Several in the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) including Kerri Sparling, Kelly Close, Manny Hernandez, Bennet Dunlap, Adam Brown and Jeff Hitchcock have joined up with Johnson & Johnson to help raise funds for Life for a Child , the International Diabetes Federation's humanitarian program that gets life-saving supplies, education and care to children in need in developing nations.
The initiative is called "Spare a Rose, Save a Child" and here's how it works. Instead of buying a dozen roses this Valentine's Day for your amour, buy 11 roses and take the savings from that one rose and contribute it to IDF. Kind of a win-win-win. Your loved one gets a beautiful bouquet of roses, a child gets help to live and you get the joy of giving twice.
The program is occurring all this week from February 10-16th. Just make your donation here . In the spirit of Valentine's Day, spare a rose, save a child and share the extra love you'll feel with the lucky one who already has your heart.
