Oh, Cherise Shockley - the genius ideas you have! She brought us DSMA (Twitter chats! Live! Blog carnivals!) and Blue Fridays. Blue Fridays, you ask? What are those? From the Facebook page, which you should join:
Blue Fridays is an initiative to bring attention to World Diabetes Day, and to advocate and bring awareness for diabetes and the people living with it. Diabetes is more than a national issue; it's a world epidemic. This year, I want to rally the diabetes community to celebrate World Diabetes Day and Diabetes Awareness Month by asking people to wear blue every Friday during the Month of November and on World Diabetes Day (November 14). Please help spread the word and upload a picture of you or a loved one wearing blue.
This November, as stated in that little snippet, we were all invited to upload pictures of ourselves and/or our loved ones wearing blue on Fridays. I was psyched and managed to upload a pic for each one! (I even painted my nails blue!) What I didn't know was that doing so entered me into a prize drawing. And. I. Won. I never win! But I did this time, and it was a fantastic gift. I was SO excited about it, I managed to unwrap it to go through the goodies before I took a picture of the pretty giftbasket all done up. Still, these are the goodies I won:
