Wow. I'm late to this party and I have to say I'm a bit embarrassed and hurt by some of the comments here. We have to appreciate that running TuD and EsTuD has always taken money. Our community is approaching 100,000. And DHF has always raised money from corporate sponsors. And it is almost always based on some mutually beneficial arrangement. Even our BigBlueTest always operated with a corporate sponsor. If it had been possible to support our community based on donations from our members that would have been great, but DHF and most diabetes organizations cannot raise enough money that way.
And the field of diabetes charities has become overloaded. It is really hard to raise funds. You all may not have realized this but it has been very difficult time for DHF. DHF has always sent us messages about sponsorship activities and for fundraising. This should be absolutely no surprise. I am sure that our founder Manny Hernandez was the inspiration for the Livongo sponsorship and I am frankly grateful. As has been repeated, DHF/BT1 never sells your private information. You can choose whether or not you care to go with Livongo, but if you do they will donate money to us. If you don't like these sorts of messages you can unsubscribe.
