Getting ready for World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange at our house!
The kids have been working hard. World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated every year on November 14. The day itself is celebrated on November 14, to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922.
I am happy to share my birthday with such an amazing man! Thank you, Lee Ann Thill (the creator of the World Diabetes Postcard Exchange)for all of your hard work in putting this wonderful project together.
It is an amazing way to unite people across the world to let them know that they are not alone in their struggles or their triumphs with Type I Diabetes.
You can click on the link below to learn more about how you can participate in the postcard exchange next year.
The blue circle you see used on each of the postcards is the international symbol of diabetes. The Postcard Exchange was created to promote healing through
Creativity, Connection, and Activism.
I am hoping to make it to Home Depot before Thursday to find a blue light bulb to replace our porch light!
