You Can Do This Project - Updates.

I've got a couple of things to share with you guys.

First, last week marked the sixth giveaway from Hope Paige Medical to the You Can Do This Project community, which was originally supposed to wrap up the contest.

But wait!

Hope Paige Medical has graciously offered to continue the giveaways, in support of the YCDT Project community. Every other week for ten more weeks, you'll have a chance to win a free engraved medical ID from the six designs listed in my original giveaway post. Yay!

Starting with the giveaway that will happen next week, the contest is moving to www.youcandothisproject.com, so look for the reminder posts (every other Thursday) - and winner announcements (the following Fridays) - there. (When the project started, I didn't have the domain yet - and didn't want to change up the giveaway rules in the middle of the contest. This seems like a good place to transition.)

Speaking of which - last week's winner is...


Congratulations, Sue! Please send me an email at textingmypancreas@gmail.com (including your phone number), and I'll get you in contact with Hope Paige Medical to redeem your free medical ID.

And second, I got an email last week from Faith, who wanted to contribute to the You Can Do This Project in a different way. She already has a "store" established on Zazzle for her photography business, but has now added several items with the YCDT logo - you can find them by clicking here.



If you're wondering about where the money goes: Faith has set the prices to as low as Zazzle will allow, which includes a 10% royalty. Faith and I talked it over, and this 10% will be donated to the Diabetes Research Institute. It's a win-win!

I thought it was a cool idea - a way to carry a little reminder of the project around with you. A little mental pick-me-up when you need it, but can't watch a video. A reminder that you're never alone.
