Friday, February 14, 2020

BASEL, Switzerland – Ascensia Diabetes Care is supporting the 2020 Spare a Rose Campaign, a fundraiser to provide insulin, testing supplies and education for children with Type 1 diabetes in countries with limited access. The Spare a Rose campaign, created by Life for a Child, encourages people to buy at least one less rose for their loved ones on Valentine’s day and instead donate $5 to Life for a Child. Ascensia will match employee donations up to $8,500, representing one rose per employee. Over the past two years, Ascensia and its employees have donated more than $23,000 to Life for a Child. “We are delighted to be supporting Life for a Child for the third time, as we believe in the ability of this campaign to change the lives of young people with diabetes,” said Robert Schumm, diabetes management domain head and head of BGM Business at Ascensia.
