Spare A Rose - Life For A Child
What is Spare a Rose?
Initiated by a group of members from the Diabetes Online Community, the Spare a Rose campaign raises funds for Life for a Child. The first campaign took place in 2013 and every year since the community has come together to make a difference in the lives of children living with diabetes in under-resourced countries.
Spare a Rose attracts many smaller donations which, together equal thousands of dollars, showing the impact even the smallest donation can have.
What is Life for a Child?
In some under-resourced countries young people living with type 1 diabetes are unable to access life-saving insulin, blood glucose testing tools and diabetes education.
Life for a Child partners with diabetes centres in countries like Tanzania, Mexico and India to provide these critical supplies to young people who would otherwise have nowhere else to turn. The program currently supports over 23,000 young people in 43 countries.
Together, we can achieve our vision: no child should die of diabetes.
