Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We aim to inspire those with diabetes and break stereotypes with positive attitudes. It's time to show the world who we are and what we look like. We are the faces of diabetes.
What is The Faces of Diabetes? We are a nonprofit dedicated to changing the way people view diabetes.
The Faces of Diabetes originated as an idea - a photo book filled with portraits and quotes from other people living with diabetes, that would help newly diagnosed diabetics and those dealing with diabetes burnout realize that diabetes is NOT a death sentence. This is still a work in progress with the first edition coming out in 2016.
This website was made to accompany the book. Those outside of our reach for the first edition of the book can submit their own photos and stories focusing on their lives, how life has been living with diabetes. Their stories will inspire and educate the world, showing what life as a diabetic is truly like.
The YouTube channel was created to show the lighter side of diabetes. We focus on funny videos, education in an easy to understand way. We produce comedic and satirical sketches that make fun of common and uncommon diabetes situations.
Other social media platforms are being utilized to show behind the scenes, extra stories, sketches, and outreach about the project to help as many people as possible.
We at The Faces of Diabetes believe there is comfort in numbers and by presenting people, stories, and comedy we can help break the negative stigma attached to diabetes and inspire others to live better lives.
