I can hear you, loud and clear!  Here's a running list of the posts people are writing, which will be updated throughout the day:

I just wanted to stop by to say thank you for organizing this!

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for being such a support to so many of us. I was diagnosed 5 years ago at the age of 24 with T1 and have struggled to be "out" with my diabetes. So, to raise my voice today, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Laura, I'm 29 years old, and I have TI diabetes. In order to take charge, I've pledged to ride 45 miles in the Tour de Cure. Not sure how my butt will take it, but I'm doing it :) If anyone would like to donate, proceeds go to the ADA. Thanks again for helping me to make my voice a little bit stronger.


I decided to start Twittering. Now I just have to figure out how to add people. :|
And you can see my Raise Your Voice shirt in action here.

Thanks Kerri for getting this together. I emailed every contact through my local JDRF, bought shirts, and am blogging.

This community wouldn't be the same without you.

Thank you guys for everything that you do. We're a strong community because of every little thing we do to support one another, so THANK YOU for making the diabetes community something to be very proud of.

Mine is up....

oh my goodness, what a fantastic list. It's great that so many people are behind this :)

Hi Kerri & the rest of the "Raise your voice" crew--

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm sharing my voice at my blog as well. I'm not finished with it but plan to share the rest of my life with diabetes soon!

Peace, Love, & Insulin,
Erin :)

Thank you for organizing this day. I plan to participate next year as well…

Thank you for organizing this day Kerri. I was a little late to the party, but I yelled as loud as I could today to try to make up for it.

You can see my post at

Again, thanks. Writing this post made me realize why I must never stop yelling.

Hi Kerri, my 11 yr old daughter was dx in December 2006 (at age 10). I blog about our family's journey with type I along with whatever else is going on in our lives (single parent, three kids).

Thanks for these links.
