This morning, when I logged into Constant Contact (the service we use to help us manage our mailing lists) I was reminded of something very important: saying thanks!

So I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU:
  • To those of you who come to the community every day, once a month or once in a blue moon.
  • To those of you who take a moment to say "welcome", "hello", "check out this discussion" or "I hear you: you are not alone!" to someone else here.
  • To those of you who take time to share your experiences of life with diabetes with others here, for the benefit of everyone.
  • To those of you who have donated $5, $20, $200 or $1,000.
  • To those of you who help get the word out about TuDiabetes.
  • To those of you who may have been members at some point and chose to move on.
  • To those who have sponsored part of our work.
  • To the companies that have advertised on TuDiabetes.
  • To the groups that have generously funded our work through grants.

To every single one of you: THANK YOU!!

Nice post Manny, and thank YOU, Andreina, and the Administrators for doing all the behind the scenes work to keep TuD going. I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking how much more difficult my Diabetes life would be without everyone on this Board.

Hope we make 20,000 STRONG by World Diabetes Day
I suspect we will reach 20,000 members a lot sooner than that. :)
And to You and Your Team an even BIGGER Thank You :)
Thank You Manny for helping all of us find each other! You and the Admistration are THE BEST in my book!
Thank you Manny & everyone at TuD for giving us such a wonderful community. The DOC has made a huge difference for me. I really appreciate everyone here!

You are Welcome. :) Thank' s again to you and your Fine Team and Friends for creating and looking after this Top Community..

Having discovered TuD after a life-threatening coma, I couldn't be more pleased and motivated to take better care of my diabetes. The wide variety of people here, and the wealth of topics can provide support for almost anyone. So glad you're here! :-)
Your welcome Manny and and Thank You. I hope you know what this site means to so many people like me.
TuD helped to change my life. Thank you for bringing such a wonderful community to life. Additionally, thanks to all the members. Manny and the Admin guve us a place, but without all the contributors it would be an empty house. On behalf of myself and my loved ones, thank you.
