Diabetes Domination!

Hi, my name is William Grame and I want to help as many people as possible dominate diabetes with my invention but I need your help…

I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5 (I’m now 11).  For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is a disease which stops the body producing insulin, a hormone necessary for the body’s cells to absorb energy in the form of glucose.

Since I was diagnosed I have had to check my blood sugar levels about 15,000 times; to do this I have to prick my finger and put a drop of blood onto a tiny test strip in a blood glucose testing machine.

Diabetes Domination 1

Now here is where the inspiration and my invention comes in – a MAJOR problem for diabetics is that these tiny test strips, usually no bigger than 3 or 4 cms, get ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE!  I always get into trouble for leaving my blood test strips around the house because I have to test my blood up to 10 times a day, which adds up to lots and lots of test strips. I wanted to stop other kids from getting into trouble too.

That’s where my invention came from – the DIABETIC TEST STRIP REMOVAL UNIT is an easy and hygienic way of storing the strips until you are ready to dispose of them. Blood test strips, currently with no convenient way to be disposed of, can be fed into the disposal unit directly without being touched.  How it works can be seen in the video above or at youtube.

The idea was the winner of the LittleBig Idea (I was 10 then), which won me a trip to NASA space centre in the US next year.

Now here’s where i need your help …

I’m need the funds manufacture the device in order to my invention to as many people as possible through mass production by my company Diabetes Domination (I’m the youngest CEO in Australia).

Meet the Diabetes Domination Team …. From the left there is me (William Grame), my sister Izzy, my dad Peter and my brother Jakob, and my mum Liz who took the photo.

I recently started an internship / mentoring program with Muffin Break where I get to learn the tools of the trade and meet with all department heads to better understand the business process.  This opportunity will help me realise my business ambitions by providing the expertise, tools and funds to help Diabetes Domination become fully operational for January 2016.

As you can see, I have been working very hard to make my dream come true!  I really believe that my invention will make a big difference in the life of diabetics because it has made a big difference in mine, I just need your help getting it to them.diabetes domination2

We would also appreciate if you share this crowdfunding campaign with your friends, family, and business colleagues via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.   You can also send out an email to family or friends with the campaign link. We will aim to have all the products delivered by the end of January 2016 after the campaign ends at the end of December 2015.

Note:  iPledg is an all or nothing crowd funding platform. That means if we do not reach our target we get nothing and nothing is taken from your PayPal account or credit card. Join us in developing this project with a contribution so together we can make something magnificent.   Thank You.
