How much power does one person have? The power to make one into millions. Would you give one dollar to support the cure-focused work of the Diabetes Research Institute? We have one goal...one mission...a cure for everyone living with type one and all types of Diabetes!
My name is Jonathan Berman. I am 15 and an advocate for Type 1 Diabetes which is an auto-immune disease. I was diagnosed with T1D when I was seven. I became inspired by reading about President Roosevelt in the 1940's, and how one of the Presidents friends asked the world to donate a dime for research for Polio and send it to the White House. Everyone donated a dime! The White House was flooded with dimes. So many dimes, that it led to The March of Dimes and a Cure for Polio! It inspired me to create The Power of One and to ask everyone to donate $1. So far I've raised over $10,,000 from $1 donations, shirt sales and generous contributions. Every dollar counts and goes directly to diabetes research for a cure. Most everybody in the world is touched by a family member or friend or co-worker with one of the many different types of Diabetes. A cure is needed and keeps getting closer with continued fundraising.
Many people have joined my fundraising project called the Power of One...One Person, One Dollar, One Step Closer to a Cure. I just began asking everyone I knew (and meet) to donate $1. That's it. It may sound simple, and you might think that $1 might not make a difference. BUT, the truth is, if EVERY PERSON gave just $1, we'd be very close to funding a cure! Thank you!!!!!
Do you want to be part of the Power of One? ANYone and EVERYone can participate in being part of the cure! Donate just $1 and ask your friends, family, neighbors, etc. to donate $1 and be a part of the Power of One. If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a Power of One Ambassador, please email us at DRIpower1@gmail.com.
