thanks to a post written by Laura over at The Houston Five I will be writing Ms Ellen Degeneres a letter about a very special dude named Noah who is spreading the word about type 1 diabetes one blue flamingo at a time who would like to be on her show.
The Diabetes Dude takes on Ellen Degeneres!
Noah, The Diabetes Dude, is on a mission! He's already sent Ellen Degeneres one of his flamingos, but he wants to "flock" her on her show so he can talk about his unique diabetes awareness campaign. He's asking that everyone send an e-mail to Ellen and tell her that they want to see The Diabetes Dude on her show! He's hoping that a little persistence will pay off and he can show all the kids (and grown-ups) with diabetes that they can do anything! Write into the Ellen show here: www.ellentv.com, click on "be on the show" and the "dear ellen" link! Thanks for your support!
About the Flamingo Flock
The "Flamingo Flock" is a campaign to raise awareness for diabetes, which started a few short weeks ago. This campaign originally started to help raise funds on Noah's behalf for the American Diabetes Association, but we have become so overwhelmed with the responses that we have recieved that Noah has decided to turn it into a full fledged campaign to raise awareness and would love to see this go national!
If you've been lucky enough to be flocked by one of our blue flamingos, it's because someone you know has nominated you to participate in this fun campaign!
Noah uses blue flamingos instead of traditional pink flamingos to not only get people talking about these crazy colored birds but also because this is the color used for diabetes awareness.
Please feel free to personalize your flamingo in any way you see fit (but please, nothing permanent!), take your flamingo on a journey, to an event, or just let it participate in your everyday activities. Please snap a few photos and forward them to Noah with a short story about the visit to email@example.com.
Noah wants everyone to know that people with diabetes, especially kids with diabetes, can do anything they put their mind to and nothing, including diabetes, will stop that!
If you would like to request a visit or would like to nominate a family for one of Noah's flamingos to visit, please feel free to e-mail us as well! You'll never know where these birds are going to show up next!
So I will ask you again.... whatcha doing tonight??
P.S. Noah I wonder if your flock is strong enough to fly to Canada?
