A small group of diabetes advocates – Kelly Close, Manny Hernandez, Bennet Dunlap, Adam Brown, Kerri Sparling, and Jeff Hitchcock – with the support of some friends at Johnson & Johnson, got together recently to see how the diabetes community could use social media for social good, and here's the great idea that came out of that meeting:
Want to help spread the word? Here's what you can do:
- This week, February 10 - 16, spread the word through your blog, Facebook, Twitter (use the hashtag #sparearose), Google+, Tumblr, or your menagerie of carrier pigeons about the "Spare a Rose, Save a Child" idea, which will also help raise awareness of the Life for a Child program. (And if you do post about this effort, please leave a comment on Kerri's blog post so that everything can be kept track of.)
- If you're so inclined, download one of these images to use in your post, on your site, as your social media avatar, whatevs, during this week: Banner 1, Banner 2, Banner 3.
- Please use the URL: http://bit.ly/SpareRoseSaveChild to link to the IDF site. (This is a short URL created to see how much impact our social media campaign has generated.) For more information on the Life for a Child program, please check out that link.
Let's help spread the love offline to those in our diabetes community that most need it.
