Hundreds of people across the country took part in #TypeOnesie last year to raise awareness of World Diabetes Day and raise funds for JDRF... are you going to be a #TypeOnesie this year?
This year, we want to make #TypeOnesie bigger and better than ever before... and we need your help to do it! Remember to share your photos and videos of your #TypeOnesie activities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
What is a #TypeOnesie?
All you need to do is wear a onesie for the day – whether you’re at school or work – and join thousands of others across the country in raising awareness of type 1 diabetes and money for JDRF. You can get an official JDRF onesie for the occasion at Onesie Warehouse and £5 will be donated to us.
If you're up for a bigger challenge, take a look at our fundraising guide for ideas of what you can do to raise even more awareness.
We’ve already had hundreds of schools planning their #TypeOnesie activities. If you want to join in, fill in the form at the bottom of this page for more information.
Whatever day you do it, we’d be thrilled to see and support your #TypeOnesie activities whatever day you take part.
Where your money goes
The money you raise will help to support our vital research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.
We fund a variety of research projects to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes, including smart insulins. Smart insulins are a new class of insulin that could be used to treat type 1 diabetes, keeping glucose control nearly perfect, with only one injection a day.
