#GiveAllTheThings: ipSOX (Insulin Pump Sox).

UPDATED: This contest is closed! Congrats to:

Raving Robin is my favorite. Super cute!
I'd love Pouting Purple because it just looks happy & would make me smile when I looked at it, plus purple is my favorite color.
Raving Robin for me, but they are all cute - I'm not that picky {Editor's note: you're getting Pink Flowers.]
Raving Robin or Sweetheart :) they are both so adorable but even cuter than both of those is the penguin... :) {Editor's note: you're getting Sweetheart!]
Aly would love these [Edit'or's note: you didn't specify which one you wanted - so you're getting Luscious Lime.]

* * * * *

What you can win: One of five insulin pump "sox"; a stretchy cotton cover that provides protection and a little character to your external pancreas!

Made possible by: ipSOX, Ltd. (http://www.ipsox.co.uk/), and I'll ship to five winners.

Why you want this: I mean.

(This is how it fits on a Snap insulin pump.)

Why wouldn't you?

I really like the ipSOX origin story - you can find it here. If you don't feel like clicking over, that's cool - I'll just copy their description: Based in the U.K., "ipSOX Ltd sells and distributes funky covers for insulin pumps that are made of a cotton/Lycra mix so that [your] pump feels soft against skin. [They are] comfortable to wear and will protect the pump, and the pump covers are machine washable.

The pump covers come in a selection of vibrant colours and designs that can be matched to clothing and personal taste, and will stretch to fit any insulin pump."

You could also use this for your glucose meter or CGM receiver!

Rules: This contest ends tonight at midnight CST, and is open only to U.S. addresses. #GiveAllTheThings contests are intended for people with diabetes (or their caregivers) only. Since the Rafflecopter widget requires you to share an email address, I'll be emailing the winner (as well as announcing them through an update on this post) Tuesday morning - you'll need to respond to me by Thursday evening (let's say 7:00 pm CST) with your shipping address in order to claim your prize. If I don't hear from you, I'll pick a new winner.

Good luck!

Disclosure: ipSOX sent me five "sox" to give away, plus one to keep for myself.

  5. I like the ones with faces. Especially Sweetheart because she looks devious, but I also love the colour of the Luscious Lime.

  6. I'd go with the Ravin' Robin. Why? Because my insulin pump is my sidekick, and of course, I'm Batman. Something like that. :)
