We're still recovering from celebrating a JDRF Walk team fundraiser last week. Seemed like a great idea to have a drive-thru spaghetti dinner at my house. We thought maybe 60 people would place orders. Instead my wonderful neighbors turned out in force and we wound up serving 140 dinners. That's 280 meatballs!
It really was fun and it gave a big boost to our family team, just in time for the Charlotte JDRF Walk this Saturday.
I started this campaign to spread the word about type 1 diabetes and to gain some attention for the Charlotte Walk. Since the walk is almost here, Tweet or Feet is winding down.
As of today, #tweetorfeet has been seen by more than half a million people! Thanks to everyone for all of your mentions, RT's and new follows. In the past few days, we got some great high profile mentions from Bret Michaels and Sam Fuld.
The featured links last week were:
Can an insulin pump (or any medical device) be hacked?
Major League Baseball player Sam Fuld
College Scholarships for students with diabetes
Our last winner, for helping spread the word, is @M_Furr – a JDRF advocate from here in the Charlotte area. Mark wins a $30 gift certificate to Rotelli. Congrats!
Thanks again for supporting Tweet or Feet. I'll let you know what we're cooking up next.
(I know you're wondering - no, I didn't make anything for the spaghetti dinner. Slade wouldn't even let me boil the pasta! I was allowed to clean up, though. Thanks, hon.)
Silly girl. You don’t boil the pasta. You boil the water for the pasta. No wonder Slade didn’t want your help! (Reminds me of that Free to Be You and Me song about helping…) Wish we were in town–you know we would’ve bought a dinner (or two!) Congrats on the fundraising!
