Hi Baxter,
I am the founder of the SOCKIT TO ED advocacy campaign. The project is the first ever global eating disorder campaign taking place this February..
I have had an offer from a SOCK manufacturer to donate $$ for each pair of socks bought internationally. Do you have a list of international ED nonprofits?
Thank you for your help.
