2020 Holiday Guide: Gifts That Give Back


This holiday season may look different, but what hasn’t changed is the heart of our community and our dedication to driving JDRF’s mission to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) forward. Giving to others has always been a hallmark of the holidays, and during this global pandemic, spreading joy to others feels more important than ever. So what does safe holiday gifting look like this year?

These gift ideas will not only brighten someone’s day but will have a lasting impact on the lives of families and individuals living with T1D.

For the person who’s always on-the-go: Shop SCOTTeVEST’s line of clothing with strategically placed pockets, perfect for carrying all of your necessary supplies with you at all times. Shoppers receive 15% off their purchase, with 15% of the proceeds going to JDRF.

For the virtual learner: JDRF’s TypeOneNation Virtual Summit is available to view on-demand! If you missed it live in September, our completely free Summit gives you access to educational sessions from T1D medical and scientific experts, candid conversations and performances from social influencers and T1D ambassadors, downloadable resources from our virtual Exhibit Hall, and so much more! Share the gift of knowledge with family and friends!

For the JDRF swag collector: Send a JDRF cotton face mask (or a few!) to someone special so they can show their JDRF pride! A necessary accessory these days, send JDRF face masks as a thank you to supporters and those who have made a difference in your T1D journey – plus, $1 from every mask sold goes to JDRF!

Wishing our community, a safe and joyous holiday season!
