D Awareness Giveaway: TALLYGEAR and RED BENCH DESIGNS

This week's giveaway comes to us courtesy of TALLYGEAR and RED BENCH DESIGNS!

The first item this week is a Jack's Joy necklace from Red Bench Designs. 


Cindy Schneider is the owner of Red Bench Designs and the creator of all this beautiful jewelry!  Cindy started making jewelry after the birth of her first child, Jack.  The Jack's Joy collection was created after Jack was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2008.

Cindy writes:

"April 1, 2008 is a day I will never forget. This was the day our three year old son, Jack, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. In a heartbeat, my adorable, fun-loving, active little boy’s life changed forever.
Our carefree, perfect world had been turned upside down. Our days and nights now include up to 10 finger pokes to monitor blood sugar levels for highs and lows, scheduled snacks and meals, and insulin shots with every meal he eats.



So, as a Mom of a young diabetic, I have joined with thousands of other Mothers who have made finding a cure their mission in life. The best way to discover a cure is to ensure that there continues to be adequate funding for research. In honor of Jack and the thousands of children living with Juvenile Diabetes, $10 of all sales of "Jack's Joy" pieces will go directly to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Through it all, Jack has been the sunshine, hope and joy for all of us - always finding the bright spot on the darkest of days with hardly a complaint, and never a fuss – teaching us all to find joy in the unexpected. Jack will always be my adorable, fun-loving, active little guy, and although our life might not be quite as carefree, it is simply perfect."

I love the message of the Jack's Joy collection - and I LOVE the beautiful jewelry that Cindy has created!  She is giving away a Jack's Joy necklace to this week's winner!

Also - TODAY ONLY (Monday, Nov. 21, 2011) - Cindy is offering 10% off all purchasesin her etsy shop!  Just click HERE and use the code  PRINCESSANDTHEPUMP!  What a wonderful idea for some special people (YOU?!?) on your Christmas list! 

The second and third items come from Tallygear!

Donna Annese is the creator of Tallygear! 

Donna says,

"In 2007, our daughter Tally (a.k.a. tallygear)  was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes (Type 1). Within 1 year she was using an insulin pump 24 hours a day. Tally is a very active child and the standard packs she used weren't right for her. Within a month, we realized we needed to design something that worked better for her lifestyle.




After many many months, and many yards of fabric and hundreds of belts tallygear was born in November 2008.  Although the Tallygear Tummietote belt was designed specifically for the comfortable storage of an insulin pump, we quickly realized the belt can be used for so much more. In fact, an insulin pump is the exact same size as a cellphone or portable music player.


Tally now carries her insulin pump, cellphone and usually gum, starbursts or skittles with her at all times - the Tummietote belt has 3 pockets.


Our wish to you or your child is to make wearing an insulin pump or any other personal item more comfortable and secure. We began with the the idea to create a product to make wearing an insulin pump more comfortable every single day. We think we've done that. We hope you enjoy the same freedom and peace of mind that we have.


For our daughter Tally, we wish that your life will always be full of sunshine."

Donna is giving away TWO incredible Tallygear products!
