The Global Diabetes Handprint is a project designed to bring together people who have been touched by diabetes, to communicate and share what living with diabetes means to them.

Thousands of people have already joined the Global Diabetes Handprint, which was inspired by the Word in Your Hand™ Project from Tudiabetes and now it's Australia's turn. Australia is the first country in the Southern Hemisphere to join this global phenomenon and they need your hand.

Getting involved is simple. By writing a word on your hand expressing your feelings about diabetes and sharing the story behind it, you'll become part of a community that puts a human face on a condition which affects 1.7 million Australians.

For each hand that gets submitted, Johnson & Johnson Medical will donate $5 to one of two leading Australian diabetes organisations – The Type 1 Diabetes Network or the Diabetes Counselling Online.

I designed a handprint with help!
When my mother was diagnosed they basically said to her "there is alot of information to learn about in diabetes".
I think in her case 'help!' sums it up nicely.
