Let’s get involved and help kids with Type I diabetes

My publisher, Whimsical Publications is a proud supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). I believe this is a noble cause that I want everyone to get involved in. That’s why I’m spreading the word that Whimsical has just kicked off its Annual JDRF Fundraising Event.

Here’s some information posted by Whimsical about why this cause is so important.

"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."
