A Rose by Any Other Name Should Smell Like Bandaids

When I heard the goal for our community’s Spare a Rose campaign I had doubts. That was silly. By coming together and making ‘Rose ours, we have exceeded an ambitious goal. 

I imagine in in addition to our house smelling of roses this Valentine’s Day, the home of a family, some where in need, smelling like insulin. like LIFE. 

Let’s dig in for a Valentine’s Day push. Let’s get do it again. We can. 

I am proud to be a part of the Spare A Rose Community, I'm doubling down to Spare Roses and Save Children. 

There is time left to Spare another Rose

One rose, one month of life. A dozen roses, a year of life for a child with diabetes.

Life for a Child


  1. Also proud of this community. Thanks for what you do, Bennet. Great DSMA Rents show last night and it was awesome to hear some say they hadn't heard, and were already participating. That local TV story you got was a nice touch, too, and hope it raised some more awareness about this in your community. Here's to meeting and reaching beyond the next goals!

  2. Your title wins the diabetes internet for the week! Loved it!
