One Touch

The fam gathered at Mom and Dad's last night to lend me a hand.

One Touch, a manufacturer of blood sugar monitors, has an interesting program going on. You write a word on your hand, one that describes how diabetes touches your life. Then you take a picture and upload it to diabeteshandprint.com In return, they donate $5 to diabetes-related charities.

After dinner we got out face-painting crayons and glitter and buttons and got busy. It was really fun. Lots of laughter and silliness, as you can see

Love the way you approached this with fun and honesty. Seems to be your family's trademark.

Love you!

we should do this. Kory's baby brother is type 1, and his dad is type 2.

Very cool.

Wow. Something about the images of the hands is very moving. Very personal.

Your Dad is giving me a tooth ache he's so sweet.

This is the most amazing photo journalist PR piece for Diabetes I have ever seen, the ADA should consider paying your family a little something too.
