This month, our very own Tracy has chosen NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) as our charity of the month to highlight and add to our donations checkout page. NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders through advocacy, family care and hotline support. In the U.S. 20 million women and 10 million men will suffer from an eating disorder at one point in their lives. NEDA exists to make recovery possible and accessible.
From Tracy: “I chose NEDA for August’s featured charity because it not only provides support for individuals with eating disorders and their family members, but also seeks to educate and prevent these disorders. They provide online resources that connect individuals with a helpline, a treatment finder and an online community.”
Here are some other ways you can get involved with NEDA:
- Participate is NEDAwareness Week!: National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (#NEDAwareness) is to shine the spotlight on eating disorders by educating the public, spreading a message of hope, and putting lifesaving resources into the hands of those in need.
- Partner with us in Confident Body, Confident Child: An evidence-based resource providing parenting strategies to promote positive body image, healthy eating and physical activity in children aged 2 to 6 years.
- Donate! Recovery is possible, and you can make it happen!
|In the month of July, 124 Zuma customers donated to our seven main charities and our July charity Homes with Hope. By using our donations checkout page and rounding up their order totals, they were able to donate $78.14 in total! Thank you all so much for contributing to these groups and doing good work!
