Spare a Rose (save a child with diabetes)

Life for a Child believes that no child should die of diabetes. Its Spare a Rose campaign encourages people to buy at least one less rose for their loved ones on Valentine’s Day and instead donate the cost for a rose to give life to a child with diabetes by ensuring they get the insulin they need to survive.

Life for a Child uses these contributions from Spare a Rose fundraising to provide insulin, test kit supplies and education to young people with diabetes in need worldwide. Just one £5 donation can provide a month’s insulin supply, and the charity’s projects support over 23,000 people in 43 countries worldwide.
