Giveaways are fun, but the entries received on this Pump Peelz Superhero gift card giveaway were truly awesome. From Sir Lancet-a-lot to Carbo-Man to Madame Betta, the superheroes created by insulin-infused imaginations are incredibly fun. And now, on to the winners!
The superhero call:
To enter the giveaway, you need to leave a comment on this post that includes a fictional diabetes superhero name and that superhero’s special power.
Through a fastidious screening process that included (but is not limited to) which entries made everyone in my house giggle and which ones the cats sniffed the computer screen longest for (<– this part is not true … perhaps), the entries have been narrowed down to three winners.
THIRD PLACE: “Agent Sticky”. Who happens to be able to scare any Dexcom sensor or infusion site into actually sticking on someone’s skin until they want it to come off, even if they go swimming. Or bump into doorways, as I’m prone to do when I cut a corner too hard. I’m picturing a cross between Agent K from MIB and Coulson from The Avengers. — submitted by Morgan T
SECOND PLACE: “My superhero is Queen Islets of Wonderhans, who can cross her arms and stomp her feet and create perfectly working cells that make insulin again. Why not!?” – submitted by Lucia Maya
And … FIRST PLACE! “My super hero would be Master No-No Carb. His super power would be to remove all carbs in your favorite foods by using a super high powered vacuum to suck the carbs out all while leaving the sweet goodness behind.” – submitted by Andrea
Our first winner will receive a $25 gift card, the second place winner gets a $10 gift card, and third place wins a $5 gift card. Winners, you’ll receive an email from me connecting you with Scott and Emily from Pump Peelz, and they’ll send along your gift card. Congratulations!!
