Watch, Look, Listen and Learn

Please take a few minutes and watch these two video's.  
*make sure you turn the music player off at the bottom of the page before viewing the video's.

The first is a video about World Diabetes Day.  
This video was created for elementary school children to be shown on World Diabetes Day to create awareness in a simple, yet eye-catching and beautiful way. Emphasis in this video is placed on Type 1 diabetes as that is what Caleb is living with. Thanks for the International Diabetes Federation


The Second is a video that gives insulin to children in need with each view.

http://BigBlueTest.org is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF). It takes place every November 14 (World Diabetes Day. People with diabetes are invited to test their blood sugar at 2 pm (local time), do 14 minutes of activity, test again and share the results.

Nov. 14, 2010, DHF is aiming for a minimum of 100,000 views of its Big Blue Test promotional video. To help the foundation reach this goal, Roche Diabetes Care (makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services), has underwritten the production of this video and will make a donation for every view the video receives up to $75,000. DHF will use the donation to help the Life for a Child program, run by the International Diabetes Federation, and Insulin For Life. These two global, humanitarian organizations provide diabetes medication and supplies to children in the world's poorest countries.
