Spare A Rose, Save A Child

posted by on 02/12/2013 | 169 comments (leave one of your own)

Valentine’s Day is for love and a small group of bloggers within the Diabetes Online Community came up with an idea to spread the l-o-v-e for people around the globe with diabetes. They wanted to help raise awareness for Life For A Child, which is an International Diabetes Federation program that is “carefully directed to key areas of diabetes care and management so that established pediatric diabetes centers and associations can provide the best possible care, given local circumstances, to all children and youth with diabetes in developing countries”.

Their idea was to take the typical “dozen roses,” ever so popular on Valentine’s Day, and save just one rose to spare the life of a child. Spare a Rose, Save a Child is simple:  buy one less rose this Valentine’s Day and share the value of that flower with a child with diabetes in the developing world.


From the IDF Website

Donations to the IDF Life for a Child Programme are carefully directed to key areas of diabetes care and management so that established paediatric diabetes centres and associations can provide the best possible care, given local circumstances, to all children and youth with diabetes in developing countries.

Just $1 a day provides a child with:

  • regular insulin
  • quality blood glucose monitoring equipment (meter, strips, lancets)
  • essential clinical care
  • up-to-date diabetes education materials
  • specialised diabetes training for medical staff

Head on over to Life For A Child between February 10-16 and make a donation here.

    I would like to show some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this challenge. After scouting throughout the world wide web and getting advice which are not productive, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive minus the solutions to the issues you have fixed as a result of your guideline is a critical case, and those that could have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t come across your blog. Your own personal capability and kindness in touching almost everything was valuable. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a point like this. I can also now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the expert and effective guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your web site to any person who needs to have support on this matter.
