Two health charities that help those with juvenile (type 1) diabetes and autism will hold fundraising campaigns on Monday.  At the big Maccabi Petah Tikva vs Maccabi Haifa game, all the players will wear t-shirts with the number 12, representing the average number of times daily an insulin-dependent diabetic must use a needle for testing blood sugar and giving himself insulin. The audience in the stadium will be invited to donate to the Juvenile Diabetes Association, which helps patients. Donations can also be given by sending a message “10” to telephone number 1222 by SMS to contribute NIS 10 to the cause.

Meanwhile, ALUT, the Israel Association for Autistic Children, is raising funds to help the one out of 100 children born with this developmental and communications disorder. The number of diagnosed children is rising, according to the organization, which promotes research into the disease and provides special help to families.

Donations can be handed to any of thousands of schoolchildren who are collecting for ALUT and at shops displaying its sign or by sending an SMS marked “10” to telephone number 5333 to make an NIS 10 donation.
