Wow! We made it - after six …
Wow! We made it - after six hard-fought weeks of the Revlon Love Is On Million Dollar Challenge, we’ve crossed the finish line. We’re SO proud of our 4th place finish - with a $50,000 prize from Revlon, we’ve raised over HALF A MILLION dollars for Type 1 diabetes! This was truly a community effort - 2200 individual donors supported 88 teams of T1D families + individuals to get us to this awesome achievement.
In the end, over 6 million dollars was raised by the 150 nonprofit organizations participating. That’s amazing! The Challenge fueled the fire for so many important, inspiring causes, encouraging communities to come together and give in huge amounts. It’s inspiring to think about the ripple effect this challenge will have - the money raised will make a positive impact in areas including breast cancer research, grieving children, mental health, eating disorders, and (of course) Type 1 diabetes!
A huge thank you to all of our captains, supporters and community members who ran this marathon with us over the past six weeks. Each and every donor to the campaign is listed on The Hot List - we are truly grateful to you all - and hope you’re feeling the love!
Every gift to the campaign will have a direct and immediate impact across the Type 1 community, allowing Beyond Type 1 to launch new programs (like our app, the Snail Mail Club, our global DKA awareness campaign) alongside issuing grants to the most promising education, advocacy, and cure research. We’ll also be attending the Challenge Awards Ceremony in NYC + have the opportunity to pitch Beyond Type 1 + Type 1 diabetes to the folks at Revlon.

Thank you!!

Dear Team Mia, Two weeks ag…
Dear Team Mia,

Two weeks ago, I sent an email asking for donations to beyondtype1.org in honor of Mia. In that short period of time, thanks to all of you, we have surpassed our goal of $5000. It leaves me nearly speechless when I look at the list of friends, family, and even some strangers, who have given to a cause that now means so much to us. The words "thank you" can't do justice what it really means to all of us who watch Mia fight every day.

Yesterday was Mia's two month anniversary of being diagnosed. She sent me a text asking me if I knew what day it was. I responded, "two months since you were diagnosed?" She responded, "Yes. 500 finger pricks, 250 shots - going strong". It is a disease that she must manage every day and think about almost constantly.

Your donation supports an organization that has developed an amazingly supportive community for all of those babies, kids, teens, and adults living with Type 1 Diabetes. In addition to developing an amazingly supportive online community, they fund research.

Yesterday was a HUGE day for all Type 1 diabetics. The FDA approved the first closed loop system of glucose monitoring that then delivers insulin. It is being called an artificial pancreas, and it will be available for use in the Spring of 2017.

It is still a device that needs to be attached to your body, and as any first generation device, it will have it's issues, but this is truly an amazing breakthrough.

I know this is a long note, but I just wanted to let you all know that your donations are truly coming at a time when the face of diabetes management is changing. If this artificial pancreas works, Mia can have a future that won't require 10 fingers pricks and 4+ shots a day.

Thank you for supporting Mia in this journey. The future looks bright, but the day to day is hard. Yet with so many of you in our corner, we know we aren't alone. Thank you!

Love,

Rebecca, John, Celia, MIA, Mary, and Johnny

Thank you for your donation to Beyondtype1.org in honor of Mia. I have tears in my eyes as I write this as I am overcome with gratitude. We didn't ask for this journey, but knowing we have so many people in our corner rooting for us means more than words can ever express.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
