Our Mission Objectives
The three areas of addiction support My Recovery Day is engaged in are Recovery, Prevention and Treatment with these objectives:
1. Develop internet-based mobile apps and tools that can support addiction recovery globally (see screenshots);
2. Provide employment opportunities for individuals recovering from addiction in a safe, substance free, positive environment allowing them to continue their own recovery process without judgement. Since most activities are focused online, we call our employment opportunity the “JOBS (Just Online Being Sober) Program”.
3. Support other qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofits involved in the prevention and treatment of various addictions.
The Beginning Story
The founder, Bill Tymoszczuk, set up his personal eBay account in 1999 to sell some of my Dad’s WWII items. He enjoyed the feeling of learning something new and the excitement of getting an email that his item SOLD.
Seeing that eBay was a great vehicle to learn and make money, he begin to think about using eBay as a teaching and income platform to provide hope to men and women who have chosen the path of recovery from addictions. For an individual who has gone through a recovery program, only to realize they do not have skills or a way to support themselves and/or their family can be extremely discouraging and even threaten their recovery.
Consequently, on Oct 12, 2016 he set up an eBay user ID (My Recovery Day) and started listing and selling items for his own nonprofit, 3RTEC, Inc dba My Recovery Day. He continued to sell and build positive feedback on eBay and on May 10, 2017 was granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS.
In January, 2018 a lease was signed for the current office and warehouse space located at 4500 Lee Road. It is here that My Recovery Day has started teaching and training individuals in recovery through the JOBS Program (Just Online Being Sober). Our first JOBS program participant started on March 14, 2018 and proved that we can make a difference in the lives of individuals in recovery.
Our next goal is to set up a classroom style training facility to scale our JOBS Program.
