    Hey! I'm getting a bit of an early start getting ready for this year's Walk(It's in March:p:D) and I've been toying with the idea of an e-mail campaign for months. The general idea would be to modify a walk letter to put into the body of the e-mail and then get quotes and pictures from some of the kids/teens I know with diabetes and put them either at the bottom of the e-mail or in a YouTube video(yet to be decided. Mom's worried about safety, I'm worried about reaching the max amount of people:eek:), kind of as a 'These-are-the-faces-of-diabetes' thing. So I was wondering if ya'll would do this to help me out? If not, I totally understand, and I was thinking we'd just do first names, max. It's still in the very early planning phase, so it might not even happen, and the involvement of the other kids/teens is going to be strictly what they and/or their parents are comfortable with.
    Basically, I want the question of "what's the wost thing about diabetes/what do you hate the most/etc" answered.
    Thanks!

    Anna

    Sorry, I'm a little confused. Do you want us to answer the question, or send you pictures of D related things? In any case, I think this is an awesome idea, I hope you follow through with it! :)

    sorry! I wanted a picture of you and then the answer to the question. the idea was to put as many faces and emotions/thoughts to diabetes to make it more real for people who may not know anyone personally with D:cool:

    Okay, so I finally got permission from mom to do this. So I'm going to start working on it.
    What I think I'm going to do is take the picture and put current age and diagnosis age on it and then have the slide following to be the quote. Anyone who is willing to help, PM me with first name/picture/quote/ages. If you don't have a picture or quote right away, that's fine, just PM anyway so I can get a rough guesstimate on how many people I've got.
    Thanks!
