Very excited about the boost we got last week from Matthew Berry's followers and a RT from Jay Cutler! Trying to keep the momentum going for this week.
If you're new here, welcome! My 7-year old son has type 1 diabetes. He was diagnosed at 23 months and you can read more about our story by scrolling through the blog. Tweet or Feet is a way to spread the word about type 1, get some help for our family walk team, and give away some prizes, too.
This week's randomly chosen winner among those who've used the #tweetorfeet hashtag is @BaldingEagle5. He's another type 1 parent and you can watch their awesome family walk video here. This week's prize is a WBT gift package and a Twitter mention by CBS News Anchor Jeff Glor.
To enter, use the #TweetorFeet hashtag to help us spread the word about type 1 diabetes. RT'ing one of my posts featuring a link is the easiest way. I'm @staceysimms (nice to meet you).
Our links this week were:
The winner of last year's Amazing Race (who happens to have type 1).
JDRF Charlotte's Faces of Hope video, featuring local kids
JDRF National Walk video with Nick Jonas.
This week we also ordered our team shirts. Love the way the proof looks!
There's still time to join Benny's Brigade for the JDRF Charlotte Walk at Carowinds on April 21st. We'd love to have you! (just click here for more info). You can donate at that page as well, which would be wonderful.
Thanks so much again for all your support.
