Concepting

Our Concepting phase has concluded. We took everything we learned during the Inspiration phase and used those insights to develop our own creative ideas to address the challenge question. Check out the fresh thinking and head over to the current phase to join our collaborative efforts.

For this challenge we  offered to donate $10 to the International Diabetes Federation for every concept submitted from the start of our fundraiser until the phase ends.  Read more about our offer here.  The total raised was $ 2420, fab work!

We all have a lot of things to juggle in life- family, friends, career; our health. And everything has its balance and it’s when we have too much of one thing and not enough of another that it really takes its toll on our state of well-being.
