Diabetes Fundraiser: Brenda Novak For the Cure of Diabetes


Brenda Novak, mother of five and bestselling New York Times and USA Today author, has raised over $1.3 million dollars for diabetes research through her annual online auctions.  Brenda’s youngest son, Thad, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of five.  After Thad’s diagnosis, Brenda wanted to do anything possible to give him a better chance at a healthy life, and so her fundraising work began.

This year, for Diabetes Awareness Month, Brenda is selling  “I helped raise $1.3 million for research” T-shirts, designed with an army of gray ribbons on the back to represent the collective effort of everyone who has supported the auction.  The T-shirts cost $25 and all profits are donated to diabetes research.  Brenda’s store also offers a $50 package that includes her latest trilogy, autographed, the T-shirt and a free Christmas novella that people can give as gifts for Christmas. 

You can see the T-shirt and package here: www.brendanovakforthecure.org

Thanks, Jessica! T-shirt sales are brisk. Here’s hoping we raise several more thousand dollars!
