The JDRF Game2Give program created by JDRF is teaming up with Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the Insulet Company (which created the Omnipod insulin pump) to create Omnipod Bay – an island that displays the realities of those living with type 1 diabetes. On the island, players can explore, solve a maze, and sing at a concert. Omnipod Bay also features a hidden code that will reward players with a secret prize once solved. There’s also clothing to be won, including outfits with insulin pumps and diabetes bags included, as well as pieces featuring multiple advocacy groups.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is known for its mostly wholesome and creative community (even with the creation of an evil lair used to end a hated animal crossing NPC) and with the appearance of Omnipod Bay, players can now come together and learn more about type 1 diabetes. The island also allows people living with the condition to wear clothing inspired by what they wear outside of the game. Omnipod Bay can be accessed by sleeping in the game and entering the Dream Code DA-9645-5879-6910. On launch day, Twitch streamers involved in the community hosted a charity broadcast, and JDRF invites others to host Omnipod Bay-themed charity streams to raise $15,000 for type 1 diabetes awareness. It is essential that the condition be represented and JDRF Game2Give strives to provide this representation in video games.
