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 810-824

Cranes 810-814 are all Tawnya

Cranes 815-819 are John

Cranes 820-824 are also John

This week has been busy.  We've been practicingfor Florida writing tests all week.  I think I did good on the test.  Then there was Hebrew school and yearbook club.  My friend is coming tomorrow to stay the weekend so she can go to a Purim party with me.  I have started to string all the Cranes together.  There is so many of them.  On March 29th I'm presenting them to the local JDRF meeting with a check for $1,000.00.  I can't wait!  But, just because I've reached my goal, doesn't mean we don't need to keep raising money.  We still need a cure for Diabetes!  The link on the right takes you to our team Walk for a Cure that we are doing on May 12th.  Even if it's only a dollar, every little bit helps.  Thanks!
