Giving Back: Supporting Our Local Type 1 Diabetes Community

Posted by Tara Cohen on Nov, Tue 08, 2016

Fifteen years ago, a teenage girl with Type 1 Diabetes inspired the design of the very first stylish, interchangeable medical ID bracelet. That was Lauren. And that first little group of bracelets she received as a gift from her mom’s friend was the beginning of Lauren’s Hope.

Today, we carry hundreds of medical ID jewelry styles for men, women, and kids with all manner of medical conditions all over the world. But in the beginning, we started with Type 1. That’s one of the many reasons why the Type 1 Diabetes community is so dear to us as a team and why giving back to Type 1 organizations nationwide is so core to who we are as a company. As we get into Diabetes Awareness Month, we hope you’ll join us in supporting the Type 1 community, not only today, but all year long.

Alden Davis Is A Kid With Courage!

Posted by Tara Cohen on Jan, Fri 16, 2015

Recently, a few of us here at Lauren’s Hope attended the Kids With Courage (KWC) Foundation’s One Inspired Evening Gala. This was our second time attending the annual event in support and celebration of this outstanding organization, which serves Kansas City-area children with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. The big standout this year, however, wasn’t the gorgeous venue or the incredible silent auction. It was a keynote speaker who blew the crowd away, sharing a carefully prepared, inspiring statement, from the heart, with no notes in front of him and the polished delivery of a seasoned speaker. But this wasn’t a noted Kansas City endocrinologist or a Type 1 parent. This speaker was Alden Davis: Type 1 Kid With Courage, age 6.

Teaming Up For T1D: Introducing Kids With Courage

Posted by Tara Cohen on Apr, Wed 02, 2014

Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry was founded after CEO and Owner, LeAnn Carlson, created a stylish, interchangeable medical alert bracelet for a teenage girl with Type 1 Diabetes who simply refused to wear the unattractive, uncomfortable medical alert jewelry of the past. Since making that very first bracelet in 2001, Type 1 Diabetes has remained a high priority here at Lauren’s Hope. In addition to regularly attending diabetes events in our community; sending gift certificates, donations, and other forms of support to diabetes-related events and organizations around the world; and making a concerted effort to raise awareness of Type 1 Diabetes on a regular basis, Lauren’s Hope has donated well over $100,000 to the JDRF. When we say T1D is important around here, we really do mean it.
