Our vision:

NEDA envisions a world without eating disorders.

Our history:

NEDA was formed in 2001, when Eating Disorders Awareness & Prevention (EDAP) joined forces with the American Anorexia Bulimia Association (AABA) – merging the largest and longest standing eating disorders prevention and advocacy organizations in the world. The merger was the most recent in a series of alliances that has also included the National Eating Disorder Organization (NEDO) and the Anorexia Nervosa & Related Disorders (ANRED).

    Sadly I do not have even $1 to donate. Why? Cause I am on SSI for depression and eating disorder and the government gives me $667 and rent is $550. It is expensive to live these days….especially when you are sick!
    But I think what you are doing is awesome and I want to say thank you so much!!! One day I hope the rate of deaths from EDs will go down. Because of you it just might!

    Do people get receipts for donating through your site?
    I can’t afford to donate anywhere that doesn’t provide a receipt for my taxes.

  3. Hi Mrs. B: Yes, you will receive an email confirmation of your payment from PayPal after you have made the donation.
    Thank you for asking this, I should have noted this for everyone!

  4. Hi Heidi: YOU are the reason giving to NEDA is so important. The fact that ED sufferers can not afford treatment is appauling, and without organizations like NEDA we won’t see change.
    No problem you can not afford a donation…just send us good karma to meet our $500 goal!!
    Take care,
