November is a special time of year for SleekSleeves as we take the time to bring awareness to the diabetes community. Our core mission, to support individuals facing medical challenges and bring fashion to medical device coverage, has brought us together with the diabetes community. SleekSleeves offers comfortable fashion coverage for both OmniPods and CGM sites.
The continuous stream of inspirational messages we receive from those with diabetes and other chronic conditions is nothing short of spectacular. We’re proud to be a part of the discussion and know that we’re helping those who with medical conditions like diabetes on a daily basis to Look Good and Feel Better.
The “Get Sleek in Support of Diabetes” collection, which features some of our favorite blue and red patterns, launched on November 1st. 10% of the proceeds from now until November 30th will benefit the American Diabetes Association. We’re proud to support an organization that has brought over 75 years of progress to diabetes education, research, and support.
In addition to the collection, we’re also excited for a special giveaway with our friends from Lauren's Hope, in honor of World Diabetes Day on Saturday, November 14th. The giveaway will start at noon EST on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sleeksleeves).
We launched the #WearABand initiative in October, which is a movement to highlight ways individuals in the chronic illness community can offer and receive support. From wearing an arm band to help you look good while on your medical journey, or purchasing them for others undergoing treatment, spheres of support are virtually everywhere. Let’s rally together!
We’ll announce 10 winners on Sunday, November 15 at noon. Winners will receive a pattern of their choice from the “Get Sleek in Support of Diabetes” collection, AND a $25 gift certificate to Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry!
This giveaway has concluded. THANK YOU to everyone who participated and shared their story with us. A special congratulations to the 10 winners below who will receive a SleekSleeves Arm Band + a $25 gift certificate to Lauren's Hope Medical ID Jewelry!

She always tells me that it "didn't hurt," even when I can see the pain in her face, just so it doesn't hurt my feelings. Thanks for your product, it's nice to give her something pretty and fun to wear."
