As a small non-profit, EDNS relies entirely on fundraising and donations. Your support helped us provide over 1700 hours of peer support last year!

This #GivingTuesday, EDNS hopes to raise $2500 cover the cost of providing peer support to 20 people.

Here's how your donation can help:

• $25 will provide materials and resources for someone attending our support group
• $50 will provide a month of individual peer support
• $80 will provide a bursary for someone to attend our 12-week group
• $125 will provide someone a month of weekly online support sessions
• $300 will provide on-going training for our peer supporters

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, please consider helping people on the road to recovery. We rely on fundraising and donations to operate and we can't do it without your generous support. Please join us.
