Happy Flowerless Valentine’s Day: Spare a Rose.

Today is the last day of the Spare A Rose campaign, and as of this morning, the diabetes community has raised $19821.34 from 604 donations. Our original goal was to raise $10,000, and we’ve almost met that goal twice over in the course of two weeks.  And it’s still early this Valentine’s Day – final totals will be compiled over the weekend and shared with us on Monday.  You can still donate!

We received a letter from the International Diabetes Foundation this morning, thanking us for our contributions:

I can’t find the words that properly express the love for and the pride in the diabetes community I have today.  Happy (flowerless) Valentine’s Day to each and every one of you, and thank you for your work as a team for the global diabetes community.  Together, we’ve made a difference.

  1. LOVE! Times a bazillion 🙂 The OCD person in me who likes even numbers is going to go in and donate again to see if I can get the numbers rounded up to something pretty. AND, surely we can hit $20k to make it at least double the goal, right???
