Wednesday on CS means it’s time for Neighbors in Action, when we feature people and organizations working to make Greater Lansing a better place. Today, we hear about a non-profit in the Lansing area that raises money for research into rare diseases.  To learn more about the Life As a Zebra Foundation, we spoke with co-founder Katie Dama Jaskolski, whose own experience inspired her to help other people struggling with rare illnesses. Current State talked to Katie and first asked her how she came up with the organization’s rather unique name.

Current State is looking for more nominations for our “Neighbors In Action” feature.  Please help us out and e-mail us your suggestions to currentstate@wkar.org.  Put ‘Neighbors in Action’ in the subject line.  Or tweet us: AT KARCurrentState.   And tell us a little about why you think they should be featured for the great work they do.
