Where Awareness Meets Fashion: A WDD Giveaway with Lauren's Hope

TOMORROW is World Diabetes Day!

World Diabetes Day celebrated every year on November 14th.  It was created by the International Diabetes Federation.  You can read more about WDD and it's symbols and history HERE.

November is Diabetes Awareness month and I really like having a month set aside especially to advocate and educate about T1D.  Of course, to those of living with T1, EVERY day is a diabetes day and EVERY month is Diabetes Awareness Month! But it's nice to have an organized event, too!

Of course, what celebration is complete without some awesome BLING?!?  And the only thing better than jewelry is FREE JEWELRY!!

In my last post, I told you all about the incredible bracelets that Sweets and I got from Lauren's Hope!  I really feel strongly about her wearing her medical alert bracelet every day.  And I love that she is able do it with STYLE!

This is her CURRENT favorite bracelet!  (She pretty much likes every bracelet and necklace she sees in the catalog!)

And this is MY bracelet!  It's a caregiver id!  Want to know more?  Read THIS.

In honor of World Diabetes Day, I'm teaming up with the wonderful folks at Lauren's Hope to do something special.  We are giving away a $50 gift card to Lauren's Hope!

Just think of all the awesome you bling you can get with that!!!

Maybe you want a bracelet... Or want to try a necklace or dog tags... Maybe your child wants a silicone bracelet or maybe you want something for YOU!   Whatever you have your eye on.... it can be YOURS!

Want to know how to win this awesome prize?!?

  1. My 6 year old daughter! As hard as I try to not show any negative emotions about her having Type 1, she still has and shows way more strength than I do sometimes which fuels me to fight for her even more! Even if some day she gets tired of managing her Diabetes and feels like she just wants to give up I will show her the same strength that she has shown me and help her to find her way!
