Have you ever felt like other people don’t truly get what it’s like to live with diabetes? The new “Walk With D” campaign is a chance for you to raise understanding of how it feels to have the condition.
Walk With D is based on the old saying that “you can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.” It aims to build bridges between people with and without diabetes and to encourage connections between peers. “Together,” the website says, “we can create a collage that shows people both in and outside of the diabetes community the reality of life with diabetes.”
To take part, simply use blog posts, photos, tweets, status updates, and videos posted on social media to share your story. Tagging your stories with the hashtag #WalkWithD will ensure it is collected on the Walk With D Tagboard.
