This past weekend our team enjoyed a fun, laughter and joy-filled day with Kristina Saffran, co-founder of Project Heal. Seriously, it was an absolutely great time!
You know those people who have a similar passion and soul-filled direction as you? You know how easy it is to relate to them and how it feels a lot more like you are hanging out with an old friend? Well, thats what it felt like for our team :)
Kristina is a wonderful, compassionate, and life giving person! You should definitely meet her some day!
Along with her friend, Liana, she co-founded Project Heal 7 or 8 years ago when they were teenagers moving toward recovery from their own eating disorder struggles. When I was a teenager I certainly wasn't starting non-profits dedicated to helping fund people who do not have access to high quality treatment for an eating disorder... But this was a passion of Kristina and Liana's, and they went for it!
So go google Project Heal. Awesome people.
Anyways, back to the purpose of this blog entry... what were we doing hanging out with Kristina?
We were filming our second RECOVER film. It is an honor for us to be able to tell Kristina's story of full recovery from an eating disorder :)
We still have one more day of filming (yes, these things take quite some time to put together), but I hope that you are as excited to see it as I am and that, when you do see it, you gain a sense of hope that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible!
Our first RECOVER film was done with Johanna Kulp. Take a look!
