Thank you all for helping us reach our fundraising goal during our recent Give Thanks to F.E.A.S.T. fundraising campaign! We couldn’t have done it without you!
In addition to the generous donations, we received many moving and meaningful comments from parents who have been helped by F.E.A.S.T. We treasure these expressions of appreciation, and we would like to share some of them with you:
“When we discovered that our 11 year old son was restricting and very unwell, we turned to our GP, our local Eating Disorder clinic and countless Psychologists only to be told that he was too young for their services or the waitlists were very long. We turned online and found F.E.A.S.T. and the ATDT forums. These sites contributed to saving our son’s life and we can’t thank you enough.”
“When we were lost in the darkness F.E.A.S.T. was one of the only sources of light. Thanks again for all you folks do.”
“It has helped so much to be understood and you have helped us understand, thank you.”
“Your Around The Dinner Table forum saves lives. It’s as simple as that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“I am so very grateful for finding F.E.A.S.T. early on in my daughter’s eating disorder. I would be lost without the many resources available, including First 30Days, webinars, weekly e-mails, and all of the informative information on the website. I have shared F.E.A.S.T.’s information with other families and am very glad to give back to this wonderful organization. You have truly been the saving grace in my darkest days and hours. THANK YOU!!”
“The last 3 years have been really hard but would have been impossible without F.E.A.S.T. It’s a relief to have somewhere I feel understood. Thank you.”
“Thank you to all the volunteers at F.E.A.S.T. Your words of wisdom, your encouragement, your updates on new developments in the treatment of eating disorders has continually lifted my spirits and gives me hope. Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you!!”
“I am forever grateful for F.E.A.S.T & its incredible team of volunteers. Your 30 day caregiver empowerment program was my saviour during the most terrifying time of our lives. I shudder to think how much more difficult navigating the eating disorder would have been without your services to guide us! Even doctors (unless trained in EDs) are inadequately trained to provide the help we needed! Thank you again and ALWAYS for your dedication to helping families get through this illness! As long as I am able I will support your organization!”
“Thank you for guiding us and holding our hands through the storm!”
“Your ‘First 30 Days‘ program provided our family with so much pertinent knowledge and support, it truly brought comfort at such a chaotic time in our lives.”
“I’ve been SO grateful for the support this year. ED has been one of the hardest experiences in our lives. I find the information you send so helpful. I’m often in tears, or nodding along, or inspired to keep on fighting another day. Thank you.”
To all of the parents who sent us messages of gratitude and to all parents out there in our community, we are sorry that you need F.E.A.S.T. but we are so glad that you found us. It is our pleasure to help you in whatever way we can. You are most welcome.
If you missed our fundraising campaign but would still like to donate to F.E.A.S.T, please do!
