#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since inception, this idea has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
This #GivingTuesday please consider making a charitable donation to the Eating Disorder Coalition of Iowa (EDCI).
Charitable giving greatly assists EDCI in providing support, awareness and education to Iowans across the state. Your donation is impactful in many ways.
An executive director was hired in 2021 to assist in the day-to-day operations of EDCI. Your donation helps fund this position to allow the board to work on new projects and initiatives.
Hosting trainings and continuing education for medical providers, mental health care providers, dietitians, and families/caregivers is a priority for EDCI. In 2021, 100+ individuals attended the EDCI virtual conference featuring leading treatment providers from across the country. Your contribution makes it possible for EDCI to continue providing trainings for treatment providers in our state.
Support groups will be restarting in 2022 to assist Iowans who are currently struggling with disordered eating and body image concerns. Your donation can help cover training costs for group facilitators and help offset the expenses associated with running these groups.
Upcoming events for Eating Disorder Awareness Week (February 2022) are in the planning process. Your donation helps us to reach out to our local school districts/colleges to provide awareness and education about eating disorders.
Those who work with EDCI and are on our board of directors graciously volunteer their time and energy to keep our organization thriving. All donations are greatly appreciated to continue the vision of EDCI: to have an Iowa free from eating disorders.
So this holiday season, while you are making a list and checking it twice, think of EDCI and consider making a charitable donation. We are eternally grateful for your support!
