One Great Idea, One Catchy Name

I got an e-mail yesterday from Monica.  Monica is 15 years old and has lived with type 1 diabetes since she was 13 months old.  Monica has a great idea, and she needs our help.

With Zip The Cure, Monica is trying to raise $100 from each zip code in the country.   With $100 from each zip code in the country she will raise $4.2 MILLION!!  All proceeds will go directly to JDRF.

I just love this idea.  It makes raising a massive amount of money sound so achievable doesn’t it?  Fantastic!  And to have a catchy name along with it?  That’s good like sugar free Jello when your blood sugar is high.

Monica needs help in a bunch of different ways.  1) Spread the word 2) Be a local volunteer and/or 3) Be a state captain 4) Donate!

You can get more information by visiting, or e-mailing Monica ([email protected]).

Zip to it!  (corny, I know – but I just had to do it…)

  1. What a great idea! I love it when a teenager shows us that anything is possible when you have determination and imagination.

  2. I was surprised the plan could raise that much money if successful. But indeed the U.S. has over 40,000 zip codes,which would yield over $4 million if every zip contributes $100.
    Good luck, Monica!

  3. Scott, I’m really glad you posted this. I got the same email and it’s at the top of my to-do list. This is a brilliant idea and has potential to gain traction. I know I’m going to donate today and hope everyone reading can support their own zip code – even if it’s just $10.
