Girlie is Chasing a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes

Plaisted Publishing House

cropped-stories-1.jpgDiabetes Type 1 and 2 are very high in Rotorua, New Zealand.  A fact I find sad about.  This is why I am now offering a children’s book for sale with proceeds going to a small local charity who are literally chasing a cure for diabetes.  They have done amazing work, and trials are the next step in their process.  Of course they need funding.  A total 1 million NZ dollars.  

Please read up about this charity and buy the book so they can start the trials and help people worldwide.  Thank you.
