Happy Monday, everyone!
As you all probably know by now, the illustrator of the site is my type 1 sister, Ana. She also writes posts from time to time but mostly she is super busy at James Madison University studying studio art and art education and taking an insane number of credits.
Ana needs our help for a diabetes related art project for school. She determines that she needs thousands of strips for this project. We are asking for donations of your used strips (don’t worry she’ll be working with gloves!)
Please, please, please start saving your strips and mail them to her by March 1st. Please include the amount of time that it took you to use the number of strips you are sending (a week, a month, etc).
This will be SO appreciated and can’t be done without your help. When you’re ready to mail email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you her mailing address.
Once Ana receives your strips we’ll be entering you into a running for a special prize that one lucky winner will get mailed to them :D
Thanks so much in advance! Hopefully Ana will get enough donations and will be able to do the project. I’ll be sure to post it when she’s done!
Ana’s project idea for this has been cancelled because we’ve realized that used strips are bio hazardous waste and it’s not a good idea to ask others to mail it in. In fact, mailing it in certain states is considered illegal SO Ana will be choosing another diabetes related idea for her art project, we’ll keep you posted on what it is! Thank you to everyone who was so kind and willing to help out! :D
