Helping save a child’s life who doesn’t have access to insulin has never been easier than right now.
Watch this two minute video I made that shares why I am so strongly in support of this incredible campaign.
Thanks to the Life for a Child campaign from the International Diabetes Federation, it’s never been simpler: buy one less rose this valentine’s day and donate the value of that flower to a child living with diabetes in a less-resourced country.
Quite literally, $5 will help provide the insulin a child needs for an entire MONTH! This is a huge deal.
The first campaign took place in 2013 and every year since, our community has come together to increasingly make a bigger and bigger difference in the lives of children living with diabetes in less-resourced countries.
Spare a Rose attracts many smaller donations which, together equal thousands of dollars, showing the impact even the smallest donation can have, and shows that the diabetes community takes care of one another, both online and off, around the world.
Please spread the word! YOU can help raise awareness for #SpareARose by blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, etc.

Living with type 1 diabetes can be challenging wherever you live, but in some countries lifesaving insulin, management tools and education are entirely unavailable.
Life for a Child partners with diabetes centers in these countries to supply young people with these vital components for life. We are working towards the vision: No Child Should Die of Diabetes.
The program commenced in 2000 and currently supports over 18,000 young people living with type 1 diabetes. In 20 of the 42 countries where they work, they have the resources to help EVERY diagnosed child.
With your support, they can achieve this in all 42 countries.
Love is a choice. Giving is a choice. Giving love, and in this case LIFE, is a choice. Join me in choosing to Spare a Rose this Valentine’s Day and spread love and life around the world. 🙂
