Dancing For Diabetes

Scott Benner

I'm proud to introduce Dancing for Diabetes as the newest sponsor of the Juicebox Podcast and I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to tell you about this amazing diabetes charity. 


Dancing for Diabetes has been spreading awareness through the art of dance to better educate the community, raise funds to find a cure, and inspire those with diabetes to live healthy and active lives for the past 18 years and will continue to do so until a cure is found! 

Dancing for Diabetes - 17532.jpg

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 10 years old in 1999, Elizabeth Forrest was determined to not let diabetes negatively impact her life. As a direct result, Elizabeth created nonprofit organization, “Dancing for Diabetes.”

As a student in a middle school dance program in Sanford, Florida, Elizabeth was inspired to host a show to raise funds but more importantly, spread awareness. What started as a small neighborhood event quickly transformed into a large annual production and then further into a year round 501c3 nonprofit organization. In the fall of 2018, Dancing for Diabetes will produce its 18th annual show.

Year round, Dancing for Diabetes provides free dance class for kids and teens with type 1 diabetes, hosts several outreach events and programs for kids, teens and adults, and produces Touched by Type 1 – an educational and empowering conference in Orlando, Florida.

100 Campaign

Scott Benner

Earlier this year I traveled to the Dominican Republic to speak to a group of D-Parents. After I arrived on the island I meet countless people who live with inadequate - beyond description - access to diabetes supplies. 

Then I met the people who were there to help them - a wonderful group of people who were trying to change the world and I promised one of them that I would come home and tell you about the 100 Campaign. So in the spirit of helping me to keep my promise, please read on.

from 100Campaign.org

The mission of the 100 Campaign is to ensure that 100% of people living with Type 1 diabetes have access to insulin by 2022

Founded in 2012, the 100 Campaign is a global movement committed to tearing down the barriers to access to insulin for all that need it. Disheartened by the lack of global action towards access to insulin, a small team of advocates with experience in diabetes communities in resource poor settings came together to launch the 100 Campaign, with the support of the International Insulin Foundation (IIF).

We are committed to providing resources that move forward the goal of insulin access by 2022. Please contact us if there are specific needs your diabetes community might need.

The 100 Campaign chooses not to receive any funding from the Pharmaceutical industry. Currently the 100 Campaign is not accepting any monetary donations from individuals. Individuals or companies wishing to support the 100 Campaign can do so in-kind. We would also welcome invitation from grant-making organizations. For further information please contact us directly.

I hope you can take a moment to go to their site and find out more about this noble cause.

Diabetes Community: News and Events

Scott Benner

ddiabetesartday600px.jpg

from diabetesartday.com - Diabetes Art Day is a web-based initiative for the Diabetes Online Community to “tell a story” about life with diabetes though creative visual expression. It’s a way for us to tell our stories so we can connect and share with each other and with our loved ones. It’s a way to generate diabetes awareness outside of the DOC by sharing artwork on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and community websites.

I want to strongly encourage you to check out Diabetes Art Day which happens on February 3, 2014.


Rose.jpg

from Spare a Rose: 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 our community can help change that. Through the Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign, we raise awareness and donations for Life for a Child, an International Diabetes Federation program which provides life-saving diabetes supplies, medication, and education that children in developing countries need to stay alive.Spare a Rose, Save a Child is simple: buy one less rose this Valentine’s Day and donate the value of that flower to children with diabetes. Your loved one at home still gets flowers and you both show some love to children around the world who need it.One rose, one month of life. A dozen roses, a year of life for a child with diabetes. Find out how you can help.
