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.
With 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).
You can also search photos by name, state, or keyword. It’s pretty cool! The first $25,000 in donations will be matched by Animas & LifeScan, so this is a big opportunity to double the help that your donation offers.
I support the DRI because they are great folks doing great things. [DRIF Disclosure]
