Christmas Appeal Donation

Butterfly knows that with effective education, specialised treatment and ongoing support, eating disorders can be overcome. Will you help us this Christmas?

Every donation helps Butterfly to reach more people and makes it that much easier for someone with an eating disorder to get the help that they need. 

Your donation to our Christmas appeal will allow us to do the following things. 

  • Help fund our far reaching education programs to support young people. 
  • Support our specialised treatment program, the Butterfly Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Contribute to our National Helpline, which provides vital assistance to those living with an eating disorder and their loved-ones. 

THANK YOU for your support.

Worried about a friend or someone you care about?

It can be extremely difficult raising the subject of eating disorders with a friend or loved one. To be supportive one needs to learn what to say and what not to say.  


We can help you with knowing when to talk to your friend and what to say. ›
