The Problem

I am going to solve the problem of Type 1 Diabetes. There are 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, who have diabetes. The total prevalence of diabetes increased 13.5% from 2005-2007. Only 24% of diabetes is undiagnosed, down from 30% in 2005 and from 50% ten years ago.

Plan of Action

My project is still underway. My intent is to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by holding a party where I will sell homemade earrings, bracelets, bath products, candles, headbands, pushpins, original photography prints amongst other similar things. So far I have made numerous earrings, bracelets, and candles and I have the photography ready to be printed.
