Spare a Rose, Save a Child is an online effort that raises money and awareness for IDF’s (International Diabetes Federation) Life for a Child program, which provides life-saving diabetes supplies to children in developing countries. There are plenty of ways to give here at home—-on this day—this is something that can help those who cannot. (as little as $5.00 will help)
Initiated by a group of members from the Diabetes Online Community in 2013, the idea behind this effort is simple: people are encouraged take the typical “dozen roses,” so popular on Valentine’s Day, and donate the value of one rose to spare the life of a child.
Feel good about Valentines Day—-because you made a difference. Really.
