f the ways he "gives back" to fans. He and his brothers, Kevin and Joe, started the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation through which they donate funds to several causes including pediatric diabetes research, education and treatment.

"When Nick talks about diabetes, people listen. And until there is a cure, the greatest weapon against diabetes is increased awareness and knowing how to manage it," said Nancy Katz, head of North America for Bayer Diabetes Care. "That includes working with a health care professional for guidance on regular monitoring of blood sugar and A1C levels, proper diet and exercise and having a positive attitude to achieve every day simple wins."

Since the announcement of their partnership last year, Bayer and Nick have taken many steps to inspire young people with diabetes to achieve their simple wins: small, everyday victories for managing diabetes that can lead to big differences over time.

In recognition of his efforts in raising diabetes awareness over the past year, Bayer presented Nick with another $100,000 donation to the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation to support its ongoing commitment to pediatric diabetes.

In August 2008, announcing the start of their partnership with Nick, Bayer presented the Jonas Brothers with a $100,000 donation for their foundation. In the interim, Nick and Bayer created special dog tags, like the one Nick wears featuring a lyric from his song, "A Little Bit Longer." Proceeds from the sales of the dog tags benefit the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation. The dog tags are available through www.NicksSimpleWins.com for a donation of $5. Since the dog tag program launched in November 2008, it has raised an additional $75,000 for the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation.
