Nine days to go! Staff from the JDRF London office are warming up for World Diabetes Day
Posted on 05 November 2013
It’s not long to go now until World Diabetes Day on 14 November. This year, JDRF is asking people to be a #TypeOnesie, wearing a onesie for the whole day to raise funds to support type 1 diabetes research.
Our staff have already been having a lot of fun getting ready for the day, by warming up their office chairs and firing up the photo-copier in their #TypeOnesie get-up!
Ben Moody (pictured), our Senior Public Affairs Manager who lives with type 1 diabetes, said: “When else will there ever be a worthwhile and legitimate reason to wear a onesie in the office? This is a great campaign and will provide an engaging way to support important research into type 1 diabetes. With fun initiatives like this, we can get even closer to finding a cure.”
“I will definitely be sporting my #TypeOnesie on 14 November and with the overwhelming positive response that we have had, I’m sure plenty others will do so too!”

Pledge your support for World Diabetes Day 2013 by being a #TypeOnesie and getting involved too. Be it at work, school or college, raise money by donning your #TypeOnesie, and help JDRF improve lives until we find the cure.
