World Diabetes 2010 is over and it was fantastic, but our work spreading the diabetes gospel continues for the next 365 days.
National Diabetes Month is still in full swing and I think it's really important to keep the Advocacy ball rolling.
But let's face it, being a Diabetes Advocate is a 24X 7 job - and we never get rewarded with time off for good behavior.
Since I'm a firm believer in rewards and have been getting all sorts of interesting things in my inbox as of late, I've decided that for the next three Mondays, I'll be Offering 3 different contests rewarding my readers for all the hard work they do.
Let's call it: MONDAY CONTEST MADNESS
All you have to do to win is:
1 visit the blog daily and enter a comment. The more comments you leave that week, the higher yur odds are of winning.
2. Hope that your name gets pulled out of the hat on Friday
The first contest, which starts today is all about PJ's for The Cure.
Many other fantastic Diabetes Blogs have offered the PJs as a giveaway and now it's my turn!
The PJs are sold exclusively at www.pjsforthecure.org and if you go to the website, you'll see the fabulous designs include;' two different designs for boys, three for girls and three for women, including a mother-daughter matching set.
100% of the proceeds from all sales being donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to fund diabetes research.
Komar has designed women's and children’s pajama sets to raise $1 million to help find a cure for type I diabetes (juvenile diabetes).
Children’s sets are $25 and women $40. Shipping is free. The women’s pajamas have a nifty little interior pocket designed to hold an insulin pump and come in sizes small through extra large.
According to the press release, the children's PJs are snug fitting, feature soft, 100% cotton fabric and come in sizes 2T through size 12.
Why did Charles Komar, CEO of Komar, launch this thing called PJs for the cure? The same reason the rest of us advocate for a cure! In late 2009. Mr. Komar's wife Liz was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1990, and their lives were changed for ever.
I love the Blue Circle PJs for ladies!
So leave your comments on the blog this week and check back in on Friday to see who won!
