I mentioned recently that I’m doing some part-time work with the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation’s Diabetes Diplomats program.

One really fun campaign that launched on Monday is “Be Part of the Cure“.  It’s a HUGE photo collage that will literally spell the word “CURE” and will hang within the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami.

Picture of the CURE BannerWith a minimum $10 donation, people can upload a photo or image, along with a paragraph talking about the picture, or how diabetes touches their lives.  At the website, you can zoom in and see all of the individual pictures, and if you click on a picture you can see details and read their story.

I donated yesterday and uploaded a picture.  My image landed inside the “U” (left hand side, inner edge).

I support the DRI because they are great folks doing great things.  [DRIF Disclosure]
