I get a surprising number of hits here from people searching the Web for “diabetes T-shirts.” I suppose if I were more enterprising, I’d sell them myself. Nah. My experience with retail is limited to the receiving end So instead I’m sharing a tip on two highly stylish looks that benefit the D-cause:
* For the active types, consider a cool cycling jersey from Team Type1, those incredible cyclists peddling to raise $1,000,000 for JDRF with their “Race Across America.” Organizers Phil Southerland and Joe Eldridge are energetic “juvenile diabetics” who met a few years ago as college students over their mutual love of competitive cycling. They are now working to establish Team Type1 as a full-fledged non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and a formula to fund those in need.
* New York-based Gina Capone of DiabetesTalkFest has a new style, to help fight the NY diabetes epidemic. Check out the “Save New York: Cure Diabetes” product line. 100% of the profit from these items will be donated to the Diabetes Research Institute in the interest of finding a cure.
Note that the DiabetesTalkFest online store has the most extensive collection of D-shirts around. Thanks both!
