What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?

If flowers are part of your plan, consider buying one less. It’s hard to believe, but that one small gesture could save a child’s life.



Lack of access to insulin is the most common cause of death for children with diabetes in many countries around the world. In fact, in some parts of the world, the estimated life expectancy of a child who has just developed diabetes could be less than a year.

We can help change that. Spare a Rose, Save a Child is a simple and powerful idea.  Buy one less rose this Valentine’s Day and use that money to donate to Life for a Child, an International Diabetes Federation program which provides life-saving diabetes supplies, medication and education.

You can still give your sweetie a big bunch of flowers and you’ll both show some love to children around the world who need it.
