We've all been there: long wait times for seating, overpriced flowers, poor service, luke-warm food. These are the caveats of a meal on a holiday. Knowing what's in store for you, let's plan ahead, and provide change for the better for all involved.

Plan:

Dinner - How about tonight or the day after Valentine's Day?

Flowers - https://lifeforachildusa.org/sparearose/give/

Ok, so a donation doesn't look "pretty". However, your intentions are in the right place, and I'm sure the would-be receiver of flowers can appreciate that. This Valentine's Day, let's all #sparearose with a donation to the link above. Life for a Child is an International Diabetes Federation program, with the vision:

NO CHILD SHOULD DIE OF DIABETES

Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition requiring daily insulin injections, blood glucose monitoring, education and specialist health care.

Access to this life saving treatment is often difficult, and sometimes impossible, to achieve in less-resourced countries. Without support, many young people die soon after being diagnosed. Those who survive develop complications, such as eye damage and kidney failure.

THIS IS WHERE LIFE FOR A CHILD STEPS IN:

We partner with diabetes centers in lower-income countries to provide young people with:

Insulin and syringes

Blood glucose monitoring equipment and test strips

Clinical care

HbA1c testing

Diabetes education, workshops, camps, resources

Support for health professionals

For each product sold February 1-14, 2017, on www.pumpcases.com, PumpCases will donate $1 to the #sparearose campaign.
