FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rob Shoesmith, (OTCBB:MEDL) –30-year old Social Media Marketer for award-winning leader of mobile technology, MEDL Mobile – announced his latest experiment. He will give his house away to a homeless charity when he gets 1 million downloads of his debut book, "Bin There Done That" on Apple iBooks and Amazon Kindle.
"Bin There Done That" is an account of how Rob transformed his life after hitting rock bottom and used MEDL Mobile's App Incubator to submit his idea for an app. The book highlights his iPhone Experiment in which he camped for 10 nights outside an Apple Store in Central London for the release of the iPhone 4s. Throughout his experience Rob unexpectedly connected with dozens of homeless people in London, inspiring and motivating him to turn his experience into a book to share with everyone.
For his second experiment, Rob has made a generous pledge of giving away his house to a homeless charity with an inspiring goal to help raise awareness of depression, anxiety and the homeless. He has confirmed that if the 1 million-download target is met, his home will be sold at market value - 100% of this value will be donated to a homeless charity.
"'Bin There Done That' talks about how I used the world of iPhone apps to turn my life around and hopefully inspire people to follow their dreams," said Rob Shoesmith, Social Media Marketer for MEDL Mobile. "Anything really is possible if you try hard enough!"
Rob's book has been top ten in the UK iBooks Store for Biographies - he has reiterated that he will be making charitable donations along the way to his target. Follow Rob Shoesmith's experiment and journey on his blog: www.robshoesmith.com
