I like origami and drawing, and littlest pet shop. I love Hello Kitty too.
I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. My little sister Becca gets her finger poked sometimes to make sure her sugar level is ok. My mommy has some friends whose kids are sick with diabetes, and I wanted to do something to help, so my mommy and I came up with the Cranes 4 a Cure. I want to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. My sister is lucky, she doesn't have diabetes, but a lot of kids do, and it isn't fair. Anyone can get juvenile diabetes, you don't have to have a family history. I think they need to find a cure fast so the kids who have it can be needle free, I don't like needles.
So I guess you want to know what Cranes 4 a Cure is.
It is said that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. Sometimes relatives or friends fold the cranes for someone who has an illness in hopes for recovery or a long life.
My goal is to raise $1,000.00. For every dollar I raise, I am going to make an origami crane and put the name of the person who sent me that dollar on the wing. Then I am going to string all the cranes together and give it to the juvenile diabetes foundation with all the money I raise. Then my wish will be to find a cure. Please help me help those kids with this bad disease. My mommy says she will take a picture of every crane I make and post it here for everyone to see. For more information, please email my mommy, her name is Jenny. A dollar isn't a lot, but it can make a difference. I hope to get some pictures of kids you can help soon.

I think I need to take a picture with all the cranes again. There is a lot of them. Mommy says to tell you if you want to get involved with JDRF you can contact Kathleen at (617) 633 - 0027 or email@example.com. Thanks to everyone's help, I'm at $901.00 raised for T1 Diabetes research. We need to find a cure. I'm not going to stop once I reach $1,000.00...you shouldn't either.

If you are in the Mobile Alabama area this weekend, and you want to support Diabetes Research, you can go to The Fresh Market. It’s holding its “Hope Floats” Sidewalk Sale on September 9 through September 11, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. There will be root beer floats, hot dogs and ice cream sundaes each for a $2 donation and gourmet cookies each for a $1 donation. Sugar-free root beer floats and sundaes are also available. The Fresh Market will donate 100 percent of the money raised over the three-day sale of these items directly to JDRF to support its mission to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications. I think we are going to try to go on Sunday. It sounds like a lot of fun.
I also wanted to let you know what we are up to with money raised for Cranes4aCure. $881.00. that is a lot of money (my chip in only shows online donations) Thank you to everyone who has helped so far.
