Advent of Insulin

5 Dec

Advent1

It’s that time of year again…….

Bloody Christmas…..

When I was a boy (about 100 years ago), I used to have an advent calendar.

Nothing fancy.

Just a cardboard one.

Some kind of festive picture inside.

Snow – I bloody hate snow….

Carol Singers – I bloody hate singing….

Christmas Pudding – Now you’re talking!

It had 24 doors on it.

We seem to have added one these days for some reason.

I guess things change, don’t they?

The calendars have changed too.

Some now have chocolate in them.

I’ve even seen ones with whiskey in them.

Ones with beauty products in them.

A gift for every day in the build-up to the day of gifts it seems.

I have to admit, I was tempted to treat myself to the whiskey one.

Really tempted!!

Well, Lets face it, no amount of beauty products will fix this face.

I was so tempted that I went online,

Found the one I wanted,

Added it to my basket,

Hovered over “Check Out” ready to click.

After all, what would be better than a whiskey advent calendar….

Then I realised.

An Insulin one!

What if I could send an insulin advent calendar to a child with T1D that has no access to insulin?

Of course they don’t exist.

So, I did the next best thing.

I deleted my basket items.

I went to https://lfacinternational.org

I donated £25 to Life for a Child.

£1 for every day of advent.

I can’t send an insulin advent calendar, but I can make it an #AdventOfInsulin

Live Long and Bolus
