Spare a Rose Save a Child this Valentine's Day

What is Spare a Rose

Initiated by a group of members from the Diabetes Online Community, the Spare a Rose campaign raises funds for the IDF Life for a Child programme. The first campaign took place in 2013 and every year since, the community has come together to make a difference in the lives of children living with diabetes in less-resourced countries.

Spare a Rose attracts many smaller donations which, together, equal tens of thousands of dollars, showing the impact even the smallest donation can have.

Spare a Rose shows that the diabetes online community takes care of one another, both online and off, around the world.
