BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC)- Children's of Alabama Hospital and the Junior League of Birmingham are pushing for a new car tag in Alabama, one that would raise awareness for kids with diabetes.
The new "Hope for Kids with Diabetes" tag was unveiled Thursday morning at the hospital.
They have to get 1,000 people to pre-commit to buying the tag before the DMV will make it. Right now there are about 900 people signed up, so they just need 100 more.
The car tags are an extra $50 on top of your normal fees. Of that $50, $41 will go to the Pediatric Endocrinology Clinic at Children's of Alabama.
The clinic is currently treating about 900 patients a month. The money raised through the car tag sales will help those patients dealing with their illness.
