As with any great societal breakthroughs, community engagement is what will eventually break the back of this insidious, devastating disease. The Looking Glass Foundation is a caring community of prevention and support for people who are suffering. We are the recovered and recovering, the families and friends, the colleagues, clinicians, service providers, donors, and volunteers. We are growing in numbers, every day. And we are making a difference in people’s lives.
Join us. Be a part of the community that is getting to the other side of eating disorders:
Learn more about the disease. Eating disorders are needlessly misunderstood and laden with shame — shame that makes coming forward for help incredibly difficult. If you are interested in learning more about the realities of this disease and the paths of recovery from it, call or email us to learn more. We’re happy to answer questions, refer you to resources, customize a workshop, deliver training. Just ask.
Play an active role in another’s recovery. So many people know of someone who is either at risk for developing an eating disorder, or is already suffering. If you’re one of them and you want to do more to help, let us know. We can provide the guidance you need to intervene in an appropriate, caring, and constructive way — and make a profound difference in someone’s life.
Volunteer. We’re a lean operation, with very few employees. We rely on the service of others. If you are interested in becoming a Looking Glass program coordinator, moderator, or facilitator — or if you would like to volunteer your time in some other way — tell us about yourself. We are always looking for compassionate people, sincerely dedicated to help.
Donate. We have big dreams, and big dreams don’t come true just by dreaming them. Your financial support can be the difference we’re working so hard to make.
Join our conversation. We are the minds, and ears, and voices that are getting to the other side of eating disorders. Lend us yours. Get in touch by phone or email, sign up for our newsletter, join us on Twitter or Facebook. We welcome you.
Celebrate with us. Every year, we honour our community’s achievements with a Gala fundraising celebration. Let’s just say … it’s a lot of fun, in a room of love. If you’re interested in being on our 2017 Gala invite list, say the word. We’d love to have you! (For a glimpse of our 2016 Gala, click here.)
