Pin a Personality

The blue circle means nothing to some people. Help us change that!

We want the blue circle to become the universally recognized symbol of diabetes awareness.

Want to help? Then join our PIN A PERSONALITY campaign and get a personality in your area to wear the blue circle pin in support of diabetes awareness.

View the more than 500 personalities currently featured in our Online Gallery.

How to choose a pinable personality?

Your personality can be anyone who you think would profile our blue circle to a wider audience or contributes to IDF’s mission to promote diabetes care, prevention and a cure worldwide.

Your personality could be a local celebrity, a politician, a teacher, a chef, a local councilor or your gym instructor.

Upload the photo to the World Diabetes Day Facebook page or on Twitter using #WDDPin by November 14. Don’t forget to include a short description about your personality!
