grey ribbon banner

Why are our bracelets grey? Grey depicts the despair and gloom so prevalent in those affected by diabetes, silver (polished grey) represents the "lining" or the hope that there will soon be a cure.

It is essentially a symbol for increasing awareness by educating the public about the seriousness of diabetes; it represents an effort to create an effective and productive movement to find a cure for the disease.

The Grey Ribbon Campaign idea evolved from a discussion on the CompuServe Diabetes and Hypoglycemia Forum whose members are always looking for ways of educating the public and pushing for cure research.

Noting the successes of other ribbon campaigns this group realized that diabetics (and those who care about them) should have their own ribbon---with gray representing clouds (every cloud must have a silver lining) and with the stone symbolizing blood. Thus the Grey Ribbon was born.
