Another day another important Eating Disorder Awareness Week related campaign for you to get involved with. This time the campaign is being championed by ‘The Hearts Minds and Genes Coalition for Eating Disorders’ and is titled ‘Anybody and everybody’ utilising #ChangeTheStory.
The campaign is working to highlight the important reality the Eating Disorders DO NOT discriminate – they can affect anyone irrespective of their body weight, age, gender, ethnicity or social status. They are serious conditions irrespective of the weight of the person – and everybody deserve access to care.
You might recall that I launched my YouTube channel with a video much about this reality, so I will embed that video again here in case you missed it.
Getting back to the practicalities of the campaign we are being called to MAKE SOME NOISE about the reality of Eating Disorders. You can do so by:
1. Taking a photo with one of the campaign placards (or writing #changethestory on a piece of paper) and sharing on your social media. Don’t forget to use the hashtag.
2. Recording a video showing your support for the campaign saying why you are getting behind the #ChangeTheStory campaign – again share this on your socials with the hashtag.
3. If you don’t want to share your own face instead sharing the campaign video on your socials. Find the campaign video below, and you can also find the downloads ON THE CAMPAIGNE PAGE.
4. If you haven’t already sign the #DumpTheScale petition which this campaign is part of via THIS LINK HERE.
Until next time, be kind, be curious, be yourself.
