Local Change: ZiptheCure

Monica's zip code is 15243. She's confident she can raise $100 for diabetes research from everyone she knows in her own zip code. But here's the brilliant realization Monica had: if a 15 year old like her could accomplish this simple thing, why couldn't someone in every zip code do it too? This is the cool idea behind her website ZipTheCure.com She's created an online fundraising tool to allow each US zip code to commit $100 towards finding a cure for diabetes.

If Monica gets full participation from every zip code, she'll raise around $4 Million for JDRF... and she'll do it $100 at a time, one zip code at a time. It's easy. It's simple. It's important.

I just sponsored my zip code today. And I did it without any stamps.
