Spare A Rose. Save A Child.
February and I have a love/hate relationship. It’s cold, icy and there are piles of snow. But on the other hand, February was the month that my wonderful husband was born, Valentine’s Day and a time when members of the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) band together to help children with diabetes through the #SpareARose campaign.
I have access to insulin, something that no one can live without. For those of us with Type 1 diabetes, our bodies don’t make it for us anymore. But there are many who do not have access to insulin, hence this campaign.
If you buy your sweetheart roses for Valentine’s Day (or if you don’t) consider buying 11 instead of 12 and donate one flower’s cost to Life for a Child, a wonderful organization that helps provide insulin and supplies to children with diabetes in need. This campaign started February 1st and runs through Valentine’s Day (February 14th for anyone who needs the reminder).
For approximately the cost of one rose, you can provide a month’s worth of insulin for a child in need. The 2014 campaign raised enough money to provide 1 year of life for 454 children. Please consider donating and sharing this message. Go here to donate.
