Show us your Selfie Footie and help stomp out diabetes

Have you posted your "Selfie Footie" on our Facebook page yet? We've just launched a fundraising effort in honor of National Diabetes Month, and when you post a picture of your feet on our Facebook page, we'll give $5 to the American Diabetes Association — up to $2,500 — for the entire month of November. If you post five pictures of your feet, we'll give $25. If you post 20 pictures of your feet, we'll give $100! So, get out your phone or camera and start snapping Selfie Footies! To post them on our Facebook page, just look for a post on our timeline that says "Show us your Selfie Footie!" In the comments section, click the little camera icon in the comments field to upload your Selfie Footie as a comment.

And here's the kicker: if your Selfie Footie has the most "Likes" by noon on Friday, you'll win a free pedicure in our medical-grade spa! (Tie breaker will be the one posted FIRST.) We'll have a winner each week in November. See contest rules.

Please invite all your friends to post their Selfie Footie photos on our Facebook page as well. Remember, the more Selfie Footies posted on our page, the more money we'll raise for the American Diabetes Association.

We'll be hosting a free event at our clinic on Nov. 19: "What Every Diabetic Should Know About Feet." Space is limited, so register for the seminar to reserve your seat.

Show us your Selfie Footie and help stomp out diabetes

 

November is National Diabetes Month, and this year we have a fun way to help raise money for the American Diabetes Association. We call it the "Selfie Footie" campaign, and you can help — it's easy and won't cost you a thing — except a picture of your feet! Here's how it works:

  • Snap a quick photo of your feet. You can be wearing shoes or socks or be barefoot, you can have a fancy pedicure, or you can just look down at whatever your feet are doing right NOW, and take a photo! Then, share your photo on our Facebook page — just look for the "Show us your Selfie Footie" post, and comment on the post with your pic. (Click the little camera icon in the comments field to upload your photo.)
     
  • For every Selfie Footie picture you post on our Facebook page, we'll contribute $5 to the American Diabetes Association, up to $2,500, through the end of November.
     
  • Win a free pedicure: the Selfie Footie pic on our Facebook page with the most likes by noon each Friday in November wins a free pedicure in our medical-grade spa! (In a tie, the one that was posted FIRST wins.) See contest rules.

You may wonder why all of us at The Foot & Ankle Center care so much about stomping out diabetes. It's because we see so many patients with diabetic foot problems, and foot problems are the number one cause of hospitalization for diabetics, sometimes leading to amputations. This is also why we stress the importance of annual comprehensive diabetic foot exams. If you're diabetic and you haven't had your annual foot exam yet, please make an appointment as soon as possible!

We're also offering a free seminar in our clinic on Nov. 19 on "What Every Diabetic Should Know About Feet." It's a free educational event, but space is limited, so register for the seminar to reserve your seat.
