Welcome to Team Koslow! Thank you for coming.
Hi! - welcome to keeping hope alive in the hearts and minds of many of us who mostly often think it doesn't exist. Thanks for clicking and coming to my page. My being here is part of large steps of my own to beating my eating disorder. Your support does not go unnoticed. Thank you again for your time to read and contributions.
If you're here it's likely because you saw me post something about this or you have arrived here through someone. Maybe you're here and you have no idea what this is but are keen to learn, or maybe you are here and you know exactly what this is and exactly what's at stake for you and others.
Eating disorders are these complex, often foreign and scary things that come in so many shapes and sizes and so many varying degrees of severity. As I go through my own journey of first acceptance and my first steps towards recovery I continue to learn both how damaging and how innocuous this disease really is. For people deeply in the middle of it, it makes the world around us fuzzy and confusing. The truths we tell ourselves often don't match up with the Truths that everyone else sees. The pain and shame keeps us from living a full and worthy life.
Maybe all this sounds like nothing you've ever seen or felt from anyone close. Nonetheless, I'm glad you're here. Donating or participating not only helps fortify those of us fighting - reminding us that we matter - but it helps bolster the efforts of NEDA to help others who perhaps can't yet help themselves. I would encourage you to keep your eyes, ears and minds open to learning more about this mental illness so that we can stop eating disorders dead in their tracks before they gain any traction in precious lives.
Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page! It's a scary but wonderful thing to join forces against this disease. I'm so grateful you are here. If you care to reach out to me for any reason (maybe you think you see the makings of this in someone else (or you!) and have no idea what to do, or maybe you are here to learn and work to keep apart from societal copitulation. Either way, I'm here.
Did you know that 30 million men and women will suffer from an eating disorder in their lifetimes? This is one of the many reasons that I am participating in a NEDA Walk to benefit the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)!
NEDA is a nonprofit organization that provides lifesaving programs and services to individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA is dedicated to erasing the stigma surrounding eating disorders, promoting positive body image and discouraging dangerous diet behaviors.
I am asking for your support to help me reach my fundraising goal. Donating to my fundraising page is a way for you to not only show your support for me, but also to show your support for the millions of individuals and families affected by eating disorders.
Since 2009, NEDA Walks have been bringing communities together nationwide in the fight against eating disorders. NEDA Walks raise funds for NEDA’s lifesaving programs that help thousands of people every day!
Your contribution will help fund NEDA’s national Helpline, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, NEDA Navigators and countless other lifesaving programs.
Any amount you can contribute will make a difference in the fight against eating disorders. With your help, I am one step closer to my fundraising goal.
Thank you so much for your support! You can also help by forwarding my page to anyone you think might want to support the cause with us!
