JDRF has teamed up with Morphsuits, the costume phenomenon taking over the world!, to deliver a special discount initiative and campaign call to JDRF supporters to come forward, ‘Morph On!’, and help raise awareness of type 1 whilst raising funds to support research to cure, treat and prevent the condition.
There has never been a better time for supporters, families, and friends to buy specially discounted blue Morph suits and get involved with fundraising and publicity opportunities the length and breadth of the country. Dress up in suits and take photos taken next to famous landmarks, take part in sporting events, walks and bike rides, and even parachute jumps– anything goes!
Morphsuits are all-in-one spandex suits that cover the whole of the body from head to toe, specially designed so that you can breathe through them, see through them and drink through them, but nobody can see you. The suits can easily be adapted for people with type 1 so you can still do finger prick tests and wear a pump - click here to download your 'How to' guide.
To help JDRF raise valuable funds to support type 1 research, Morphsuits are offering JDRF supporters a discount on blue suits and will then be donating the difference to JDRF. To order your suit please click here for your adult suit or here for your child suit. To get your 25% discount on your blue suit type in: morphjdrf when you get to the basket.
JDRF is delighted to be working with Morphsuits on this initiative as the suits present a really fantastic visual and fun way of raising funds. As well as being a lot of fun, most importantly this project will help promote really positive messages about living with type 1 diabetes and visually illustrate how the condition can affect people’s lives. What better way to do that than an immensely eye catching, all in one bright blue spandex suit!
Morphsuits really wanted to work with JDRF to help raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and help raise money for research through suit sales.
David and Jon (pictured) from the JDRF team are riding from London to Paris today in their blue Morph suits as part of JDRF’s Morph On! Campaign. JDRF is looking forward to other supporters coming forward to pledge your support by buying a suit and organizing your own events.
So come on, why not give it a go and have a load of fun while supporting JDRF!
