Promote the week to your colleagues, friends, family
Ask your local businesses to adopt the colour purple for Feb 1-7 in their window displays or by wearing purple ribbons, hats, socks, gloves or scarves. Here is a template letter you may want to use and/or adapt. (Be sure to send us a photo if they do participate so we can share it!)
Ask your municipality to issue a proclamation of the week. Most cities and towns have information about how to request this on their website. If you are successful, be sure to let our Office Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) know so they can share the information with NEDIC, who is recording all the proclamations across Canada!
Ask your municipality to light up a local landmark in purple and tweet the picture to @EatingDSNA with the hashtag #EDAW. (Let the Office Administrator (email@example.com) know so she can inform the national database with NEDIC.)
Share an information page, pamphlet, link, video, book title or any of the other resources found on our Resources page
Let your educators know that we have a resource page just for them about eating disorders in the classroom
Let your fitness instructor or coach know we have a resource page just for them about eating disorders in athletes
Let your healthcare professional know we have a resource page just for them too!
Host a social media event, like the #InnerSelfie campaign or do your own version of #Smash_ED in your backyard!
Talk about eating disorders and share your story.
Follow the EDAW activities across Canada and show your support on social media, using the hashtags #EDAW
Donate to EDSNA so we can continue to host free events, offer presentations and provide support to those who need it. We are a registered charity, so you will receive a tax receipt.
