We are pleased to announce our recent donation of $1000 to Diabetes Alive which was donated through Rotary Club Wyong/Tuggerah. This fund was created to help raise money for a $9000 insulin pump for a local toddler diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. The Diabetes Alive Insulin Pump Program, in partnership with Medtronic, Variety – The Children’s Charity and Rotary Club St Ives, ensures “the success and helps raise awareness to highlight the importance of the need for this vital lifesaving product, that children living with Diabetes need in order live a ‘normal’ life without complications” (Diabetes Alive, 2018). The donation that CostSmart contributed will help a young girl from the Central Coast receive an insulin pump. This pump will allow for optimal glycaemic control, and therefore, a better quality of everyday life.
