A few weeks ago we came up with a new word for fund raising – friend-raising!
The great thing about “friend-raising” is anyone and everyone can participate. It is not only about raising funds – it is about raising awareness and being an ambassador of EDOYR! By participating in friend-raising you could help us lessen the stigma associated with eating disorders. It could be as simple as creating a positive environment at school by discouraging conversations that focus around negative body image. Individuals and groups could organize events to help support EDOYR – yard sales, open mics, karaoke nights, book sales, or even a pet parade! Friend-raising gives volunteers a chance to use their own creative genius! Contact us with your ideas and initiatives at firstname.lastname@example.org! If you would like to become an ambassador for EDOYR or plan an event – take pictures and we will be delighted to post them on our website and Facebook page!
Hope is part of our vision, it is a vital component of the healing process. Our hope is to have an intervention-assessment center. This, in turn, will give hope to thousands who are affected by eating disorders.
Please keep us in your good thoughts!
We appreciate your support! Every dollar makes a difference!
