Etsy Angels and American Diabetes Association

♥ Join the Etsy Angel's Street Team the entire month of September as we raise money for the American Diabetes Association. Your purchase from any of the shops listed below will help us donate to this wonderful organization that has been helping people for over 60 years.

♥ The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fighting for those affected by diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. For more information please call the American Diabetes Association at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383) or visit www.diabetes.org.

* "For more than 60 years, friends like you and the American Diabetes Association have made great progress in the fight against diabetes. Together, we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the 20.8 million children and adults in the US who suffer from this life-threatening disease. The generosity of our donors is vital as we continue our efforts to search for a cure, help people with diabetes, and invest in the health of future generations."

* "There are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population, who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they have the disease. "

Below are some signs and symptoms of diabetes, if you have one or more of these symptoms please see your Doctor right away.

* Frequent urination
* Excessive thirst
* Extreme hunger
* Unusual weight loss
* Increased fatigue
* Irritability
* Blurry vision

♥ You can prevent Type 2 Diabetes by eating healthy, being active, lowering your BMI and losing weight. For more information on Diabetes and for info on the American Diabetes Association please visit their website. http://www.diabetes.org/

♥ The Etsy Angels are a Self-Representing Team of Artisans that create a variety of unique handmade items including Artisan Jewelry, Lampwork Glass and Polymer Clay Beads, Bath and Body Products, Quilts, Knits and Plush, and Paper Products to name a few.


♥ Our Team was formed after the many hours spent together promoting for Dawn’s Boys; an effort that began in late December 2007 after a Jewelry artist who was on both Etsy and Ebay lost her life in an automobile accident. She left behind two little boys. Several "Angels" came together to help. After spending countless hours promoting donations from more people than we could imagine that wanted to help, many friendships were made. We couldn’t imagine it all ending without creating a Team for Dawn’s Angels. ♥
