Tallygear is awesome, and I’ve been a big fan for many years. After switching over to the Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor, I was so happy to see that Donna at Tallygear had created a case to protect the G4 (and have been using it daily since). And now she’s up and running with a lot of new cases for the Dexcom G4 unit, as well as some other colorful ways to dress up the otherwise drab world of diabetes devices.
Check out some of her new designs!
Donna was kind enough to send some samples to me, and I’d like to turn that favor around to you guys. But there’s a catch. I have three Tallygear “gift packs” (in quotation marks because there are things from Tallygear that I’m including, but I’m sending the packages myself, so there will be some additional surprises to be determined by how much cat hair I can collect from Loopy and Siah … just kidding … sort of …) to give away, but I want to couple this up with the recent, and important, discussions about diabetes stigma.
To win one the Tallygear giveaways, you’ll need to leave a comment here on this blog post or Tweet about this giveaway (see the Rafflecopter widget below), but not in the “promote me!” sort of way. Instead, I want you to answer this question:
“How will you help change the perception of diabetes today? #dstigma”
As a community, we can help change the face of diabetes, one moment at a time. Dealing with diabetes-related stigma isn’t something that can be “fixed” overnight, but every time we make diabetes visible in an accurate, educated way, we’re taking a bite out of stigma. Kind of like McGruff the Crime Dog. So let’s keep talking.
You can follow Donna from Tallygear on Twitter @Tallygear and on Facebook. The official Tallygear website, with a complete product listing and a catalog of colors to choose from, is at Tallygear.com. If you’re one of the winners, I’ll contact you for your mailing address (so be sure to leave a valid email).
And thanks for playing along. I’m excited to see the discussions that have cropped up about diabetes stigma, and I hope to contribute to them.
