How do you all like my new logo? I personally love it! :)
Blog week was awesome although it feels weird today to write without a prompt....
This past weekend I went to a JDRF Gala that was actually put on by my parents friends at their house! They put the whole thing together in four weeks. It really showed me that we each can put something amazing together and we all can do something to help. A lot of amazing companies donated auction items and overall it was a success.
I found myself mostly talking to the volunteers because they tend to be the people who are actually affected by diabetes. I spoke to one mother of a T1 and she was so amazing. Her son just turned 18 and she was scared about him going off to college. I got to tell her my stories and she told me hers. It truly was the highlight of the night for me.
Half way through the event I realized I didn't take any pictures for you guys! So I snapped a few ugly photos with my phone...but I hope you can get the idea!
It really has inspired me and now my brain is turning and thinking about how I could put one together as well...
Does anyone have any tips for me for a successful fundraiser? Maybe I could do it around my JDRF Walk and raise the money for my team? Has anyone else ever done one before?
