This Edition of " Diabetesalicious Lite" is all about Birthdays, Births, Diaversaries, Seeds of Change, New Jobs and funky but no less important holidays.
The You Can Do This Project celebrates it's first birthday today. Rumor has it that Miss Manners suggests cupcakes as an anniversary/ birthday gift to celebrate the first you. Kim Vlasnik over @ Texting My Pancreas started the YCDT project a year ago today. And in case you ever think "You can't" do diabetes, you'll quickly change your mind when you checkout the YCDT Project & realize that you can - And that there are so many others that do what you do regarding your diabetes life & are there for you! Be sure to tweet her congrats @txtngmypancreas
Speaking of Birthdays, Tony over at Blogging Diabetes is celebrating the birth of his beautiful daughter, Scarlett! Stop on over & welcome her to the world and if you're on the twitter, give them a shout out at: @bloggingdiabetes!
Today is the final day you can place your vote for DHF Seed Grant finalists videos.
Personally, I think they all should get some seed money because each of the contestants (sounds like a beauty pageant) programs that are competing for funding are amazing and I personally believe that if each of their ideas "take root," every single person living with or affected by diabetes lives would be changed for the better! Luckily, you can vote for more than just one by clicking here:
