Shine a light on diabetes

they have it

Since 2007, thousands of monuments and buildings around the world have been lit in blue in November to raise awareness of diabetes and support World Diabetes Day.

This November, shine a light on diabetes by arranging the blue lighting of a monument or building in your town or city. Every blue lighting counts, no matter how big or small!:
