Casting Call for Big Blue Test video 2011

We are currently in production for this year's 2011 Big Blue Test video project for World Diabetes Day. Once again, Roche Diabetes Care (the makers of ACCU-CHEK products and services) is sponsoring the production of the video, helping us get a better site in place for the the big day of the Big Blue Test and coming through with another donation of $75,000, 2/3 of which will go to US-based charities helping people with diabetes who are struggling with their care in rural or underserved areas and 1/3 of which will go to Life For a Child once more.

For the video we are producing, in order to feature REAL people (not actors) in the video we NEED YOUR HELP and want to reach out to everyone in the diabetic community as part of our Casting Call.

Check out last year's video and help us make this year's even better!
