“ART SPEAKS TO OUR NEED TO REVEAL, HEAL, AND TRANSFORM!”
BTCF is on the front lines of changing public dialogue and view on eating disorders! We are a creative and artistic grassroots movement! With your help, we can give voice to the silence of eating disorders and how those who suffer in an artistic engaging emergence of looking at what one goes through on the inside rather than on the outside.
Eating disorders are creative, so let’s be even more creative and light the light to shine brightly on areas that are so desperately in need of healing and recovery!
Your donation will allow us to continue raising awareness, advocating for access to quality art-based programming, creating works of art, outreach inspirational tools and outlets, as well as serving as the leading source of creative expression that inspires, motivates, and implements help and hope across the nation. With the generous support of donors like you, we are able to support those struggling with an eating disorder and hopefully save lives. Donate Now!

BTCF “Grab a Link and Break It” T-shirt designed by Carolyn Hennesy and art by Ellen Spencer. Comes in different styles and many colors!
“Eating disorders are, to be blunt, like fingerprints: each one is unique because each individual who suffers is a one-of-a-kind. There are millions afflicted and no two alike. This category of disease spans the globe, hence the need to show the entire planet encircled by the chains of this monster. But women (yes, men suffer as well, but let’s be honest…societal pressures on women are far more effective in creating and aiding these disorders) are taking more and more control everyday and pulling the links of that chain apart. Dancing (as they’re doing here) singing, writing…art in all of its forms plays an enormous role in the healing process but perhaps nothing will be more effective at destroying these disorders than the simple act of talking with one another and to the world at large. If we truly desire to remove the shame and stigma we have to start the conversation and keep it going. It’s the duty of everyone who suffers and the duty of those who care about them. So basically…everyone. Grab a link and break it!”
