President Jean Claude Mbanya from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) is calling the world via video to go BLUE for diabetes on the 14th of  November which is World Diabetes Day (WDD).  This day was created by IDF 20 years ago to bring awareness to the global epidemic of diabetes that is hitting our big blue marble.  Many of us don't just bring awareness on this day but all year round wear the blue circle pin that was created in 2006 to become the global symbol for diabetes.

To top it all off, Cherise Shockley from the Diabetes Social Media Advocacy (DSMA) and a few members of the D-OC (diabetic online community) have put together a fantastic video asking to not just wear blue on WDD - but for the month of November to wear blue EVERY Friday.  You can check out this great video at this link to get motivated to join in with us all!

The great thing for me? I love to wear blue!!!
