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 261-270

I am back! Daddy got his camera back so mommy has hers again. I am going to post more cranes then I normally do each day so I can get caught up.
Cranes 261-263 are Caleb, Russ and Billy.

Cranes 264-265 are Giulia and Aydin.
Cranes 266-268 are Dona, David and John.

Cranes 269-270 are Barbara and Big.
Last week we went on vacation. We've never really gone on a vacation before. It was a lot of fun. We went to Tennessee. We stayed in a cabin in the Smokey Mountains. This is me on the tram up to Ober Gatlinburg. It was like a little amusement park at the top of the mountain.
Me and Emily rode the ski lift up even higher.

Jack rode the water slide with me.

We also got to drive around The Smokey Mountain National Park and saw two black bears. That was really neat. Mommy is going to post more pictures on her blog later. I wish we could go back someday.
Thank you to everyone who has donated, we are very close to our goal!
