Each year in May, JDRF host Jelly Baby Month, a fun campaign to raise awareness and funds to support vital medical research. The campaign is an enjoyable fundraising activity and offers a great educational experience. The success of this campaign is dependent on support from schools, dedicated volunteers and our retail partners Woolworths and Safeway supermarkets, and Amcal and Amcal Max pharmacies. Thank you for your support!
Jelly Baby Month is different ...
Jelly Baby Month is different as it was founded by Mums. 15 years ago a group of parents whose children have type one diabetes decided they wanted to make a direct impact on funding research. In the first year they produced a badge that quickly sold out and Jelly Baby Month was born.
Today Jelly Baby Month raises over $1 million with the funds raised supporting Australian type 1 diabetes research projects. Learn more about the latest JDRF research projects.
Lucy is representing Jelly Baby Month this year. Lucy is six years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes one year ago. Lucy loves dancing, swimming and playing with her sisters. This autoimmune disease has a big impact on Lucy's health and it can be devastating. Your support of Jelly Baby Month will make a difference.
