FAQ: Is OneShare Health a Non-Profit Organization?

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on May 3, 2022

Yes! OneShare Health LLC is a Christian non profit organization and it shares the Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status of its parent, OneShare International (d/b/a Anabaptist HealthShare).For readers who aren’t familiar, a non-profit organization (NPO), also known as a “nonbusiness entity” or “not-for-profit organization,” is one that is dedicated to furthering a particular social cause or advocating for a shared point of view. Rather than distributing income to the organization's shareholders, leaders, or members, a non-profit will use its surplus of revenue to further achieve its ultimate objective, which is typically humanitarian in nature.

Non-profits are tax-exempt, or charitable, meaning they do not pay income tax on the money that they receive for their organization.

Let’s Get Logging: Food Journal Tips for Procrastinators

By OneShare Health on 11:00 AM on April 19, 2022

For some, keeping a food journal to lose weight is a tried-and-true way to keep track of a healthy diet plan. But, for others, our journals are full of nothing more than wide-eyed and ambitious—yet incomplete—plans to keep track of what goes in our body.

The late-night-snack-eaters, the impromptu-drive-thru-abiders, and those who suffer from frequent “I’m-too-tired-can-I-please-just-skip-a-day” mentalities are well-versed in what it means to neglect your food journaling. But it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We become all too familiar with the subsequent blank pages that follow our first few entries; motivation fades, and, honestly, there’s no way around it: following through with our well-intentioned plans can be a tough hurdle to overcome.

Here’s some mental health advice that’s long overdue: start journaling!

 

For as long as people have been able to write, they’ve been recording their thoughts. In fact, one of the earliest instances of journaling occurs in the Meditations of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, which date back all the way to the 2nd century AD. Sure, not all of us are busy ruling an empire or pondering the “transience of the physical world,” but each day presents us with new and unforeseen challenges that can make it difficult to keep our heads on straight.

We spoke with Kathy O’Keefe about drug addiction and prevention. Read how she and WTF are helping loved ones come together during their darkest hour.

In American society, the term “addict” is often synonymous with something sinister. Rather than recognizing and empathizing with a person who has faults and feelings, society has turned to ostracizing instead of helping those who self-medicate through vices. This vicious cycle of stigma that criminalizes addicts instead of rehabilitating them, increases recidivism and the likelihood of relapse. And, instead of seeking help, the stigma instills a sense of shame in users; feelings of guilt and that they must face their demons alone, when it should not be this way.
