Letters for Prevention

Needing Volunteer Staff for a worthwhile program called Letters For Prevention. Letters for Prevention is an outreach effort, aimed at educating people about the dangers and misery wrought from eating disorders. The premise of the program has been to put together a packet of letters written by people who have actually struggled with eating disorders, with a special emphasis on the mental aspects. The letters are being distributed per request, and the number of emails requesting them has gotten to the point where we need extra staff to help respond to the e-mails.

Anyone interested in this opportunity should contact Kelsey at Letters2Prevent@yahoo.com.
