Make diabetes playful for kids

ON JULY 8

WE HAVE THE POWER TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE LIVES OF CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES

Jerry the Bear is a new best friend for children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Jerry empowers children with the skills they will need to master their medical procedures, while helping them cope with all of the scary aspects of diabetes.

Last Christmas, we shipped our first production run of Jerry the Bear and reached 2% of all newly diagnosed children with T1D in the U.S. Now, after 5 months, kids are still playing with Jerry for over an hour each week - monitoring his blood sugar levels, feeding him a healthy diet, and replaying his educational lessons.

This makes us ask the questions, what if we can get Jerry into the hands of 100% of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes? Can we make a profound difference in the life of every child diagnosed?

To make this happen, we are launching an Indiegogo campaign this July and we need your help. Join the Jerry the Bear team and the diabetes community to get a Jerry the Bear to all 12,000+ newly diagnosed children by signing up to this Thunderclap. Sign up with your Twitter and/or Facebook account and share the campaign with your network to do the same.
