What are you doing for WDD?

(PBell) #2

I hadn't thought of it.   Maybe I'll write a letter to my re elected congressman.  Maybe I'll send an email to my address book as well.

Any other ideas?

I'll be wearing blue and wearing my WDD t-shirt from last year and my blue circle pin!

I am going to wear blue too. I wanted to light up my house in blue but i forget to buy the bulbs!

I am behind here, what is the significance of blue?  What does it represent?

Pam the best thing you can do is go to www.worlddiabetesday.org it explains everything!

Wow.  I am behind! I used to be up on all this diabetes stuff. Too busy trying to just keep my kids' bs under control.  Next year I will be totally prepared.  Blue lights are a great idea.

I wore my blue Ride to Cure Diabetes 2008 t-shirt.

I posted links to juvenation.org ALL over diabetes groups on facebook.

I did some tweets (http://twitter.com) about WDD.

I added a "Happy World Diabetes Day" with a link to website on my g-talk status.


I think that's it.

Our neighborhood had its 10th annual gala benefitting JDRF on Nov 14th.  It was lots of fun---lots of great silent auctions items and some really cool live auction items (like a puppy and a signed Hannah Montana guitar).   It was definitely a party with a purpose!!!!!!  (and I can't think of a better purpose than working to cure type 1 diabetes!)  :-)

Well, I didn't really do anything for WDD, but for Diabetes month I am going to ask my sister, who's pretty popular on youtube, her account is PenguinsLovePurple to do a video on Diabetes Awareness Month.

My video No Need For Needles was the top 3 pick for the Young Voices: Life with Diabetes and showed in NYC during World Diabetes Day hosted by Discovery Health, Novo Nordisk etc. so that was really cool to be voted for as top 3 :)

You can see the video on my youtube page www.youtube.com/alliemitch09
