Squids Hate Diabetes

As a founder of juvenation, I have a confession to make- I belong to other social network communities. Yep, I know that's hard to believe, but it's true.

We all belong to so many different communities, and the compassion sometimes bridges over from one community to another. I wanted to share with the juvenation members, the news of how another online community has done this in a remarkable fashion.

Squidoo a knowledge sharing network (where I also belong) has generously decided to help support our cause. Last week, the thousands of members at SQUIDOO DONATED $50,000 to our JDRF walk team in NC (Cassie's Care Team). They were able to do this from the ad revenue that their individually built pages have generated. Pennies from Google ads add up, and the gang at squidoo was able to amass a pretty hefty number of them for diabetes research.

I'm incredibly humbled and so very grateful to all our friends who share our passion - especially to our lensmaster friends at Squidoo. Next time you see a squid please hug them. If you don't know any, I'd urge you to check out the squidoo site and maybe become one yourself.
