Why are you in nonprofit work?

Again, my kids and I have a soft spot for children who suffer from illnesses. My husband and daughter both have Type 1 Diabetes, diagnosed when they were 8 and 4 years old. We began fundraising for Type 1 research, but I wanted to teach my girls that although we want to find a cure for ourselves and our family, there are others who suffer as well and we need to do what we can to help everyone.
