The fourth annual Spare a Rose campaign starts today.
Spare a Rose helps fund IDF's Life for a Child program bringing insulin and support to children in developing nations who may otherwise go without. Spare a Rose is easy, give one less rose this valentine's day and donate the value of that rose to IDF or give a dozen.
Spare A Rose is a fun way we, people with diabetes, can join philanthropists, industry and other who support these kids.
Type 1 requires ongoing insulin. Through Spare a Rose you make an ongoing monthly gift to IDF. With the Monthly Donation section of the Spare A Rose giving form your can set ongoing giving. The funds flow straight from you, through PayPal, to IDF and kids in need.
Spare A Rose is a community effort. It is fun to be a part of something so useful, needed and simple. Now add to that the opportunity of publicly embarrassing your truly.
I would love to see Spare A Rose start quickly with ongoing donations. So I'll wear these Disney World map tights to the Friends for Life banquet this summer if we can raise three dozen ongoing gifts in the first three days of Spare A Rose.
Help kids and make me look silly in public at the same time. What could be better?
