Untitled Giving Project Update#1

It's been 14 days since I wrote about my want to launch a charitable foundation to provide insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors to children that need but can not afford them. 14 days

A very lot can apparently happen in 14 days...

The Diabetes Online Community has fully embraced my goal and I thank you! Monetary gifts, offers to help and professionals wanting to donate their services have all been pouring in. I've made new connections and had conversations that can only be characterized as uplifting. I've received gifts great enough to pay for the initial paperwork filing and am currently in discussions with an attorney about how to best move forward. I won't stop you from leaving a gift today but I will say that, for the moment, we've reached out initial goal! Please take a moment and reflect on what an amazing place the DOC is, I'm proud to be even a small part of it and I hope you are as well.


  • If all goes well I'll be able to announce the name of the future charity very soon. 
  • Wonderful offers to guest post on Six Until Me and The Girl with the Portable Pancreas have helped get the word out.
  • I'm diligently working at acquiring corporate sponsorship for the charity, having already made my first pitch yesterday. (If your company is interested please reach out)
  • I'm currently crafting a mission statement and can not wait to be able to tell you more.


Thank you for being the amazing group of people that you are! Wait until you see what we do when we band together...

I'll be back with more news as soon as I can.

I am so excited for you! This is the very reason there is no other community like the diabetes online community. Let me know if there is any other way I can help!

Stacey, thank you for your support and enthusiasm! This will be a long journey but one that I'm anxious and excited to make. I can't wait to see where it takes me (all of us really). Best, Scott
