4 Ways To Boost Diabetes Funding and Holiday Cheer
Posted Dec 05 2012 10:41am
'Tis the season to be jolly, and I can't think of an easier, faster way than by doing something for someone else. As my own financial planner, who's still dealing with the fall-out from Hurricane Sandy, said to me recently, life's not about money or possessions, it's about friends and family and who will take you in when you need it.
So I did a little investigation and saw there are four ways in which you might like to spread some holiday cheer and "take someone in" who has diabetes. These four worthy causes help fund diabetes research, put a smile on a child's face, let someone know you care about them, and are guaranteed to turn a little glow light on in your heart.
Santa and the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation have joined up. With a $15 donation, Santa will send a personalized letter to your child, niece, nephew, grandchild, or anyone you designate, anywhere in the world -- complete with a North Pole stamp! Santa will even congratulate your child for how well they've been taking care of their diabetes if you wish. You supply the letter's details. How can you lose? A child goes to bed happy and we all take a step closer to the cure. Deadline: Dec. 18 at midnight.
