For the first time, my New Year’s resolution was to not have a resolution. I decided I didn’t want to give my internal critic another yardstick to use against me. In lieu of a resolution—and in honor of all of us who have lived or are living with an eating disorder—I am opting to live BIG. And I invite you to join me: instead of trying to change ourselves, what if instead we invest our time and talents in work that is really important?
As it turns out (coincidence?), this is exactly what we are doing here at the Foundation. While we are very pleased with all we have accomplished to date (for a snapshot of our accomplishments in 2017, please see the Foundation’s Annual Report), it genuinely feels like we are just getting started.
That is why 2018 is all about GO BIG. We are focused on how to generate BIG impact and BIG growth—because the wellbeing of hundreds of thousands of children and adults depends on some game-changing plays in the eating disorder prevention/support space. As I, again this month, talk with parents who are grieving the death of their children to an eating disorder, I submit this all-in strategy is the only option.
Your support has been critical toward getting the Foundation to where we are today, and having you as our partner means everything to us. We ask that you renew your commitment to preventing and ending eating disorders. Together, let’s GO BIG—and really, really mean it.
A great place to kick off your commitment to GO BIG: Join us at the Foundation’s annual gala on Saturday, March 3, and help us both celebrate what we have accomplished, together, and kick off the next phase of The Emily Program Foundation’s work to prevent and end eating disorders.
