A huge thank you to Emma for raising $1,000 for the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes by selling her hand-painted railroad spikes! This year is Emma's 4th diaversary and also the 40th anniversary of the BDC, so Emma wanted to give back and help others while having fun. With the help of many friends and family, Emma was able to raise $1,000 in less than 6 months! As hand painted spikes are being mailed all across the United States, Emma has more than doubled her original $500 goal and orders are still coming in! Thank you for your support, Emma and great job!
