Fundraising for a Cause on TuDiabetes

How to Fundraise on TuDiabetes

Many of you are active in the diabetes community and are involved in activities that help you lead a healthier lifestyle and raise money to help others who are touched by diabetes. We at the Diabetes Hands Foundation want to support your efforts, so we have created guidelines on how to fundraise for your event while still following the TuDiabetesTerms of Use.

If you are involved in an athletic activity such as a 5K walk or training for a marathon, or anything in between, we applaud your initiative and want to support your efforts in leading a healthy lifestyle and allow you to raise funds for your cause. In order to avoid having your posts about your event and fundraising being deleted as spam on TuDiabetes please follow these guidelines:

1. Please contact DHF staff to let them know about your event and fundraising plans. You may email Emily Coles at: Once she has acknowledged your request to post about your event you may do so by:
2. Creating a blog post that describes your event, your reasons for doing it, and instructions on how to donate. Please be sure to include the information about where the money will be going and what it will be used for. This blog post may include a link to a page where people can donate.
3. If this is an athletic event that is open to others, you may also create an event with the details on how other people may register for this event. You may link this event to your blog post with your fundraising information, but please only post your fundraising information in one place, otherwise it will be considered spam.
4. If you have any questions about how to create a blog post or an event, or about what constitutes spam, please email Emily.

Thank you for being a part of our community and for taking the initiative to lead an active life and support others while you do this.
