Welcome to My Page

Robert Newman

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am raising funds and awareness for Shatterproof, a national nonprofit organization committed to protecting our loved ones from addiction to prescription and illicit drugs and alcohol and ending the stigma and suffering of those affected by this disease.Shatterproof is changing the conversation about addiction. Your support helps expand their efforts to support prevention, treatment, rescue and recovery of addiction.
Here's my story-sad but true-my life was shaterred and all was lost when we lost our son in January. Then by some strange coincidence several months afterwards, I was introduced to Shatterproof through a friend of a friend. I called the man on an unrelated issue and after we finished our business we started talking. It was like getting a help line. The strangest part was when I called him he was driving on I-84 right near my home which abuts the highway. These new friends, Rob and Joyce Roth are active members of Shatterproof-participating in fundraisers like when Joyce rapelled down a building in Hartford to raise money for the cause. They explained how Shatterproof helps people who are in our position and are feeling so alone and also raises awareness of how tragedy is so prevelant to so many. As a result I am sponsoring a golf tournament on Sunday September 24th at Southington Country Club. If you can't make that but would like to help, here's your chance.

Please support my fundraiser by making whatever donation you can share to Shatterproof today. None is too small-every little bit helps. Together, we are stronger than addiction. We Are Shatterproof!

Shatterproof is a great non-profit charitable organization that is dedicated to ending the devistation that addiction causes families. I know first-hand of this devistation to my extended family and I know I am contributing to a worthy cause!
