Help a Diabetic. Donate Diabetes Supplies.
Donate Diabetes Supplies
There are many Diabetics in the United States without Medical insurance. Think about how much Diabetic Supplies cost. There is Insulin, Glucometers, Test strips, Ketone strips, Syringes, Insulin pumps, Reservoirs, Infusion sets, Tapes, Wipes, etc. This doesn't even include the cost of Doctors & tests. Diabetes is not a cheap disease!!! Just to give you some idea of how much these supplies cost. A bottle of Novolog Insulin sells at Target Pharmacy for $60.39. Some diabetics use 2 or more vials a month. A box of 100 One touch Ultra test strips sells for $84.99 at Target Pharmacy. These were the cheapest prices I could find. Insulin pump supplies are very expensive as well. A box of 12 infusion sets costs about $130.00.
So I thought it would be incredible if some of us with extra supplies could share them with those that need them. If you have extra supplies that you would like to share with others you can notify me by emailing me at Kimberly Advent
If you are someone who is in need of supplies then please email me Kimberly Advent. Tell me what supplies you need the most. I will start a list of what is needed.
If you don't have extra supplies to donate but, would still like to help I will also take donations of money. I can then buy the supplies that are needed. All donations are appreciated!!!
I am not a Non profit organization. I am just one person trying to help diabetics that can not afford supplies. I can not give you a receipt for your taxes. Unfortunately only a Non profit can do that.
At this time I am no longer able to pay out of pocket for postage & shipping material. So I am forced to ask that the person asking for donated supplies pay their own postage. I hate to do this but, I have been unable to come up with any ways to make money for postage. If anyone have any real good idea's how I could raise money for postage I would love to hear it. Write to me at KimberlyDAdvent@aol.com
A Note From Kimberly
I wanted to share with you a solution I found to a problem you might not even know you have. For the last month or so, I've been frustrated with the lack of performance of my computer. I knew something was wrong but I had no idea what it was. It turns out that my computer was infected with viral parasites, and further reasearch shows that 9 out of 10 computers are. Even though I use AOL's Security Edition with Spyware Protection & I run McCafee's Virus Scan, it wasn't enough. I also ran Lavasoft's Adware Removal Program & the Spybot Search and Destroy Program but it still wasn't right. I stumbled accross an ad that said they could prove that my computer was still infected for FREE! Well, turns out they were right, and after scanning my computer with the program it showed 37 infected files.....37!!, and that was after running all the other programs first! Needless to say, my computer is now virus free and running at least 3 times faster than before. So, my suggestion is that you Try This Program Yourself for FREE by clicking on the ad below and see how many Parasites are hiding on your machine. I wouldn't recommend it if it didn't work.....and work well. You can Thank Me later.
A plea for help
Below I am adding a letter I received from a very concerned parent. She needs your help. I am going to ask you all to dig deep & if you are able to help this woman's daughter please contact me. Thank you.
Hi. Oh how I wish you and your site was around when we found out about our daughter.She was a month from turning 10 when we found out. Like your daughter my daughter had also had the flu and then came down with diabetes. She's getting ready to turn 21 in April of this year, she's now a mother of 2 baby boys. It's been tough on her. She's always had a problem with high levels but A1C always ran below 8.0. while she was carrying my grandbabies they put her on the pump and out of all the years she didn't run high anymore. She's in wonderful control. This is the bad part. She has told me that as of February 2004, Medicaid will drop her. and she will have to go back to using shots for she's been unable to get insurance and on top of that she told me that starting next week she's out of supplies for the pump. I'm unable to help her money wise so I did the only they I could do and that was try to find someone to please help my baby girl. So if there is anyway you could point me in the right direction on how to help my little girl I would be so thankful I worry about her everyday as I'm sure you do your's. I also worry about her not being around for those sweet little boys of hers. My friends tell me I worry too much but as a mother that had to watch her little girl face this at a young age and to have that sweet little face look up at you with tears in there eyes at the age of 10 and tell you that don't want to die, well you know..I know I don't have to say anymore for reading your pages I could tell that the same pain I went thru and still go thru you did to so I know you understand what it's like. So if you could help my daughter out, I would be so thankful and now that I know about your site if I come across supplies that you could use to help others out there, I would be so happy to send them to you so please attach some info on that also. Once again I hope you can help if not I understand. Thank you and May God bless you and yours and bless your site.
People will not remember what you said nor what you did

To the World, You may be One Person,
but to One Person, You may be the World!
May your day be blessed with lots of smiles and sunshine..
Here is another Woman that needs your help.
Hi, my name is Jenny Lewis and I was browsing online and found your website.
I am a 21 year old single mother that delevoped diabetes during pregnancy
and I now have type II diabetes. While I was pregnant I had medicaid and
they supplied my test strips and lancets. However six weeks after I had my
son I lost my medical card and can no long get my supplies. Since I am a
single mother I can not afford to buy these as you know they are really
expensive. I have tried to get help everywhere around my community but
haven't had any success. If you can help me in any way I would really
appreciate it and if not I do understand. I'm suppose to check my blood
sugar 12 times a day (when i wake up, before meals, one hour after meals,
two hours after meals and so on...) The machine that I have is One Touch
Ultra. I have about 15 test strips at the moment as I have been trying to
conserve them because I don't know when I will get anymore test strips. If
you need anymore information please feel free to contact me. Again I
appreciate your time and I understand if there aren't enough supplies to
help at the time...but I thought it would be worth a try....and I also
wanted to tell you how wonderful I think it is that you have pulled this
website together to help others in situations like myself.
Needs help with pump supplies
My name is Tonja Stell. I was diagnosed in 2002 with Diabetes. I have been struggling with getting help on buying the supplies and medication that I need..Right now I cannot get any help from any of the State programs for I do not have children, am not disabled and I am not over 65 years old. There is not a program out there to help a very low- income person to get the medication and supplies needed..I am needing the pump supplies for the Paradigm Insulin Pump..Right now the only supplies I need are the Quick-Set Plus infusion sets.. I also could use some of the I.V. Prep wipes too. I am doing fine with the reservoirs. I am currently down to just 12 infusions left..I hope to be hearing from you soon..Thanks so much...
