MGEDT Christmas Appeal 2014
This Christmas Men Get Eating Disorders Too is asking our supporters to consider donating during the festive season. In 2015 we want to make an even bigger impact by awareness raising, campaigning and supporting the needs of sufferers, carers and families affected by eating disorders UK-wide. You can help make that happen by getting involved today.
As a charity, we engage with people in desperate need and isolated, who are not able to seek the support they need no matter of their location.
- £3 can provide free information packs to those who need it
- £25 can provide 1 hour online support sessions for male users and the carers
- £100 covers the cost of the printing and distributing of 5000 awareness posters distributed to various community settings across the UK
- £150 covers the cost of a monthly peer support group for male sufferers and carers
- £300 covers the cost enables us to put on event or workshops for carers, friend, family members and others supporting male sufferers

“MGEDT was a lifeline to me when I was severely ill with anorexia. Its pages were full of information and help, advice and support links which helped me on my way to recovery.”
“MGEDT is a real resource for men struggling with eating disorders. Because they are too often classed as something only women deal with, men are not likely to speak out or seek help. Resorting to the internet is probably the only way men can start their journey to full health and MGEDT is there to help them make the first step.”
“Before I discovered MGEDT I was isolated due to my eating disorder and being male, this led me to assume I was a freak of nature. No health professionals would take me seriously and I struggled to get listened to. Knowing MGEDT exists and offers a support network I can participate in, I don’t feel so alone. It also encourages me to speak out about my experience in the hope it will help other men going through similar situations.”
“MGEDT have provided some excellent modes of communication for myself other men – volunteering for the charity allowed me to feel part of a community. Participating in the sharing of ideas, having a voice and hearing ideas from hundreds of miles away through MGEDT related media was incredibly rewarding!”
