SPARE A ROSE / Save a Child

Please join us in giving to the Spare a Rose Save a Child campaign at

Around the world, lack of access to insulin is the most common cause of death for many children with diabetes. 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. *

This Valentine’s Day our community can help change that. $5, the price of one rose, is one month of insulin. One rose, one month of life. A dozen roses, a year of life.

Through the Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign, we raise awareness and donations for 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.

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. Your loved one at home still gets flowers and you both show some love to children around the world who need it.

We’re hopeful that you will join us in embracing this cause again this year.
