I was going to send in a donation to the National Eating Disorders Association, but then I thought it would be cool to send in a group donation. Especially since the funds will be matched, dollar for dollar by a NEDA anonymous donor!.
If you choose to donate please post a comment here telling us why eating disorders matter to you. I am going to send to NEDA all the personal stories we collect along with our donations.
To join in the giving, click the donation widget on the upper right of the blog now! You will be directed to PayPal* to donate, no amount is too small - hey if we all chip in just 5 bucks we will rake it in for a cause that is so near and dear to our hearts.
If you are not familiar with NEDA, check out their web site.Of all the eating disorder organizations, I have the most respect for their work. They are constantly striving to improve their services, and they are fully engaged in research. Best of all, their CEO Lynn Grefe is a pistol! She is never afraid to express NEDA's stance on issues, check out her comments on stick thin fashion models,wow!
I hope you will join me in this effort. One thing I have learned about giving to charitable causes is you can't wait and say to yourself "can't afford it, I'll do it next time" – both are b.s. excuses.
The best part is about giving? It will never, ever fail to give back to you in ways you never imagined.
Trust me on this one,
*Note: On PayPal, you will see the name "McGaw Group, LLC" as the company you are donating to, this my business account. I will report back to everyone the totals we raise.
