My name is Sarah. I am a high school senior in Sacramento, CA. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 10 years old. I am fortunate that I have health insurance, an insulin pump, a continuous glucose monitor, a diabetes alert dog, and a family who supports me and ensures I stay safe and healthy.

Unfortunately, not all children with diabetes live in an environment where they have access to the supplies I have. Some children don't have easy access, or access at all, to even the most essential supplies such as insulin and a blood glucose meter.

In some parts of the world, type 1 diabetes is still a death sentence.
For my final high school project, I want to raise as much money as possible for the International Diabetes Federation's Life for a Child program. This program provides insulin, supplies and education to children in developing countries where such supplies are difficult or impossible to obtain.

A dollar a day provides a single child with ongoing basics such as insulin, blood glucose monitoring equipment (meter, strips, lancets), essential clinical care, up-to-date diabetes education materials, and specialized diabetes training for medical staff.
Life for a Child supports thousands of children in dozens of countries such as Cambodia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, India, Kenya, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda and Vietnam.

The culmination of my campaign will be a concert on March 10, 2017 in which we will finalize our fundraising efforts and present the Life for a Child program with all of the funds we've earned. Please mark your calendar.

Please give generously. Your dollars will save lives. Cash donations to the IDF Life for a Child program can be made online at idf.org/lifeforachild. Just send an email to [email protected] so we can count your donation. And if you have a business, let us know and we'll add a shout out in the program!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
