Group projects: We need to organize some groups to do these things. Of course you can do more than one, but we need to delegate here.
1. Raise $ for the kids in Honduras
2. Send letters to help Salman in the United Arab Emerates
3. Send emails and letters to Oprah to support Jay's efforts.
4. Help Evie by sending what she needs for Day in the Life Video
5. We need each of us to have a quilt square for the Quilt for Life.

shabaaz220 (my real name is harry from CA and AZ) from 66.119.33.135
yeah and shes obnoxious, a lot of people i know dont like her and think shes wrong about everything, it could hurt us to go on her show, but it could also be good to get the word out. So its a risk worth taking, i think

Tue Jan 14 2003 21:20:54 Eastern US
Michi (19, type 1, dx'd 3/02, pumping) from 67.32.49.195

Erin, it is called A Day in Your Life, it is a video documentry put together by the people that it effects. I would like people to send pictures of themselves with a little bit of written informatio, or make small video tapes talking about their diabetes.

Tue Jan 14 2003 21:22:38 Eastern US
Evie Taylor from 198.81.27.14
By haveing the people with diabetes explaining the illness, the greater public can see the diversty and get rid of the many stero types of it being an older person illness alone

Laura B (CWD Events) from 68.43.235.39
A lot of parents have written to Oprah as well - no answer. I've been on CWD for almost 5 years and this idea keeps getting resurrected... perhaps with the teen involvement you'll have more success. I'd try different avenues, though. Don't put a ton of effort into Oprah when there are so many other venues for your energy...

Laura B (CWD Events) from 68.43.235.39
I want to bring up something else... conference-related. The Orlando conference is 6 months off, and CWD is donating a table in the exhibit hall for IDYA to have information, talk to teens and parents, share what you're doing, etc. We'll need IDYAs to staff the table during the busy times (snack breaks, breakfast, the Weds night reception). I'd just like to put a bug in the ears of those who might be going! :-) I think Carolyn and Sam could probably coordinate the "staffing" times.

Also, here's a point: You know how there's research getting started in Jordan at the moment? Queen Rania there is part of this "Say Yes to Childfren" thing at Unicef.. but she's still not done anything about diabetes in the region, even tho she's been after discrimination in schools. When she starts on about public awareness about anything, people here tend to listen. If we mentioned in any of our letters that we'd be going to the UN to speak out anyway, she'd want in... teh sheikh doesn't have an actual address

Hey, it's really important for all of you - as Clare mentioned - to get a quilt square done. If your mom doesn't sew, you can get pre-made "blank" quilt squares that you can decorate yourself with paints, markers, iron-on stuff - you can even make iron on transfers from your favorite photos and put them on the quilt squares.

Yes Lauren, here in the US some schools may not encourage the use of a 504 plan. In other countries there are different laws, so in some places most certainly.

504 isn't a type of pump. :) it's a plan to help kids with disabilities in schools. it's an agreement between the school and the student as to certain rights.

Tue Jan 14 2003 21:50:44 Eastern US
Clare Rosenfeld (16 years old; IDYA) from 67.250.153.129

A 504 is a health plan that parents request and they state the guidelines that the school must follow in taking care of your diabetes. So, testing at certain times (and in certain places), taking glucose when needed, not taking tests if bg is above or below a certain level, etc. It's legal protection. Some school systems don't like 504's because they spell out what needs to be done and they don't necessarily want to do it. But if they don't follow the 504, they are breaking the law. In a nutshell.

Dana from 24.214.196.75
clare, i did some research with the local chapters of different diabetic offices around where i live, and there are NO support groups!!!!!! i was extremely surprised, and am going to start a support group for my area as soon as possible, and tell everyone about how even though I didn't have a support group of any kind, IDYA was my support group!!!:)

Um, one more thing I'm going to ask anyone who can to please do: Write to our local paper at , on the "opinion" link at the left of the main page and then hit "letters to the editor"... could someone who knows a 12 year old please get them to write in and tell people what a normal 12 yr old diabetic is allowed to do at school and what they do to control their diabetes? No one here really believes us when we try to tell them what should go into diabetes car for my lil bro. Even the doctors say test twice a day, and so on.... Hey krissy!!! :)

Laura B (CWD Events) from 68.43.235.39
Debbie Stabenow and David Bonior didn't write back? You and I - and Sam and Carolyn - need to work on this (I'm in MI, too). Let's put our heads together and make a dent (not in our heads).

Dana from 24.214.196.75
uh, i thought it was necessary for legal permission too...not really sure. i think if someone is submitting the tape to you, and you are not taking the tape of them yourself, it would be fine as long as they knew what they were submitting it too. that makes sense to me!

Tue Jan 14 2003 21:59:11 Eastern US
