So I belong to a cake decorating group on facebook. One lady posted there is a fundraiser for a 9 year old boy with brittle diabetes. Baked goods are needed for a fundraiser. Really cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. I know they sell but couldn't they find something else to sell.

I'm brittle diabetic. We can eat sweets, in moderation, as should anyone else. Its a misconception that diabetics cannot have sugar. Hell, when my blood sugar is low I NEED sugar. It's about carbohydrates overall, not just sugar.

I hope he gets the help he needs. I wonder why they need a fund raiser. Does he not have insurance? Did the parents have to take time off/quit work?

I asked about it, They're trying to raise funds to get the boy a service dog. I donated fruit and muffins.

I can see both sides of this... It's an easy to organize fundraiser and the profits are often huge, but as a reactive hypoglycemic, I think Really?  I know whenever I'm asked to purchase at one of these I make a donation, but don't want the baked goods - maybe that's the goal.
