Here we go again! The Second Diabetes Podcast Week is coming up: February 6-10, 2017.
As I explained last year, I’ve participated in and enjoyed Diabetes Blog Week for a long time. After I started my podcast, it seemed like a natural fit to create #DPodcastWeek. Once again, we’re using our microphones to get some attention for a terrific charity, the Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign.
During the week of February 6, 2017, podcasters who sign up will include information about Spare a Rose in their shows and on their websites. They’ll ask listeners to learn more and to consider making a donation. All the episodes won’t be all about Spare a Rose; I’m encouraging the hosts to do their usual, great shows, just with this specific information included.
The idea behind Spare a Rose, Save a Child is simple: buy one less rose this Valentine’s Day and donate the value of that flower to children with diabetes. Donations go to Life for a Child, an International Diabetes Federation program which provides life-saving diabetes supplies, medication, and education that children in developing countries need to stay alive.
How can you help? If you’re a podcaster, please sign up by emailing me at DPodcastWeek@gmail.com. I’ll send you more details and make sure we’re all on the same page. Deadline to be part of the official list is January 20th.
It doesn’t matter what type of diabetes you talk about, whether you’ve just released your first recording or if you’re on episode 372 and top of the charts on iTunes. If you’re making internet radio, you focus on diabetes and you want to do good, please join us.
If you’re a listener, make sure you’re subscribed to your favorite diabetes podcasts and use the list below to sample a few more. If you’re reading this and thinking, “That’s nice, what’s a podcast?” click here for some help.
That’s it! Stay tuned for more on #DPodcastWeek, coming February 6, 2017.
