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 91-93

Cranes 91 - 93 are Cathy (she has diabetes) Laurie and Billy. Thank you.
My interview was tonight on the news. It was so weird seeing myself on t.v., but if it gets it out there that we need a cure, I'll be weird looking anytime.
Tomorrow my friend Cheyenne is coming over to spend the night, we always have so much fun.

This is what I spent my weekend doing. My daddy took us to a cabin after school got out on Thursday. We went fishing. We had smores. I went on a sailboat, it was a lot of fun. We even hiked and saw Indian mounds. Last week I also got a new necklace. It's a skate with the word BEST on it. My friend Caity sent it to me. I miss her a lot. She said she might move back here, I hope she does. She's got another skate with the word FRIEND on it.

This is Allison, Becca and me on top of the treehouse we helped my daddy make bigger. My daddy says we can go back this summer and make it even bigger. I can't wait!
