Giving TuDiabetes a handIf you're a regular reader of this blog, you've probably seen some references to TuDiabetes.com. Have you visited this awesome social networking site? It's an amazing resource for folks whose lives have been changed by diabetes. So if you have diabetes, any type of diabetes, or you have a family member or good friend with diabetes, this is an excellent place to join.
My good friend Manny Hernandez started TuDiabetes in March of last year, it now has almost 4,400 members. They support each other in various groups, sometimes get together at organized events and generally share information and help each other live better with diabetes.
If you understand the importance of work like this, now is a good time to support TuDiabetes and its work. Recently Manny started the Diabetes Hands Foundation and he's trying to put together a fund that will enable the foundation to work in a more direct way for folks with diabetes. If you can spare even $10, that would go a long way towards helping them reach their goal by the end of September.
While you're at TuDiabetes, check out their Word in Your Hand competition. They're looking for photographs of your hand with a single word on it that captures how you feel about diabetes. Check out the winners from last week, there's a lot of creative folks out there.
Then think about entering one of your own pictures in the competition. All of us with diabetes need a hand, and yours could be one of them.
