There are so many ways to be an advocate for something. It’s not hard, I promise! Half of these you can do without even trying.
Talk to your friends and family about it.
Participate in events around it.
Educate those who ask you about it.
Fund-raise and donate to causes that support it in some way.
Write a blog and communicate with others on the internet about it.
Meetup with others who have experience with it, and/or create a local group that can support each other in person.
I like to do all of these things, and my “it” just happens to be diabetes. (I am also a new member of
Diabetes Advocates, yay!)
Part of my JDRF walk team from last weekend, all of us T1 (except for my daughter) and just some pretty all-around great girls!
