As you all know, we are always trying to help to find a cure for Juvenile Diabetes. Kaci was most recently featured in the JDRF Austin Chapter newsletter in appreciation for all of the hard work she had done in preparing and stuffing the KIDS SCHOOL WALK FOLDERS! These folders are used in fundraising events at different schools in the Austin area where students are encouraged to raise money to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Here is the link were she can be seen (she is on the last page of the 4 page newsletter)
We also sent her picture in to the Wall Of Change....where she used coins to write out the amount of time that she has lived with Diabetes. At that time, it is 1/2 year! The coins we used to spell it out will be donated to JDRF.
She was also featured in the 11th Annual HOPE BALL invitation- which is a special event which raises money in hopes of finding a cure.( I have attached that picture as well) This year's Hope Ball will feature spectacular silent and live auctions, Buckets of Hope, fabulous entertainment by Rotel and the Hot Tomatoes, great food, and much more - all to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.
"Kaci~I am so proud of you for all you do to help find a cure for Diabetes. I know that it will help both of us!! So here is what I want to offer you!! For every Dollar you raise during the month of April, I will match it, and we can donate to JDRF! BUT...you cannot get more than a $1 from every person.That means Mom can donate $1, Dad can donate $1, etc....and I will match every dollar you collect. So keep a list of every person that gives you a $1, and we will add them up at the end of April!!Does this sound like a deal?? Let me know!!I love you VERY VERY much!!!Uncle Chad"
So now, we send this email to you in hopes that you can help us! Can you donate some of your spare change - or even a $1 to help us find a cure? All of the money donated will be given to JDRF in October at the annual walk! If you need to mail your $1, please send them Attention: Kaci Borchgardt
