Your Donation at Work!

Scott Benner

The JDRF does more then diabetes research and education. They also lobby our representatives on behalf of diabetics.  Their program (JDRF Advocacy) has been working tirelessly this year to ensure Congress voted to extend the ‘Special Diabetes Program’...

I’m thrilled to tell you that it was passed today by Congress and is fully expected to be signed by the President when it reaches his desk!!!  The program faced a 35% reduction had the bill not passed.  

JDRF Advocacy isn’t planning to rest after this victory.  

From the JDRF:

“You should also know that our job is not finished, and we will all need to return after the holidays with a renewed focus to work with Congress in 2008 to complete the job of securing a multi-year extension for the SDP so that the dollars can be spent in the most effective way.”

In a very real way the $10, $50 or $100 dollars you donated helped secure 150 million dollars in aid.

Other News:

The JDRF recently released the 2007 walk totals for our area.  The Philadelphia and Bucks County sites raised a combined 1.7 million dollars.  I wanted to thank you all one more time for your efforts.  Last year we helped raise $1,800 and this year $8,311... who knows what we’ll be able to do in 2008!

Thank you!
