'Perfect is Boring' t-shirt GIVEAWAY!

The Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness (PEDAW) campaign would like to thank each and every single person who voted and supported our efforts to win the CYCC Video Contest.  We have been overwhelmed by your messages of support and the shear number of votes. So for that, thank-you.

The PEDAW Committee felt incredibly touched to see so many people around the country, and even the rest of the world, cast their votes for our PEDAW program.  

We truly feel like all organizations in the running were 'winners,' and a huge amount of visibility and awareness was brought to our Eating Disorder Awareness campaign!  

PEDAW will continue to strive in strengthening our prevention strategies of eating disorders and forge ahead with our plans for educational tools and awareness. This work is just too important not to do!  The ages of those affected by eating disorders are becoming younger and younger, with the overall numbers of those suffering on the rise. This has to STOP!

As a way to say thank-you, we'd like to take this moment and give away one of our 'Perfect is BORING' t-shirts to celebrate one lucky person!  Please comment below on this blog post with what Eating Disorder prevention activities and/or strategies you'd like PEDAW to do this upcoming year, and I will draw one winner at random from all entries at 12:00pm PST on Friday, June 28, 2013! 


*This contest is open to residents of Canada and US only, unless otherwise stated. Contest timelines are published on each individual post along with entry methods. Winners are announced on the contest blog posts.


  1. I think you guys should definitely do meditation classes! It's been the most helpful thing to me

  2. I'd love to see more positive body image talk/representation out there for boys/men!!!! I also think it would be awesome to start a petition asking for DBT to be taught in elementary/public school as those are skills that would definitely help to prevent eating disorders! :)

  3. After taking Chelsea Roff's "Yoga, Food, and Body Image" workshop this weekend, I'm thinking that I'd love to see more ED awareness at gyms and yoga studios. How can we connect with these organizations to help them become aware that people may be using their facilities for self-harm?

  4. As I am wanting to bring a similar message to Victoria/Vancouver Island I would love to see some sort of support/mentoring etc. Bringing this message into the schools here with a path paved by PEDAW would give it more validity. Creating change across the province with volunteers backed by PEDAW would be amazing!

  5. Do something with yoga or exercise places. Maybe something with helping balance healthy exercise, rather than excessive exercising.

  6. The positive body image graphics have really helped me in my recovery journey. There also can never be too many links to new research and discoveries about ED articles. Understanding the science behind ED has opened doors for me in forgiving myself.

  7. Winner is Krystal Jarvis! Email to claim your prize! Great suggestions everyone!
