    Tonight, August 21st beginning at 8pm Eastern, we are staging a StripSafely Tweet-In, asking Congress to send aides to the upcoming Diabetes Technology Meeting on September 9th.

    Please join us and add your voice.

    We've made it easy. Simply go to the Let's Tweet page of StripSafely.com, find your state and click the link listed next to your senators and congressmen. We've already created the message -- you just need to tweet it out. (Don't forget the leadership at the top of the page -- we can all tweet to them!)

    Then, please, get creative and send additional positive messages to help the diabetes community build friends in Congress. Include the hash tag #StripSafely. Feel free to use this link to our letter in your tweets: http://www.stripsafely.com/?page_id=618

    Diabetes isn't partisan about whose life it impacts. We shouldn't be partisan in seeking support for our health.

    Thanks for joining the StripSafely community for the Tweet-In, when we asked elected U.S. officials to send aides to the September 9th Diabetes Technology Society meeting.

    During the one-hour event last Wednesday, your inspired Tweets reached approximately 370,000 Twitter timelines! One of those was the FDA's (@US_FDA) who received 1,800 unique messages on the need for accurate glucose test strips.

    In total, over 5 million twitter impressions were sent. We couldn't have done it without you! Thanks for making that happen and being a part of this campaign to keep all people with diabetes safe.

    If you missed it, don't fret! It's not too late to tweet your U.S. leaders in Congress about the September 9th meeting.

    Go to http://www.stripsafely.com/the-twitter-page and click on the links "Tweet About Meeting". The more tweets to congress about StripSafely, the more interest Congress will show to people with diabetes. It's a WIN-WIN!
