November is National Diabetes Awareness Month and last Sunday, November 14th, was recognized as World Diabetes Day. A leading sleepwear company, Komar, has launched an initiative called "Pjs for the Cure" with the goal of raising $1 million dollars to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Before I get to the fun pj giveaway, here are some facts you may not know about juvenile diabetes and this great event:
Each year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
You cannot "catch" diabetes, nor has juvenile diabetes been linked directly to genetics or lifestyle.
Insulin does not cure diabetes, it only helps to keep the patient alive.
100% of every sale from PJs For The Cure will be donated directly to the JDRF to fund further research to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.
To win a set of women's, girl's, or boy's pj's, , please post one comment for as many of the following as you like. And please tell your friends, too!
