Speaking up

I was at a silpada jewelry party this evening and noticed in the catalog, and on the order form, that they have partnered with JDRF to raise funds by donating part of the sales of their polishing cloths. So I spoke up and told the other ladies there that I have Type 1 diabetes, that tomorrow is World Diabetes Day, and wouldn’t it be great if they supported it.
I felt good about it, plus it sparked several conversations… about my insulin pump, about other people they new that had diabetes/insulin pumps.
My good diabetes deed for the day.
Looking forward to tomorrow. I don’t have any big plans, but if feels good to be a part of a World Wide Awareness raising event.

Great! Way to go!
