Creating Cyber Buzz for World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day is celebrated every year on November 14 (that’s today). The date was chosen because it marks the birthday of Canadian Sir Frederick G. Banting, who, along with Charles Best, is credited with the discovery of insulin in 1921.

World Diabetes Day is a global event. It brings together millions of people in more than 160 countries to raise awareness of diabetes, including children and adults living with and affected by diabetes, healthcare professionals, healthcare decision-makers and the media. World Diabetes Day unites the global diabetes community to produce a powerful voice for diabetes awareness.

Buzz Bishop is celebrating World Diabetes Day by helping to build a Diabetes Community online. In addition, his employer, 95Crave, is auctioning off some items on eBay to help raise money for Team Diabetes Canada. I think I’ll make a bid on the movies for a year package.

I’ll be celebrating World Diabetes day at the National Philanthropy Day Luncheon. Yes, it’s also National Philanthropy Day as well. Today is not a day to think about us. It’s a day to think about them and what you can do to make this world a better place. What are you doing to celebrate World Diabetes and National Philanthropy Day?

        John doesn’t just write about making money on the internet. He writes about loads of random stuff…like the dinner he ate last night etc. He is one random man but everyone loves him
