Her Dream Assignment.
As I've mentioned countless times before, I love the CWD forum folk. They are compassionate, kind, and always doing their best to raise awareness for diabetes.
I received an email from one of my friends at CWD this morning about Michelle Rago, a CWD mom who is aiming to make a difference using her camera ... and her heart.
Here are the details:
"One of the longtime CWD moms, Michelle Rago, has entered a contest - a photography contest. The winner wins $50,000 to photograph her proposed subjects. Her proposal is to document people with type 1, doing both type 1 type things and their favorite things.
In her words: 'I would like to photograph children with Type 1 diabetes doing two things: 1. testing their blood sugar or injecting insulin and 2. doing their favorite thing. I would like to exhibit the photos to raise awareness about Type 1 diabetes.'"
Right now, Michelle is No. 3 in the contest, behind by a good number of votes, but we can help her climb to the top! Voting goes from March 3 - April 3, so there's time to rally the diabetes community behind Michelle and help her win and raise awareness for a cause we all care so much about.
Go to the Name Your Dream Assignment site, register, and cast your vote for Michelle. A win for her is a win for diabetes advocacy!
