November is Diabetes Awareness month and once again Diabetic Connect is running a campaign to raise support for the blue circle to become the universal diabetes awareness symbol.

This year you can get your blue circle on the map by visiting our awareness page and pledging. Just click on the link below.

The best part is, if you pledge you can get the newest badge!

The map says it's global, but only allows you to put your circle on it using a zip code. You know the US is the only country that uses those things, right? I couldn't put my circle on Abu Dhabi.

Welcome to the family!

Click on the plus symbol (+) in the upper left corner a few times to zoom in and make the map image larger, then while clicking and holding your left mouse button, drag the map in the direction of your country (left or right) once you are over it click the plus sign (+) a few times to enlarge your location and place the indicator there.

I hope that this helps.

Thanks for the advice, but it didn't work. I can reach my country, but it doesn't want to put the circle on there without a zipcode. I zoomed in all the way to my street and my home…

click on the feedback link on the bottom of this page and tell the techs about this oversight. Maybe they could find a workaround for you.

Howdy Temi

To put it on Facebook go to the advertisement page (currently on DC) on the upper right of the page there's a box entitled "Spread the Word". There's an icon for Facebook. Cllick on the icon you'll get a box entitled "Share: On your own timeline"

Follow the instructions there.

I made my pledge, it shows it, but I didn't get the new badge. :-(
Are there more steps??
