It’s that time of year again where you know the leaves are turning and everyone is getting ready for the coming holidays and time with loved-ones. This year, while you spend time out and about with family and friends we want you to know that we’re thankful for YOU and the support you helped us garner from Congress for the Special Diabetes Program.
Be sure to keep JDRF Advocacy efforts in mind, take a moment to act on behalf of the type 1 diabetes community by also thanking Congress for it’s support and sharing why you’re thankful for the SDP in the comments below!
As always, many of you already know that the JDRF Advocacy team is always looking for new and efficient ways to keep you engaged in T1D research effort. That said, here are a few ways you can help support the type 1 community by taking some quick actions or sharing them with others:
- Participate in our action-alert and send an email to your Members of Congress, thanking them for supporting the Special Diabetes Program, as noted above.
- Join a local in-person Promise meeting with your Member of Congress and share the importance of funding diabetes research.
- Ask family and friends to join the JDRF Advocacy mobile network by texting ACTION to 37420.
- Share the action-alert in #1 on your favorite social media site like Facebook or Twitter.
Don’t forget to share this blog and encourage other to make JDRF Advocacy part of their Holidays!
