Office Campaign Tool Kit

The Diabetes Community is vast and filled with people driven by passion and dedication. The community includes patients, caregivers, business leaders, and countless other people touched by diabetes. Since 2013, our community as a whole has come together around Valentine’s Day to help address the serious issue of access to insulin in less-resourced countries during the Spare a Rose, Save a Child campaign.

Part of the success of the campaign is due to several generous companies supporting the effort through in-office activities. By giving their staff the opportunity to participate in Spare a Rose, these companies expand our audience, helping us to save the lives of children in need. Would your workplace benefit from a fun February event? Join us!

How can you get involved?

Enthusiastic support from executive management is inspiring, and important.  Spare a Rose can be a fun, but powerfully effective campaign.  When company leadership support Spare a Rose efforts, it helps raise visibility for the campaign and empowers conversations and participation.  This is a time to rally your employees around an effort that has real and powerful outcomes!  We encourage leadership to send positive messages introducing the campaign and share updates as well as stories of success along the way to motivate participation.


Office place rewards can help raise awareness, money, and morale. Here are a few ideas to kick off Spare a Rose season:

  • All participants allowed to wear jeans or other non-typical attire on February 14. Raffles of company marketing swag to participants
  • Department leaders raffle taking an employee’s car for a mid-February wash (especially awesome if you live in New England)
  • Company department that raises the most money receives catered lunch

… and so on and so forth.  Whatever fits your company culture, embrace that reward and make it part of your February plans!  You and your team have the opportunity to save lives across the globe, and we’re thankful for your support.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact and we’ll get back to you right away!


The campaign hashtag is #SpareARose. Help us to spread the word by blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking etc.
