How it began…

On October 12, 2012 we published a video on YouTube, simply to raise awareness and funds for Type 1 Diabetes research. What happened next was both unexpected and wonderful. As the number of views increased, our children quickly came up with a way to say ‘thank-you’ for all of the people taking the time to watch our video and learn more about Type 1 Diabetes.  After their creative storm, they decided that we would send out a “heart” for every view. Simple and perfect. The heart would be a gentle reminder that more often than not, it is the little things that we do that make the biggest impact.

“100 Hearts” was born out of gratitude… and in return it has given our family an opportunity to raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes and to practice daily acts of kindness. We continue on our journey, advocating, teaching and sharing. We hope that you will stop by often and learn more about Type 1 Diabetes and our family’s past and present experiences.

Some might say our ‘hearts’ are simple. That is our intention. Gestures do not need to be grand to be effective. We hope you agree.

    Wonderful! Logan, you are so courageous–not only because you deal with this every day, but also because you are willing to talk about it. Thank you!! And Zoe, your heart is very big for you to be such a partner with Logan. It hits hard when you mention that half the kids in your family have T1D. That’s quite a stat. Thanks for sharing.
