I’ve been approached recently by a number of companies that make diabetes-related products (bags for D-supplies, cases for pumps…) and charities to which one can donate in another’s name, as a gift, asking me to promote them as gift-giving options for PWD. At first I thought “very cool! I’ll let our members know about these gifting options!”. But then a colleague of mine raised the point that perhaps some of us would really NOT like to receive anything diabetes-related for the holidays. Maybe that’s the last thing some PWD want!
Would you like to receive a gift that relates to diabetes in some way? Would you like, as a gift, for someone to make a donation to an organization in your name? If you answer “yes” to either of these, what gift would you like to receive, or organization would you want your loved-one to donate to?
