Send a Rufus
Buy a JDRF Send a Rufus gift and help bring a smile to a newly diagnosed child by making sure they have a Rufus bear to hug.
When first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes it can be a lonely time, especially if you are little and can’t understand what is going on. That’s why we have Rufus, the bear with type 1 diabetes. Rufus is a great friend to newly diagnosed children, he offers comfort and gives them someone to share their experience with. His felt patches help children learn where to test and inject.
How does it work?
Select and order your gift. We will send you a Send a Rufus pack containing a card with a brief description of the gift and an envelope. You can then personalise and send your gift to your friend or loved one.
