In just a few weeks all of us have raised about enough to fund around 80 people's tests. 80 people who would not otherwise be counted toward the total we need for the international challenge to be successful. That is a significant contribution, but we'll need to find donations to cover hundreds more before we can begin. Have you donated yet?
The donations are coming in by credit card, check, and checque; from the US and the UK, and from sources around the world. They are coming from families who have been touched by eating disorders but also from their friends and family. We're hearing from patients, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, grandparents, colleagues, neighbors... People care. People care!
And this is how it is done, friends. We want to crack the code for eating disorders so we can improve treatment, save lives, return young people to their goals and giggles and futures. If we don't do this, it won't happen: be part of it.

As for Charlotte, her pastime this week, aside from saving lives of children, is chickens. For you, Charlotte!
