I am a fan of what the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) does, especially their Life For A Child program.
One of their recent public service announcement videos was shared by several people on Facebook in the last few weeks and I thought you might be interested to see it.
Now, normally their videos are moving, but this one? Not so much.
Watch for yourself:
(E-mail and feed subscribers click over for the embedded video.)
Nothing about the video shares what diabetes is like for those who deal with it day in and day out.
Is it supposed to be the smoke monster from Lost?
Or the dementors from Harry Potter?
Q could hear it from the other room as I watched and said, “Mommy? What are you watching? Is it a horror movie?”
Here’s the description that IDF gives:
“A new global public service announcement produced by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) that challenges the public to look at diabetes in a different light, underlining the serious consequences of the disease that can often go unnoticed if it is not managed and treated properly. The video also promotes the importance of staying healthy to protect our future.”
What do you think?
