Denim For Diabetes - Corporate Day

We are offering you a unique opportunity to participate in our “Denim for Diabetes” Corporate Project.  Diabetes South is a registered Non-profit (000-795) / public benefit organization (930014852). Diabetes South Africa organizes many projects and programs to promote awareness about prevention and management of diabetes, these include: workshops for newly diagnosed patients, cookery demos, support groups, community wellness days and corporate health days. 14th November is World Diabetes Day and therefore we would like to implement Denim For Diabetes nationally on that day.


We have implemented a fun, fundraising initiative called, Denim for Diabetes – It’s in your genes’  this involves your company hosting a casual day for us where staff will wear an item of denim in exchange for a small donation of R10.

We have the printed stickers, which read, “I’ve escaped my uniform! Denim for Diabetes Day and Diabetes SA”. We have also designed a poster for the company to display, advertising the day.


We are focusing on the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise in the management of diabetes and the prevention of Type 2 diabetes which is most prevalent in adults and can be curbed by a healthy lifestyle.


We have only just initiated the project and our aim is for the program to be ongoing and sustainable throughout South Africa. We hope to encourage all corporates to participate in order for us to reach as many people as possible with this diabetes awareness project.


Diabetes South Africa would like the opportunity of adding value to your companies staff who are diabetic as well as educating those who are not and do not understand what diabetes is.  Therefore Diabetes South Africa would be an asset to your organization, in this way and others.
