I e-mailed the lady from the segment on the Today Show on Friday. She sent me the information sheets and I told her I would get the word out to our online community, so here goes:
Nationwide Luminary Lighting Event to Support Juvenile Diabetes!
What: Annual Juvenile Diabetes / Type 1 Luminary Lighting T-1 Luminary Enlightenment
When: November 5, 2008.
Where: Luminaries displayed in front of your home, visible from the road. All roads in town will be lit with luminaries.
Why: Three years ago, Harrison was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This year he has one major goal: to build awareness for the millions of people with Type 1 / Juvenile Diabetes. With awareness comes compassion for ALL of our children.
How: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and the number of luminary packs you would like to purchase. We will send you a pack of 3 luminaries and 3 tea lights for $5.00. On November 5th, place the T-1 luminary outside your house visible from the road and keep it lit in honor of National Diabetes Awareness Month. In addition, hang the Type 1 fact sheet on your front door for everyone to read and become “enlightened.” This is an easy way to show your support from the comfort of your home. You don’t need to join a walk team… climb mountains… or write a big check.
Thank you in advance for helping light the way to a cure for Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes.
This is a nationwide event. Don’t be the only street in your town not lit with luminaries.
Proceeds will go to support research aimed at finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Please send checks payable to Harrison’s Heroes T-1 Luminary Enlightenment.

Courtnie asked me to also let everyone know you can make your own luminaries if you’d like. It’s all about getting the word out. I am attaching 3 of the 4 sheets she sent me. The 4th is just what I pasted above this. Please help her out and help raise awareness for Type 1 diabetes!!
