Nick Jonas, teen pop sensation from the Jonas Brothers and Bayer Health Care has teamed up to make a difference for people with diabetes by releasing these limited edition dog tag modeled after the one warn by Nick.
These dog tags, designed by Nick, feature a lyric from “A Little Bit Longer,” the song Nick wrote about his diabetes. They have two different versions of the dog tags, one for people who would like to support the cause and another especially for people with the disease. The dog tag for people with diabetes has the lyric on the front, but also has the word, “diabetes” on the back. These limited edition dog tags are available at Nicks Simple Wins.com for a donation of $5. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Jonas Brothers’ Change for the Children Foundation while supplies last.
“The dog tag is a cool, fashion-forward symbol of inspiration, and you don’t have to have diabetes to wear one,” said Nick Jonas. “My brothers and I are grateful to Bayer for this additional opportunity to raise money for our foundation.”
“Nick is a fantastic partner to Bayer and a wonderful role model for people living with diabetes, and we’re happy to support his efforts to raise funds through the Jonas Brothers’ Change for the Children Foundation,” said Nancy Katz, head of North America for Bayer Diabetes Care.
The Jonas Brothers started the foundation to provide support to charitable programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination and a will to succeed.
Nick who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 13, has teamed up with Bayer to provide young people and their families with the motivation and support they need to help simplify life with diabetes. He hopes to inspire other young people with diabetes to achieve Simple Wins: small, everyday victories for managing the disease that can lead to beg differences over time.
