Wherever you are or whatever you're doing, just add a little touch of blue in honour of UN World Diabetes Day on November 14th. Perhaps a blue photo on your blog or a new blue header for the day - blue backgrounds - World Diabetes Day buttons and sidebar items! - get virtual candle here. (I've added a few of my blue lovelies to this exquisite tea service I just bought at the Huntsville Salvation Army for $10.) And as you can see, my blog will be blue! Almost 600 million people worldwide have diabetes so I believe this special day of awareness is very important to all of us, don't you?
The total number of monuments that have confirmed participation in this year's World Diabetes Day and agreed to go blue grows by the minute. Recent additions to the list include the Sydney Opera House in Australia and Place de la Concorde in Paris, France. Early indications suggest that the global total will exceed 1000. Help us share your World Diabetes Day experience. Whatever you are doing this World Diabetes Day, please make sure that your experience is shared with the global diabetes community.
