Remember to Spare a Rose… Don’t forget to Save a Child.

The Spare a Rose, Save a Life campaign is getting closer to its target every day. They’re $6,000 or so toward their goal of raising $10,000 by Valentine’s Day to provide life-giving insulin to children in need around the world.

The notion of the Spare a Rose, Save a Life campaign is simple: If your intent is to give a dozen roses to someone special this Valentine’s Day, why not give eleven and donate the cost of that 12th rose (about $5.00 USD) to the International Diabetes Federation’s Life for a Child campaign? Only $5.00… You can handle that, right? You might even be able to handle more than five bucks.

What does that money buy?
Five dollars provides life-giving insulin for a child in a developing country for an entire month.

Thirty dollars helps to keep a third world child with diabetes alive for six months.

Sixty dollars worth of insulin sustains life for a child with diabetes living in Haiti, Kenya, the Phillipines, and 40 other countries for an entire year.

There are just a few days left in the campaign, though you can give to Life for a Child anytime. Won’t you help? Let’s continue to show how special and giving the Diabetes Community is.

The need exists… Some have the means to help… And all of us have the ability to communicate. So join in the final push toward the goal for Spare a Rose, Save a Child.

Let’s go over that $10,000 number and revel in the lives that will be saved through your efforts.
