Tell Your Story
"WebDriven's solution for Tell Your Story gives us a platform for cataloging compelling personal stories from volunteers working for a cure to Type I diabetes and those struggling with the disease on a daily basis. We are pleased with the 'pop' and interactivity of the Tell Your Story map plus the added benefit of the flexibility to add this feature into other JDRF websites.
As we think about how to extend Tell Your Story and other online tools to help raise awareness and encourage support for our quest for a cure, we will continue to rely on WebDriven as not only a valued partner but in many ways an extended member of our JDRF team."

Tell Your Story is a custom application featuring personal stories from children and young people battling Type I diabetes, as well as JDRF volunteers working to find a cure for the disease.
As part of our ongoing partnership with JDRF, WebDriven developed a series of online and Flash components. Children with Type I diabetes or volunteers can submit personal narratives into a moderated queue for staff review. Once published, these stories are presented in random clusters as 'bubbles' on an interactive Flash map of the United States. Clicking the name and photo 'bubble' takes the site visitor to the full story.
The application's flexible design allows JDRF staff to integrate Tell Your Story to any JDRF web property.
