#GiveAllTheThings: Awareness Necklaces.

UPDATE: This contest is now closed. Congratulations to the winner:

Corey @ Learning Patience: oohhh love the 1st one - pretty! I hate cupcakes. honestly. xoxo from Texas

Corey, please send me an email at textingmypancreas (at) gmail (dot) com telling me which necklace you'd like (though I'm guessing I already know...), and where you want it shipped to! :)

* * * * *

Product: Your choice between a Blue Cupcake (three styles to choose from) or World Diabetes Day sterling silver pendant necklace!



Made possible by: CARIA Jewelry / etsy.com/shop/CCARIA

Why you want this: I've enjoyed wearing the necklaces I bought from Cari last year (one of them is a different version of the WDD one shown here), and I think you'll love yours, too. You might remember me mentioning her WDD before, as she donated one towards the You Can Do This Project booth at the Friends For Life conference this past summer as a giveaway! Cari also donates the proceeds of her diabetes awareness jewelry to JDRF. She's a very giving lady. :)

Info on the WDD pendant: "Handmade sterling silver necklace with a blue mother of pearl circle wire wrapped in the center, symbolizing World Diabetes Day".

Info on the cupcake pendants: "Handmade light blue and white lampwork cupcake with a light blue swarovski crystal on top. This cupcake is dangling from a sterling silver chain. Why a cupcake for Diabetes awareness? Because it's the perfect size and treat for a diabetic."

To enter today's contest: Leave a comment below with the word "cupcake" somewhere in there! Your comment must be timestamped before 7:00pm CST tonight, and I'll update this post shortly after that with the name of today's winner. This contest is open to everyone; not just U.S residents! (But if you win and this needs to be shipped internationally, we can't guarantee it will arrive before the 25th.) Remember that Give All The Things! prizes are intended for people with diabetes and their caregivers.

Good luck!

  2. I loved the WDD necklace I got my mother for Christmas from Cari so much that I kept it for myself! I'd love to win a new one so I can give one to mom. I would even like to wear the Cupcake one :)

  8. My 7yr old daughter with type1 diabetes would love wearing the CUPCAKE necklace!! She will often ask if we can
    stop for a CUPCAKE from Gigi's Cupcakes as we pass by. I'm happy that I don't always have to say no. Thank you, Dr. Banting!:)

  12. We celebrated 20 years of T1D with chocolate, peanutbutter filled CUPCAKES. And the appropriate bolus of course (about 40 carbs worth). These are cool items.

  14. After diagnosis, I learned to bake low-carb and gluten-free desserts. I have made chocolate cupcakes with coconut flour that are only about 2g of carbs a piece! That's it! Cupcakes...what a funny symbol of the diabetes movement. Love it!

  30. I know maybe people like to think of the unicorn as the diabetes mascot, but for me it's a cupcake, all the way. Perfectly bolusing for a cupcake is a great feeling and is a skill that I strive to improve as often as possible...

    ReplyDelete
  31. I already have the purple flower "cupcake" pendent ( I HEART IT) so I'm not entering the contest.

    Great #GiveAllTheThings!!

    Seriously though, I kind of like the blue circle, but I'd be happy with a cupcake... or anything that resembles something sweet that I don't have to pump insulin for.
