Spare a Rose, Save a Child

Spare a Rose, Save a Child!

Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching and we, the Diabetes Online Community, have an opportunity to use this occasion to help the International Diabetes Federation’s Life for a Child program.

The idea behind “Spare a Rose, Save a Child” is simple. Take the typical “dozen roses,” a gift that’s quite popular on Valentine’s Day, and save just one rose to spare the life of a child.  You buy one less rose this Valentine’s Day and share the value of that flower with a child with diabetes in the developing world. Your loved one at home still gets flowers and you both show some love to someone across the world who needs it.

The initiative was spearheaded by Kelly Close, Manny Hernandez, Bennet Dunlap, Adam Brown, Jeff Hitchcock, and Kerri Sparling, and it is supported by the good folks at Johnson & Johnson.

Share the love this Valentine’s Day. Spare a Rose, Save a Child!
