November is American Diabetes Month. A time devoted to educating the nation about the impact that this disease has on those affected by it to focus attention on research, prevention, and treatment.
For the fourth year, we have joined with JDRF (the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to produce a special edition piece of glass. $5 from the sale of each piece will go to the JDRF. JDRF is a major charitable 501 organization dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research. JDRF's stated vision is "a world without type 1 diabetes."
The 2019 chosen Blenko form is a Cobalt handcrafted hanging suncatcher or holiday ornament that measures 4 inches in diameter. Each will vary slightly in shape and features a hand drilled hole for hanging. The reverse will be our etched Blenko name, logo and the year.
$5 from the sale of each piece will go to the regional JDRF in Cincinnati, Ohio
JDRF is leading the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D) by funding research, advocating for policies that accelerate access to new therapies, and providing a support network for millions of people around the world impacted by T1D.
