Co-workers at my company are "hit up" for various worthy causes frequently, and it's hard to make diabetes a priority since it can be managed to the point of allowing a relatively "normal" life. Do you have any suggestions for separating this particular cause from all the others in order to garner donations?
Soliciting for individual good causes at work is usually a miserable task, which is why many bigger organisations have a single giving drive for the United Way. However, if you start in a small way by organising something that is fun for the families, such as a treasure hunt with a local bigwig presenting unusual prizes, a fancy dress walk or cross country skiing or a bike ride at so much a kilometer for diabetes, you may do surprisingly well. It takes a lot more work and imagination of course; but if it works it will grow and even become a local institution.
