Support Diabetes Awareness Charities with Charity T-Shirts for a Cause
FEATURED CHARITY: American Diabetes Association
Since 1940, the American Diabetes Association has improved the lives of thousands of people with diabetes, through research, prevention, and advocacy. To be more specific, it’s spent a very impressive $700 million on diabetes research to date, sponsoring almost 4,500 research projects with money raised through corporate donors as well as via crazy-popular community events like Tour de Cure and the Step Out Walk.
You can help people who are living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes by shopping with Certantees. All you have to do is choose the American Diabetes Association as your charity of choice at checkout and we’ll donate to it on your behalf. So start shopping for the cure already!
Although 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year, 1 in 4 Americans with diabetes don’t know that they’re living with this condition. Let’s change that! If you’d like to spread the word about diabetes, then here’s what you can do:
Shop Charity T-Shirts with Certantees
When you shop with us, 5% of the purchase price goes to an org that works on preventing, managing, and curing diabetes. Help pay for that research—explore our bananas selection of graphic tees!
Lobby Local Schools to Stock Their Vending Machines with Healthy Snacks and Drinks
To prevent diabetes later in life, kids need to be taught healthy eating habits ASAP. Give them an assist by contacting schools in your district and urging them to serve healthy lunches, stock their vending machines with healthy snacks, and ban sodas on campus.

Want to design your own diabetes awareness t-shirts? You can! Whether you make a type 1 diabetes awareness t-shirt, type 2 diabetes awareness t-shirts, or a general diabetes awareness shirt, 5% of your purchase will go toward this cause and allow you to wear your advocacy on your sleeve.
Share Your Skills with Your Local Diabetes Association Office
