Zipper Pouch Giveaway for Diabetes Awareness

I've been thinking about holding another giveaway 
(but wasn't really sure what I wanted to make) 
and I wanted to do something to 
promote Diabetes Awareness, not necessarily a handmade thing,
 just something.

November is National Diabetes Month,

so in preparation, I'm holding this giveaway as my way to spread awareness of this disease.
I have someone in my life with diabetes, and it sucks. Plain and simple.

Did you know diabetes kills more Americans each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined?

Did you know recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050?

Did you know 1 in 4 who have it don’t know it?

  1. Bipolar disorder. I've been battling this illness for 17 years.

  2. It's tough to choose only one disease!! Diabetes, heart disease, cancer are my top three though.

  3. My nephew has hemophelia and I would like to bring more awareness to that!

  4. thanks for talking about this.....diabetes runs in my family.

  5. I have CVID (common variable immunodeficiency). It's not known by most people. Awareness would be amazing. Zebras are kind of the mascot, so something zebra themed.

  6. Leukemia if I can only pick one cause I have been diagnosed with it, as has my brother in law, and a good friend's son.
    But if I can pick more that one? oh my, all cancers, diabetes, mental illness, hepC,.....

  7. I would probably choose mental illness.

  8. I would like to bring awareness to MS

  9. Adult schizophrenia and extreme PTSD my other hasnt been the same in years slowly but surely shes getting better!!

  10. Depression and other mental illnesses. Especially anxiety.


  11. Fibromyalgia

    I have both Type 2 Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. So few people have any idea what fibro is unless someone they know has it.

  12. Huntington Disease I have worked with several women with this and it broke my heart.

  13. All diseases are dangerous not only one, but i think that mental diseases are the most dangerous because other people around them are also in danger not only sick person ;(

  14. Type I diabetes... my sister was diagnosed last year.

  15. Anxiety disorders! trisha

  16. I know first hand what diabetes can do

  17. Depression or anxiety attacks. I know it's really a hard battle to face. Emotions over any aspect.

  18. ALS. The ice bucket challenge was wonderful, but not that the trend has died out, research won't be funded as quickly.
