This year, I’m raising funds for JDRF diabetes research. It’s something my family and I have done over the years as it’s raising funds for a cause near and dear to our heart. We’ll be doing the JDRF One Walk later this month, but the idea is to raise funds throughout the month of October.
On a personal note, I believe in donating to important causes that you care about. You won’t find me talking about fundraising and charity often, however, when it’s for diabetes research I will talk about it, and do my best to raise awareness, and encourage others to donate. As someone with type 1 diabetes, I’ve benefitted tremendously from research that has come before and lead to the innovations and technologies we have today to help manage the disease. It’s been just over 100 years since the discovery of insulin, and it’s easy to forget that until that point a diagnosis almost certainly meant an imminent death. Absolutely terrifying.
With that said, here’s the button you need to press. Not convinced? Try here, here, or here. They’ll all take you to the same place – our JDRF donation page. Anything you can spare for a good cause is worthwhile and always appreciated. There’s a double donation day coming up on the 19th October in case you’d like to maximise your impact and have your donation matched by another party. Up to you, but there are plenty of good ways to donate.
And I’m not just asking you to donate. I’ve donated, as has my company. I’ve also committed the company to donate a portion of Glucomate app sales to diabetes-related charities every year, and the JDRF One Walk can be one of the ways it’s achieved.
It’s probably not every day you can say you made such an impact on the world as contributing to life-changing research research. So what are you waiting for? Do it here.
