earn a pay packet out of us.
