    I have one touch ultra meters coming out of my ears...LOL! We just switch over to the contour because I am so sick of coding and wasting test strips. Do you know of anywhere that will take them? Thank you!

    If they are used, I'm pretty certain they can not be donated due to potential of blood-borne contamination

    Contact Barbzzz here on the boards, meters are hard to get (and expensive) in Africa and a lot of people just go without. She made be able to take the used ones.

    One suggestion - www.dreamtrust.org will very happily take them and send them to India. We sponsor a child through them.
