What is the Big Blue test? Let me tell you a little about a very important event for the diabetes community as a whole.
My good friends at the Diabetes Hands Foundation started the Big Blue Test a few years back as a way to raise money. The Big Blue Test grants awarded this year will benefit two US-based initiatives (each will receive US$10,000) and an additional US$15,000 will support a project in the Dominican Republic.
Here’s a outline of what the Big Blue Test is:
The Big Blue Test is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation that rallies communities to experience the impact that small changes can have on their health. Taking the Big Blue Test is easy: See their site for details.
Since 2010, over 40,000 people helped themselves while helping more than 10,000 others. Most participants in the Big Blue Test experience an average blood sugar drop of 20%. Each Big Blue Test helps you and helps others, through a life-saving donation made on your behalf. This has translated in $250,000 awarded by Diabetes Hands Foundation in Big Blue Test grants in the past 4 years. (some portions of this were copied from the Diabetes Hands Foundations Website)
Please help out this cause, as many times as you can. Post pictures online if you want, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or your favorite social media, just hashtag #bigbluetest. Thank you so much for the help and taking time to stop by my little blog.
