Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Looking for a way to make an impact in the diabetes world but unsure of how to make your mark? Then you may be interested in the “Wall of Change.”

The “Wall of Change” is a fund-raising initiative established by Pump Wear, Inc., a company that offers “fashionable fun alternatives on how to wear the pump,” such as patterned pump pouches and insulated bags. To participate, just form the number of years you have had diabetes using your loose change, then take a picture and send it to pumpwear@nycap.rr.com. Pump Wear, Inc., will display the photo on their “Wall of Change.”

Once the photo is snapped, take the money you used and send it to the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes, at the following address:

Diabetes Research Institute Foundation
Wall of Change/Diabetes Diplomats
200 South Park Road, Suite 100
Hollywood, Florida 33021
