Onesie Warehouse and #TypeOnesie:
JDRF is absolutely delighted that Onesie Warehouse is our official partner for 2016’s event. Onesie Warehouse will be selling JDRF onesies in the build up to World Diabetes Day and generously donating £5 to JDRF for every JDRF onesie sold.
Buy your #TypeOnesie onesie today to support JDRF in its mission to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes and make a difference to people living with the condition across the UK.
JDRF is the world’s leading charitable funder of medical research into type 1 diabetes, a devastating and indiscriminate condition where the body’s own immune system attacks insulin-producing cells, which are vital to enable the body to turn glucose from food into energy.
JDRF funds research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes, and provides information to children, adults and parents living with the condition, at all stages from diagnosis and beyond.
Type 1 diabetes affects 400,000 people in the UK, with over 29,000 of them being children. There are 12 people who are diagnosed with type 1 in this country every day; that’s one person every two hours. It’s a chronic, life threatening condition which has a life-long impact on those diagnosed with it.
They will spend the rest of their lives enduring an estimated 2,200 finger-prick blood tests and 1,800 insulin injections every year, managing their condition 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without a break - just to stay alive. Even with gold standard management, people with type 1 still live with an increased risk of developing complications including heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and amputation.
Globally, JDRF has invested over £1 billion in funding critical, progressive research and will continue to invest this money into world-class research projects until a cure is found.
About World Diabetes Day and #TypeOnesie:
World Diabetes Day is marked each year on 14 November by huge numbers of people around the globe. In 2013, JDRF’s first #TypeOnesie campaign– where people were asked to wear a onesie for the day to raise awareness of type 1 and money for JDRF – was a great success, raising a fantastic £58,000.
This year, #TypeOnesie is back – and it’s set to be bigger and better than before. So why don't you be a #TypeOnesie for the day?
As well as wearing your onesie and fundraising on the day, #TypeOnesie supporters can spread the word on social media using the #TypeOnesie hashtag and encourage others to get involved.
