Shop to Stop Diabetes

I love purchasing gifts that benefit others, and that’s just what the American Diabetes Association’s Gift of Hope program is all about. Every year they open their an annual Holiday Gift catalog and fill it full of beautiful, giftable items. The proceeds from the sale of these items support the ADA’s mission to end diabetes. Currently, that entails funding research on preventing and managing diabetes with the ultimate goal of a cure.

As part of their prevention mission, they deliver services to communities that are high risk for both pre-diabetes and diabetes. They do this by provided information and education to people recently diagnosed, and they are a voice for those denied their right because of their disease.

The American Diabetes Association Gift of Hope Catalog debuted in 1971 as a holiday greeting card program put together by several Minneapolis-area parents of children with diabetes. It was their grass-roots way of doing something to fight the disease that affected their families. Since that time, the program has raised more than 26 million dollars and holiday greeting cards are still an integral part of the program with many of them designed by or dedicated to people with diabetes.
