New Goal

2013 will be our 4th annual Acoustics for a Cure benefit concert here in Kansas City.

Acoustics for a Cure funds raised in the past have gone to JDRF and Kids With Courage, I have decided that for the 2013 concert the funding raised will be used to send at least 1 if not 2 type 1 diabetic children here in Kansas City to a week long diabetes camp.

All children that I have ever spoken with have absolutely loved going to diabetes camp because it gives them a sense of belonging, they are in a community for a week where everyone feels like them, understands their language, and can support each other.

I am really excited about this new venture that Hope for Aly is going to take in helping children who may not be able to go otherwise.

Time to get planning for a fabulous concert to raise lots of money for the kiddos :)

We are always accepting donations, if you are interested in making a donation of any kind please use the contact us page and we will gladly get back with you.

On to new and greater things but never forgetting about the diabetes education

I think this is a GREAT!, idea - so many children have not even had the oportunity to go to camp yet! I believe the insulin and supply makers should all send everyone newly diagnosed to camp without thought at least once. Proud of you for the new goal! Thank You!
