#showusyourpurple is a collaborative, low-barrier national social media campaign to raise awareness about eating disorders that started in 2019 with leadership from Body Brave. Help us draw attention to EDAW by wearing something purple, sharing it, and nominating others to share it on social media. Everyone can join in, whether they have lived experience or not. The more people that participate, the better?
It's an easy way to raise awareness and help break down stigma. Just by sharing a photo on social media in support of EDAW, you can help to change things for the better. Over one million people living in Canada are experiencing this - we can't afford to wait!
Purple is the colour of passion, inspiration, and calmness. It speaks to both the urgency of our mission and the thoughtful, rational approach that is driving our strategic vision forward.
