9 Year Old Lizzie  With a Word About Cranes for a Cure …


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.

Thank you,


If you  share Lizzie’s website and fundraiser with your blog readers or others, she would love to know about it!
