Gift of Hope catalog supports diabetes

Filed under: , , , , ,

I realize Halloween isn't even upon us, but if you're one of those organized early holiday shoppers consider the American Diabetes Association Gift of Hope. Every penny of profit from this gift catalog funds diabetes research. You're spending your money on a gift and research for a cure. Choose from over 30 holiday cards, a 2008 calendar and 40 gifts. Hmmm ... the Striped Barnstorm Frame caught my eye.

Gift of Hope has been around since 1971, when a group of Minneapolis-area parents of children with diabetes started selling holiday cards to raise money for diabetes research. Now under the American Diabetes Association (ADA) name, Gift of Hope has raised over $22 million to date.

If you're a budding artist, check out ADA Gift of Hope's 2008 Holiday Art Search. Artwork must be created by or dedicated to a person with diabetes. Winning entries are used to produce the holiday cards and gifts. Deadline is November 1, 2007.
