- If you have diabetes you test their blood sugar (no diabetes? no testing!)
- You exercise for at least 14-20 minutes.
- You test again (if you have diabetes), and
- You share their experience on BigBlueTest.org or through the app for iPhone or Android.
Since 2010, over 40,000 people helped themselves while helping more than 10,000 others. Most participants in the Big Blue Test experience an average blood sugar drop of 20%. Each Big Blue Test helps you and helps others, through a life-saving donation made on your behalf. This has translated in $250,000 awarded by Diabetes Hands Foundation in Big Blue Test grants in the past 4 years.
In 2013, every 10 Big Blue Test results that get logged, Diabetes Hands Foundation grants $5 in support of people with diabetes in need around the world. Big Blue Test grants awarded this year will benefit two US-based initiatives (each will receive US$2,500) and an additional US$5,000 will support projects in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. To do this, we’re seeking to reach 20,000 Big Blue Test entries by the end of World Diabetes Day (November 14, 2013).
Help yourself and help others. Get active, #jointhemovement: do the #BigBlueTest every day!
