THE STORY:

In Honor of my 25 Year Diaversary, I decided I wanted to Celebrate this Occasion with a Positive + Uplifting Spirit!!

I found a Charity, Beyond Type 1, that has changed the energy of what it means to live with a chronic disease. The daily struggles of T1D are often endured silently, all of us living with this invisible disease make it look easy! People are often shocked when I tell them I have a chronic autoimmune disease, and must wear a life saving medical device (or 2) to keep me alive. Wow, right?! There is not 1 thing a Type 1 does in their daily life that doesn't effect the disease - eat, sleep, work, happy, sad, stress, exercise, get a cold, pregnancy(!!), hydrate, don't eat or don't sleep - everything has to be accounted for down to a mathematical equation of carbs and insulin ratios. So, PLEASE help me fundraise for a charity that empowers the T1D Community in a way I've never experienced before!

 {It's in the Flames that we Shine Brighter}

Beyond Type 1 provides a voice to us, our family members, friends, co-workers, local + international communities (and more!) who can share the reality of this disease and gain enlightment from other T1D Warriors. They also provide a profound sense of hope for A CURE! They have been chosen by Revlon to compete with other charities to potentially Win 1 MILLION Dollars!!!  

I've always wanted to offer a positive contribution from my T1D experience and this is my chance! Please Donate, Share + Help Us Win 1 MILLION Dollars from the Revlon Challenge!  

I am ALSO Fundraising for Beyond Type 1 by hosting a Ticketed Event at Woodbridge Uncorked {my Small Business/Wine Bar + Tap Room + Event Venue} on Saturday, October 22. All Ticket Sales, Donations & Silent Auction funds will be donated, as well as proceeds of all Wine + Beer Sales! Tickets will be Available at Uncorked in early October, and you can always email me at Katie.Uncorked@gmail.com. This Event is a Celebration of my 25 Years of Strength & in Honor of my brother, Nick, who lost his life too soon from DKA. I love that Beyond Type 1 raises money for specific personal causes, like Type 1 children going to sports camps, DKA Awareness in Schools, and many other programs that directly benefit the community. 

Cheers to Finding a Cure!I
