I always wear ID to inform others of my medical condition which happens to so far just be diabetes.   I wrote back in August about picking up some silcone bracelets from a company based in Australia - which I'm wearing as I type this out to you.  Up until today, I didn't realise that there is also a company closer to home, here in North America called American Medical ID and has been around since the 90's.  It has created a new goal: Ten thousand Diabetes Medical IDs given away on November 14, aka World Diabetes Day (#WDD in Twitter)! 

Since November 1st, to help raise awareness and show support to the diabetes community (#DOC) during Diabetes Awareness Month, American Medical ID started giving away diabetes medical IDs to anyone in need. This absolutely **FREE** program has been a huge success and has delivered thousands of diabetes medical IDs to people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.


The good thing - when filling out the order form (very easy to do online) - many countries around the world are listed - not just the United States.  I was abit worried that it would be like some of the American companies I deal with for medical stuff - that they will not ship to Canada.  Also, this company doesn't only sell medical ID but other items related to health issues (e.g. stickers for allergic reactions).  I know I'll probably be back there again - buying something either for myself or my family/friends.

So, what is stopping you - click on this ** LINK ** and order up your bracelet before it's too late (they come in 2 sizes - either black or white as shown in the picture below). 

Remember, this ID bracelet could save your life or someone you care about one day!! Any ID is better then no ID in my humble opinion.
