    I could have used this about 5 weeks ago when we started planning (our walk was Sunday). Oh well.

    Just to let you know, this is NOT owned or operated by JDRF. According to their website, they do give 15% to the Iowa Chapter, however.

    Thanks for the clarification, just saw that when looking again at the site.
    At least they give something back though.

    I agree! I wasn't bashing them at all - just wanted people to be aware that it wasn't JDRF. :)

    there are other states/chapters that have stores, too. I ordered the round magnet from one in Tenn. I think.

    Very true, but this website isn't a JDRF store for a local chapter. It is a private company that gives 15% of your purchase price to their local JDRF chapter. Again, I'm not bashing it, just making sure that people are aware that not all of their money is going to JDRF, just 15%. :cwds:

    I ordered car magnets with the JDRF tennis shoe and it say's "find a cure for Harrison". You can choose your color and what it says on the shoe.:D
