This is such a worthy cause, I support my publisher, Whimsical Publications, and wanted to make others aware.

First Annual Help Find A Cure For Type 1 (Juvenile) Diabetes Event - Nov 2009 thru March 2010

Finding a cure for Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes is an important cause with Whimsical Publications.

Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes strikes children suddenly, makes them dependent on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. While diagnosis most often occurs in childhood and adolescence, it can and does strike adults as well. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.

Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.3 billion to diabetes research, including more than $156 million in FY2008. More than 85 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education. In FY2008, the Foundation funded more than 1,000 centers, grants, and fellowships in 22 countries, including nearly 40 human clinical trials.

Go to http://www. (http://www.whimsicalpublications.com) <wbr>whimsicalpublications.com (http://www.whimsicalpublications.com)
to learn how to make a donation. For that donation you will received the thanks of many children and adults with Type 1 diabetes. And you will receive a nifty colorful shoe with your name on it. If you wish to remain anonymous, simply click the appropriate box at the bottom of the donation page. If you wish the shoe to have another name, as in a person with diabetes, fill in the Message to Walker box. It's that simple.

Hopefully, forever in finding the cure won't be "forever" because of research, and JDRF. Won't you help by donating? Together, we can make the cure a reality.

Thank you very much!
