The Pin a Personality campaign was launched in 2012 to help the blue circle become the universally recognised symbol for diabetes awareness. The concept is simple: identify a personality or well-know individual in your community and get them to wear the blue circle pin to show their support for diabetes awareness. Take a picture and share it with us!
Over 400 individuals from all over the world have been pinned so far and are featured in our Pin a Personality Gallery .
Recent personalities pinned (pictured above) include the former Prime Minister of New Zealand and current Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Helen Clark, Lord Nigel Crisp, a Member of the House of Lords, and Dr Nick Banatvala, Senior Advisor to the Assistant Director General, Noncommunicable diseases and mental health, World Health Organisation.
