I’ve been a fan of Pump Peelz for several years, impressed by both their products and their back story. The company, founded in 2011 by high school sweethearts turned married couple Scott and Emily, aims to “help people with diabetes live with more confidence by turning insecurities associated with diabetic accessories into a form of individual self-expression.”
Can’t argue with that, as the team at Pump Peelz is helping shift our one-size fits all, sometime very drab diabetes devices into personalized and fashionable conversation pieces. (Because wouldn’t you rather be asked where you got your Dexcom sticker than “Hey, what’s your blood sugar?”)
The Pump Peelz team has offered some skinz as a giveaway here on Six Until Me, which I am very excited about because the cost to enter is minimal, but fun. Here are the details:
To enter this giveaway, you need to create a diabetes-related haiku (a poem with three lines, the first containing five syllables, the second line containing seven syllables, and the third line back to five syllables) and share it in the comments section or on Twitter (make sure you tag me with @sixuntilme in your Tweet). Winners will be chosen from a hat by my kid (because I’m low-tech, but trust me, we have a cool hat) and will receive a prize pack from the kind people at Pump Peelz.
I love adding a little flair to the sometimes mind-numbing plainness of diabetes technology. Here are a few examples of the work they do at Pump Peelz:
For the Dexcom G4 receiver
A skin for your Omnipod
And if you’re a Pebble watch user, they’ll throw in one a decorative skin for your Pebble, too!
Once the three winners are selected, I’ll announce those here on SUM on Thursday morning. The contest is open starting today and will close tomorrow night at midnight EST. The winners will connect with Scott for their peelz, and for anyone who doesn’t happen to win, 15% off is available to readers using the coupon code “SixUntilMe”.
For more information on the company, you can check out their website or “like” them on Facebook. (Is it required to put like into quotation marks?”) And if you’re interested in winning some peelz of your own, be sure to enter the giveaway. Huge thanks to Pump Peelz for making this giveaway possible, and I am excited to meet them in person at Friends for Life in a few weeks.
Poems don’t have to rhyme.
But if you count syllables,
You might win fun shit.
