Fall Fundraising Drive
- The Fall Fundraising Drive is underway. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to help ensure the continued operation of the world's largest independent diabetes web site. As of September 19, 1999, our Fall Fundraising Drive has raised $528. Thank you to everyone who has responded to our call for support. Please visit our secure on-line store to make a donation or purchase one of our shirts, hats, or our diabetes book.
