Of Continuing Interest

  1. Our Quilt for Life continues to grow, with 278 quilts online. You can now view quilts in the Online Gallery by quilt number, last name, and first name, to make it easier to find a quilt for someone you know. If you have not yet made a quilt square, please do so. We need hundreds more squares to really show the impact of type 1 diabetes. See the Quilt Submission Form for details.

  2. The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is seeking original artwork from kids for use in holiday cards. First prize is a $200 scholarship toward the CWD conference next year. See also Holiday Card Contest.

  3. You can once again purchase Children with Diabetes polo shirts and event-related t-shirts online at our CWD Shirt Store.

  4. The International Diabetes Youth Ambassadors are a group open to all young people worldwide who desire to make positive change in the lives of people with diabetes, as well as help find a cure for diabetes. Children With Diabetes offers us the unique opportunity to share information about how diabetes is handled around the world. While much of this information is already shared through the outstanding educational information offered on the Children With Diabetes site, this on-line group will give kids and teens a chance to communicate as a team. Our focus will be on educating each other and acting as a support network and inspiration for those kids who might want to get involved, but don't know where to start. Please write in, share your story, and "Join Us" in the ground breaking developement of this group!
