Yeah, another giveaway.  But HELL YEAH because giveaways are awesome because they support the diabetes community, signal boost a small business, and provide something diabetes-nice to counteract the diabetes-crumbs that can bring you down.  A little lift is good.

Today, I’ve partnered with Rachael from Dia-Be-Tees for a fun t-shirt giveaway.  I found her store today after doing a search for “fun diabetes t-shirts” and finding this one:

This shirt is everything:  diabetes humor, word play, and involves a lesser-known-but-still-fluffy animal.  I’M FOR IT.

When I first found the shirt online, it was only available in kids’ sizes, but after sending a message to shop founder Rachael Price, she created an adult version.  And when we got to talking, and just like that there’s a giveaway on SixUntilMe and have I mentioned how much I love the Internet sometimes?  This is one of those times.

Rachael shared some of her diabetes story with me:

“As a type 1 diabetes survivor – 11 1/2 years! – a mom, teacher, and wife, I wanted to increase awareness and visibility of diabetes. So many people are ‘silent sufferers’ because this disease isn’t always obvious. I wanted to support my fellow survivors/fighters, and also contribute to JDRF. With every shirt sold, JDRF receives a donation. We need a cure, but until then, why not have some fun with our shirts and raise awareness at the same time? Please join our community and share the diabetes love!”
