What Can Donors Do?
Two weeks ago we published STATE OF THE CURE, a report that analyzes the progress made toward a Practical Cure in 2012. It has many interesting findings, and we encourage you to take the time to read it and become informed of what is going on in the diabetes charitable universe. However, we’ve received one overwhelming question from all the people who read the report.
What can I do to help?
Though there was a brief section towards the end of the report on how you could help bring about a Practical Cure, the sheer amount of response caused us to put together our new report, “WHAT CAN DONORS DO?”. This report is a short follow-up with more information on how you can take action in pushing for a Practical Cure. Importantly, the most effective thing you can do is also the simplest.
Stipulate Your Donation.
If you tell the charity where you want your money to go, they have to abide your wishes. To those of you who want to see a Practical Cure and have been giving to these charities, just attach our Stipulation Letter to to your donation ( one is included at the end of the WHAT CAN DONORS DO? report). It’s that easy, but every little bit helps. If all of our members stipulated 25 dollars towards a Practical Cure it’d be nearly 75,000 dollars, and we’re growing everyday. Every little bit counts, and moves us that much closer to the end goal.
If you stipulate, make sure you let us know. With a new website soon releasing, we’ll be creating ways to make this process even easier. We’ll also shortly have more options for how you can push to a Practical Cure apart from stipulating.
It’s time for things to change. We want a Practical Cure, and so do you. Now let’s do what it takes to achieve one.
Until Next Time
P.S.: We just released our newest survey on Donation Priorities. Please take it if you get the chance.
