As many of you know I founded Fed Up Inc. in 2009 to make a difference in the world. It has been over 3 years since I brought this project to life and it has been one heck of a learning experience! I have enjoyed every moment of bringing this idea to life and now know that I can definitely do anything I put my mind to. I know I have impacted the lives of youth and adults alike and I know there is more to come.
I feel compelled to write this so you know that I actually work full time in a wonderful career. Fed Up actually has zero employees and we run on a shoe-string budget (which I fundraise myself). To clarify this is something I do in my free time because it is my passion. I am also the proud pet parent to two dogs and two brand new rescue kittens. Plus I have a social life and need down time! I am 100% committed to this charity and will continue to get our programs out there. But just know I haven’t just given up on blogging, doing events, teaching, etc.. Instead just like all of you I have to work hard to pay the bills! And I REALLY love my career.
We will have some interns take over some of the blogging responsibilities and we are looking for volunteers to teach our programming in 2013. I am still involved during my free time, as this is my #1 philanthropic endeavor, but remember this is a tiny non-profit working on a teeny tiny budget (that I fundraise myself!).
Thank you so much for sharing in this philanthropic organization. Thank you for supporting us. I look forward to teaching a few sessions on the weekends next year (or maybe I will get a day off and can devote that to teaching No Body Bashing™). If you have any comments or questions please feel free to reach out! I look forward to developing Fed Up Inc. into something that will continue to change and empower youth for years to come. There is simply nothing more rewarding than giving back.
