Help to Cure Diabetes with Google Maps

Zip The Cure

16 year old Monica Oxenreiter has so far raised $57,000 to help fund research to find a cure for juvenile diabetes. Her ingenious idea to raise money involves selling zip codes on a Google Map for $100.

The map designed by John Coryat, allows anyone to click on their location to see if their zip code has been bought yet. Of course if someone has already given in your zip code you can choose another zip code area. The zip code areas where someone has already donated are shaded green. Zip codes still available are shaded yellow.

Once you have donated your generous support will be shown on the map. Whenever someone searches for your zip code area they will be shown that you have already donated.
