2008 Press Release   

"I'm Tired of Diabetes" ... Aren't you?

(November, 2008) -- The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation was named the beneficiary of the latest fashion trend - the "I'm Tired" bracelet, a clever conept made from recycled tires.

That's right ... recycled tires!

The eco-friendly bracelet features a metal bead with the inscription, "I'm Tired of Diabetes." For just $10, it's very inexpensive yet fashionably cool, and HALF the amount is donated to the DRI!

Diabetes is just one of the causes supported in this effort. Whatever you're "tired" of -- from global warming and animal cruetly to cancer -- the message is simple and powerful.

Half the amount of the sale is donated to the respective causes, and ALL proceeds from the sales of the "I'm Tired of Diabetes" bracelets go to the DRI.

2013 UPDATE: These bracelets are currently not available.
