Spare a Rose SquareTagIt’s hard to believe, but Valentine’s Day is next week!  With that in mind, I have a question to ask you:

How much would you give to save the life of a child with diabetes?

What if I told you that for the cost of a single rose, you could give a child with diabetes a month of life-saving insulin through the International Diabetes Foundation program, Life for a Child and the SpareARose campaign.

A few years ago, the Diabetes Online Community in America started this initiative called Spare a Rose, Save a Child. The idea being to take the typical “dozen roses,” so popular on Valentine’s Day, and save just one rose to spare the life of a child.  

Lack of access to insulin is the most common cause of death for children with diabetes in many countries around the world. In fact, in some parts of the world, the estimated life expectancy of a child who has just developed diabetes could be less than a year. *

This Valentine’s Day, let’s help change that. Can you Spare a Rose and Save a Child with me?



The Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign is directed at raising awareness and funds for the Life for a Child program, which is an International Diabetes Federation program aiming to take “contributions from donors go to established diabetes centres enabling them to provide the ongoing clinical care and diabetes education these children need to stay alive.”
