Spare a Rose, Save a Child


Insulin. It's as necessary to survival as air. Everyone needs it to live. I recently went to the pharmacy to buy insulin and had to leave because I couldn't afford my prescription. It was frightening, but I could go back to the pharmacy a few days later and get the insulin I needed. Other people aren't so lucky.

Children with Type 1 Diabetes in the developing world need our help. The Life for a Child program, which is an International Diabetes Federation program aiming to take “contributions from donors [to] go to established diabetes centers enabling them to provide the ongoing clinical care and diabetes education these children need to stay alive.”

This year the Diabetes Hands Foundation is asking each of us to donate the cost of one Valentine's rose to Life For A Child. For more information click here.
