#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The global day of action will rally people around the world to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities at the grassroots level. All Canadians are invited to join in demonstrating the power of kindness and generosity.
I Challenge Diabetes would like to invite you to join us in our cross Canada campaign to thank our health care heroes. We rely on our our diabetes health care teams, to navigate these unprecedented times, and to stay on track with our diabetes management. We all know doctors, nurses, social workers and dieticians who are going above and beyond to ensure we stay connected virtually , even while we are unable to attend clinical appointments.
To these clinicians who are such a huge part of our lives as diabetics, and to the myriad frontline and behind the scenes health care heroes, we say THANK YOU!
We put out the call to a couple of our artist friends in the diabetes community to help us come up with a fun and thoughtful way to share our message of thanks. We invite you to download one of our free, online colouring sheets, created by Ethan Gardner and Rebecca Redmond.
