MAYDAYS Donation

Eating disorders have an alarmingly high mortality and suicide risk. This May, we are raising awareness about the concerning number of deaths linked to eating disorders and the huge impact this has on family, friends and the community. 

Will you help us by giving a donation this MAYDAYS?

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 MAYDAYS tax appeal could allow us to do the following things.

  • Fund our far reaching education programs to support young people in schools. 
  • Assist in the development of online programs and information for those in rural and remote area.
  • Allow face to face and online support groups for those with an eating disorder and their carers.  

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. ›
