I was invited by Johnson & Johnson Medical (Philippines) to guest for their exhibit, the "Word in Your hand" contest, sponsored by their One Touch Glucose Meter Systems. The contest, which idea came form DHF's Word in Hand, is already running on it's second year, and I am so blessed to be able to grace the said occasion again. It was just astounding! The booth was swarmed by people eager to join the contest! Though tiring, smiles in the peoples' face sure made it all worth it. I also was so much honored to be able to share the community to more people, in an effort to reach out and touch those whose lives have been touched by diabetes. I am not going to say more, but I will show you photos of what happened at the Expo, specifically, about the "Word in Your Hand" contest. Enjoy!

Ola, Andreina! The link at the bottom of the blog will go to Facebook, where all the photos are uploaded. There was so much more to do this time around. I will be posting another video of what exactly went on at the booth.
