Raising Funds for Eating Disorder Treatment During the Pandemic

Promoting Connection

Through Isolation:

The current COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting, challenging, and transforming our daily routines and future plans.

With consciousness and collaboration, we will find our way through these times. We are flattening the curve for COVID-19 by sheltering in place. Unfortunately, the curve for eating disorders is not flattened by staying indoors. In fact, eating disorders tend to worsen in isolation.

We generally lead an annual conference to help flatten the eating disorder curve. However, to ensure the safety of everyone, this year’s conference, Critical Conversations: Addressing the Needs of Our Trans Communities with Eating Disorders, has been postponed. Regardless, EDRS, Inc. remains dedicated to supporting folks in need of treatment during these trying times. To give us guidance on these efforts, our board returned to the EDRS mission statement for wisdom:

“We are committed to promoting recovery and wellness for those impacted by eating disorders by providing support, information, and education to individuals, families, professionals and the community at large regarding eating disorders and recovery resources.”

Support our Mission Online!

After reviewing our mission and putting our heads together, we have decided to transition our fundraising efforts to an online treatment fund campaign – Promoting Connection Through Isolation: 
Raising Funds for Eating Disorder Treatment During the Pandemic. We are so grateful to you, our wonderful sponsors for helping us support our most vulnerable population and keeping our mission alive. Please join us by sponsoring our Online EDRS Treatment Fundraising Campaign (sponsorship levels below).

The EDRS, Inc. Treatment Fund is available to qualifying California residents who are in need of financial assistance for eating disorder treatment. This fund is sponsored by donations made by friends of EDRS and through EDRS Annual Conference and fundraising events.

“EDRS has been an exceptional foundation that provided funds to help me recover from my eating disorder and severe trauma as a child and teen. EDRS held me when I had no family or outside support. I have been able to give back to EDRS through my recovery and years of volunteering. My life has forever been changed by these wonderful leaders and women, and with their support I am now a licensed therapist specializing in eating disorders and trauma. EDRS holds a legacy of community, grassroots and love. I am forever grateful. I owe it much of my recovery and life. With love and heart.”
