2018 NDAM Highlights

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM) and there is plenty going on throughout the month to help raise awareness for type 1 diabetes (T1D)! Here is your one-stop shop for everything NDAM.

Buona has a beef with T1D and is running campaigns all month to help create a world without diabetes.

  • All Buona locations are running a Round Up at the Register campaign for the entire month to benefit JDRF. Just say yes when asked at checkout to help turn Type One into Type None!
  • Buona will match 100% of the amount raised through the Round Up campaign on Giving Tuesday (11/27).
  • Also throughout the month, cater your corporate meeting or luncheon and Buona will donate 15% of your order to JDRF. Just enter the code ‘JDRF’ at checkout or call 708.749.2333 and mention JDRF. This offer is valid on delivery orders only.
  • Tuesday, November 13 is JDRF Family Day! If you show this flier at checkout, Buona will donate 20% of your order to double the donation to JDRF! As an added bonus, you can receive 50% off of a famous Buona shake and meet JDRF Youth Ambassadors from 4 – 8 p.m.

Share Your Story
This is an important time for the T1D community to come together and help educate others on the reality of life with T1D. Visit jdrf.org/ndam where JDRF has Facebook cover frames, T1D footprint generator, and other great tools to make sharing your T1D story a little easier. Be sure to share the link with friends!

Also be sure to check out the JDRF YouTube page where we have nearly 20 shareable videos to build support and educate. Kicking off this month is a video on “What I Wish More People Knew About Type 1 Diabetes.”
