I’m taking a departure from a “traditional” blog post today to tell you, my dear readers, that you should consider celebrating a special holiday with me today: National Selfie Day! Before you roll your eyes at the mere idea of that, please keep reading to learn how participating will help support students with diabetes.
Dexcom has partnered with a nonprofit that is very important to me – The College Diabetes Network (CDN) – to help put some focus on the diabetes community and raise money. They’ve created the #SensorSelfie social media campaign to encourage people with diabetes to take photos of themselves proudly donning their Dexcom sensors.
But what exactly do you need to do in order to take part in the campaign? There’s four simple steps to follow today, June 21st:
- Take a picture showing off your Dexcom sensor
- Post the photo to your Facebook and Instagram pages
- Use the hashtag #SensorSelfie and tag @Dexcom
- Tell ALLLLLL your diabuddies to do the same
For every post that uses #SensorSelfie today, Dexcom will donate $1 to CDN. Can you imagine how much money could be raised if you got all the T1Ds you know to participate?
