Get Your Diabetes Circle Shoe Laces Here

Scott Benner

So like I explained the other day my lovely wife Kelly works for Novo Nordisk, the company who started the hashtag #LaceUp4Diabetes and the festive diabetes circle shoe laces that accompany it. 

I was contacted - separate of my wife's employment - by Novo's marketing company about receiving a few pairs of the laces for Arden's Day, I accepted the laces so I could run a giveaway and give you guys a chance to get a pair.

A few days later Kelly mentioned the giveaway to some people that she works with. It turned out that the marketing folks at Novo had very little idea of how popular the laces were in the diabetes community. Soon, word of the laces popularity made it's way around the office and the next thing I knew... Kelly was in our kitchen holding well over 150 pairs of laces - given to us by her co-workers.

And they want you to have them!

Here's what I've figured out. My family is responsible for the shipping cost, which would be prohibitive for us. With that in mind...

If you would like a pair of laces - All I need you to do is fill out the form below and hang on for a few days until all of the laces are spoken for. That might end up meaning that over 150 people get one pair or any number of possibilities - depending on who wants them and how many they hope to get. Hope that makes sense.

After all of you have requested laces, I will send a Paypal request for the shipping costs. At this moment it looks like it will cost (for U.S. residents) $2.50 for the first pair and $1.00 for each additional pair. Those outside of the U.S. are eligible, as long as you are willing to cover the shipping. If there is any money left over after shipping is completed it will be donated to the JDRF.

These laces will not effect the direction of the laces giveaway that began before the generosity of Kelly's co-workers came to light. Everyone is still very welcome to enter that giveaway which also includes signed books and runs until the end of November.

Blue laces

I ran out of shoe laces... hope those who received are loving them!
