My name is Lizzie, I'm 10 years old and in the 4th grade.
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.
Thank you.

Cranes 84-86

Cranes 84, 85 and 86 are Mrs. Daniels...she comes to my class every week with her dog and we read stories to her. Mrs. Vicki, she's the media specialist and Drew, he's one of the boys in my class. Thank you.
I'm sorry I was not on last week. Mommy and daddy got really sick with food poisoning. After 3 days they were better. Thursday night I got sick, I felt good enough to go to school Friday, but mommy wanted to make sure so I stayed home and missed the read-a-thon. That made me sad.
But today was a good day! I went to Church with my friend Cheyenne. We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about a different religion. Then her daddy took us to subway for lunch. Then we walked around the mall and went to where she lives and went swimming. I like swimming and can't wait to go back. Oh and I lost another tooth. Now I'm missing both front teeth.
