It is said that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish.
I want to take this time to feature a very special little girl. Her name is Lizzie, she is 9 years old.
You see her little sister has to have her sugar levels checked in fear of diabetes. After hearing the news of a close friend who was diagnosed with Diabetes Lizzie decided she wants to help, raise money to find a cure.
For every dollar that is donated to Cranes 4 a Cure Lizzie will make a crane and put the name of the person who donated on the wing. Once she has collected $1000 she will string all the cranes together and give it to the Juvenile Diabetes foundation with all the money she has raised.
If you'd like to donate, please visit Cranes 4 a Cure or for more information you can email Lizzie's mommy, Jenny, at email@example.com.
Please take a few minutes to watch Lizzie's Interview:
