Here at Diabetic Connect, we’ve read many heart-wrenching stories about how difficult financial circumstances have made it harder for some of our members to manage their condition. In honor of World Diabetes Day on November 14, we decided we wanted to do something to help.
On Saturday, November 14, we’ll award a $250 Visa gift card to someone or some diabetes organization in need.
And we want everyone to help us in making the decision. Ideas can be shared here on this discussion about who could use the extra help this month. If you have a friend here who is going through tough times, tell us about him or her. Or if you are putting together a “walk for the cure event,” explain why you’d like to receive the donation. Or if you know of another worthy diabetes cause, tell us about it.
Ideas will be generated here in this discussion. Then nominations need to be sent to me through email.
Identify the particular circumstance that you think is deserving of the help, then send your nomination to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to put “Nomination” in the subject line.
Amy, myself, and other Alliance Health staff members will consider all the nominations and make the final decision about where the gift card could do the greatest good. We’ll make the announcement on Diabetic Connect.
We do ask you to be sensitive. It can be very humbling to ask for help. Let’s allow this to be a safe place, where we don’t pass judgment.
Thank you all for helping us make Diabetic Connect a great place.
