Participate in Proud2Bme's "It Takes 3" Instagram Challenge!

As the old adage goes, good things come in threes—and this campaign is proof. Starting today, we’re asking our Instagram followers to participate in the It Takes 3 Challenge. The last step? Taking our online ED screening and asking two friends to take it as well.

Simply post your photos on Instagram using #NEDAwareness. Don't forget to tag @Proud2BmeUS!

Take a look at these examples:

February 24: 3 words that inspire

“You are loved: so simple, yet so powerful. Even when I was at my worst, hearing these three words from my family and friends inspired me to recover.”


February 25: 3 things you love about yourself

“My positive outlook, hard work ethic and loyalty to my friends have helped me overcome so much!”             


February 26: A photo of yourself and 2 friends* 

“Casey and Kira are my sorority sisters. When I talked to them about the screening, they promised to take it and share it with the rest of our house.”

*(as an alternative, take a photo of yourself holding up 3 fingers)
