01 Feb 2017 The My Future Is Team

Welcome to My Future Is, working to help everyone.

3:00pm Eastern Standard Time. With a single click, months of work come to light, and My Future Is becomes live, and an actual organization with a mission. For the three of us who have been working nonstop these past few months, it has been a difficult and tiresome journey, but one we would not trade for anything else in the world. It is always exciting to launch a new company, and especially when it is a nonprofit dedicated to something as important as eating disorders.

But this much effort begs one questions: why? Why would we go through the effort of starting this organization and doing all the required paperwork? Believe me, that is a question we asked ourselves quite a few times.

In the end, what kept us going was the fact that if we can help just one person who is dealing with Eating Disorder then it is worth it.

In the creation of this organization, the three current members of the My Future Is chose four goals they hope to focus on over the course of the next few years: treatment, education, support, and fundraising

It is extremely exciting to take the knowledge I have from running successful businesses, and apply it towards a non profit organization with such a wonderful goal.

When it comes to treatment, My Future Is wants to increase the number of people who seek treatment to at least 15% in the next 5 years, up from 10%. Our education initatives are focused on people ages 12-25, either through speaking seminars at their schools, or community events. We hope to have 10 small events, and one large event a year.

My Future Is working with some leading providers to develop a solid network of support that people can rely on. We plan on having this network finished by Q3 2018. Finally, our fundraising initatives will go to sponsoring research and treatment in eating disorders.

So with the organization started and specific goals in mind, we are now hard at work expanding the My Future Is network, and planning our first series of events. It will be an exciting time as we build this organization out, and we hope you join us in this wild ride.
