Want To Help People in Ukraine? Donate Extra Diabetes Supplies

Want To Help People in Ukraine? Donate Extra Diabetes Supplies

People living with diabetes face unique challenges during times of crisis. Diabetics need their medicine and supplies every day. Its not an option. But you can’t hop down to the pharmacy in a war zone or if you are fleeing to safety with only what you can carry.

The American Diabetes Association is a founding member of the Diabetes Disaster Response Coalition (DDRC). With help from our partners, they’ve developed processes and tools for crisis response. DDRC is now leveraging these resources to support our international colleagues.

You Can Help with Supplies or Funds

If you have unexpired and unopened diabetes supplies including in-date and unneeded insulin, test strips, meters, and other diabetes supplies, you can donate to Insulin For Life USA and these life-saving supplies will be distributed, free of charge, to international organizations serving Ukraine and surrounding countries. For details on donation items that can be donated, please view resources below: 

Insulin For Life USA IFL USA is fully licensed by the State of Florida to both receive and distribute medications for this purpose. All donations to the organization are tax-deductible in accordance with regulations.

Provide A Week Of Alzheimer’s Care

Provide A Week Of Alzheimer’s Care

I’ve written before about the excellent work done by the GreaterGood organization. Lately in addition to their ongoing click-based fundraisers, they have been holding special topic fundraisers a week at a time. This week is for Aged Care Employees Day.


Provide A Week Of Alzheimer’s Care through Your contribution at Greater Good

from the GreaterGood website, “Alzheimer’s disease is tough on both patients and caregivers, and the condition continues to worsen overtime. Providing socially, mentally, and physically enriched activities is good for Alzheimer’s patients and for caregivers, but can be outside a family’s means. Click today to give an Alzheimer’s patient a full week of care.”   Read more 

Thank you veterans! Here’s a way to help homeless vets and their pets

Thank you veterans! Here’s a way to help homeless vets and their pets

The Greater Good network reports that over 1/2 million are homeless in the United States. 15% of these homeless are our Veteran’s. To many people – homeless our not – pets are our truest friends.  Unfortunately, homesless shelters rarely accomodate animals – keeping homeless veteran’s with pets out of shelters that provide safety, shelter and nurishment.

GreaterGood.org is working to change this. Their program Safe Haven in Philadelphia will be the first housing in the city for homeless vets that accomodates pets. You can help simply by clicking on the link at greatergood.org/project

Or donate directly to the program. Help keep our veterans and their pets stay out of the cold.

 

Gardeners Supply Pledges Food for Hungry Americans

Gardeners Supply Pledges Food for Hungry Americans

It’s nice to see companies following through with company ideals. Gardeners Supply https://www.gardeners.com not only sells everything a gardener might need, they also believe in giving back to the community through a variety of good works.  They donate 8 percent of profits to programs that use gardening for good. They also have turned a piece of land that had been treated as a dumping ground and created a garden that produces 500,00 pounds of produce annually.  They’ve pledged to donate food from their farm to help feed hungry Americans. And they are challenging gardeners everywhere to join them by donating their extra produce to food banks etc. through their #gardentogive project.
