Long-time Clothesline donor knows the importance of diabetes awareness

Rosemary Zugcic, 62, from Windsor, Ont., has won a $5,000 travel voucher to go anywhere in the world as the grand prize winner of Clothesline’s Where will your donation take you? campaign.

Now retired, Rosemary, enjoys long walks, reading and spending time with her two young grandchildren aged 6 and 11 months. She’s been donating her reusable goods to Clothesline for more than 15 years.

“Donating to Clotheslines is a way to recycle and reuse unwanted items and it’s convenient,” says Rosemary.

Although she does not personally know of anyone who lives with diabetes, she does know it is important to raise awareness as it’s a “devastating disease, especially if someone has to lose a limb due to complications.”

Rosemary is excited about winning and plans to travel to the Caribbean during the winter months with her prize.

Canadians can donate their gently used clothing for a chance to win a $5,000 dream vacation or one of 10 $500 VISA gifts cards as part of Clothesline’s Find your escape! campaign running until November 30, 2016. Full details along with contest rules and regulations are available at diabetes.ca/clothesline.
