#ANAD Giving Tuesday Initiative Starts on December 3, 2013 We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Wouldn’t it be great to have a day for giving back? The first Tuesday following Thanksgiving has been deemed #GivingTuesday! ANAD has joined other charities across the nation for the #Giving Tuesday Initiative. Help us kick off the holiday season and donate online at www.anad.org.
February 23-March 1 Eating Disorders Awareness Week – A week when eating disorder illnesses draw greater attention via the efforts of individuals like YOU! Through intentional activities, conversations and events we can all help create an environment that redefines outdated thinking, reduces the stigma associated with weight, body shape, or size, and inspires someone to reconsider an unhealthy attitude or behavior.
