Well, #TrashBash2021 was a huge success, between that and #VHS4T1D, we have raised over $5500 for the JDRF! We're so proud and thankful to be part of such an amazing community of friends, podcasters and movie fans! Unfortunately T1D is still a reality, it hasn't been cured yet and there is still a huge need for funding of this research, so we're cranking #VHS4T1D back up, and we're excited to be recording these special episodes for you guys again! Just leave a donation of $20 or more and we'll watch whatever movie you want, whether it is you favorite, or something ridiculous that you think would be hilarious to make us watch (Tae Bo, ahem...), and depending on how much you donate there are even more cool perks, just check the tiers below!
Many of you have heard Dan's daughter Lily on the podcast, whether on a Kids Korner episode or maybe in one of the Month of Horror videos. Well, Lily lives with T1D, which means that her pancreas does not produce the insulin she needs to convert her food into energy for her body. A T1D diagnosis means that you will spend the rest of your life constantly checking your blood sugar levels, monitoring your food intake, and having to take insulin, and there are no days off. It's a lot of work for anyone, especially a little girl trying to just live her life and have fun with her friends.
The JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is focused on finding a cure for T1D for Lily and millions of other people like her, and they have made great strides already in that process, but more research and more funding are needed to make this dream of a cure a reality, and that's where you can help out!
