As seen on their blog HOME page it states-
"The Blue Heel Society is an organization dedicated to all people living with, caring for, or interested in diabetes. The Blue Heel Society was formed on November 13th, the eve of World Diabetes Day, 2011 by a dedicated trio of spirited advocates who committed themselves to promoting awareness, pursuing the continued fight for a cure, highlighting obstacles people diagnosed with diabetes are faced with, and promoting advocacy for the diabetes community as a whole.
The Blue Heel Society accomplishes this NOT by raising funds, but by fueling our crusade with the strength, dedication, and passion of our partners.
Our Mission: Advocacy - Awareness - Encouragement - SupportThe mission of The Blue Heel Society is to deliver a clear, united voice via organized assembly within our own affiliation, and also at local and national gatherings, events, conventions, and other venues, helping to dispel myths, offer education and to champion the needs of people affected by diabetes.We choose to stand up, be seen, and be heard in our Blue Heels."
Here are my "Blue Heels"
"The Blue Heel symbolizes the pain & discomfort that cant be seen from the outside, for those living with Diabetes. Just like a fab heel..."
What an aweseme organization! I love reading their blog. I like at the top of the blog how it says :
"Type 1? Type 2? Whatever your "type", you can rock a blue heel"
I am "Type MOM"- and I am going to rock these blue heels! Unfortunately- or maybe fortunately- they are not uncomfortbale. In fact, they are quite the opposite. I love them! I could wear them everyday and never get tired of them. It's a good thing too, because as "Type MOM" I am always on the go!
Go out there and get yourself some blue heels. Be creative! Show support!
