Drug addiction isn’t the only struggle our friends and family members face. According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, nearly eight million people in America suffer from an eating disorder. That’s a number we can’t live with. In order to do our part to help men and women suffering from eating disorders, we’ve partnered up with NEDA--the National Eating Disorders Association.
As the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting people with eating disorders, NEDA has the potential to change the way we view conditions like anorexia and bulimia. Eating disorders are wildly misunderstood, which means many people with this mental health concern are left feeling helpless and alone without the support they need. In fact, because of their life-threatening potential, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any other mental health problem. NEDA’s goal is not only to bring support and recovery to those with eating disorders, but also to raise awareness and encourage more research into this serious condition.
If you choose to donate part of your No1Down purchase to NEDA, your contribution will go towards research, support resources, prevention programs, and eating disorder education. Your donation might even help spread awareness during NEDAwareness week! Earlier this year, 45 landmarks were illuminated in green and blue to help spread the word about eating disorders. With your help, we can share this message around the world and back again!
