With Christmas now being over, it is time for us to play with our toys and enjoy some the nice gifts we received from family and friends. While the marketing part of Christmas may be over, however, we are still in the 12 days of Christmas for those who are religious. This means you still have time to celebrate by spending time with friends, family, and also giving back to those who are in need. While I give quite a bit to the poor and in need, I also love to spend this time of year donating to other charities. One especially is very close to my heart and somewhere where I donate a bit each year – St Jude's Children's Hospital.
Most of us know St. Jude's as a cancer hospital for children, but no one truly understands the depth of care and commitment this hospital has for their patients until you have dealt with it personally. While it wasn't someone in my immediate family who stayed at St Jude's Children Hospital, it was a very dear friend to me, who lost his battle with leukemia during my 2nd year of middle school. Thinking about it, it is hard to believe that he has been gone for 13 years, but he asked if anything happened, that people please be nice to the people at the hospital, who though the world of him and his practical-joking attitude. Thinking of him, I don't know how I couldn't donate every year to the hospital. If even some of my money may make the difference of ending childhood cancer, why not?
For St Jude, this is the time of year that they really depend on donations and hope that they can help others while getting money to help cancer research and children in the hospital. Until the end of the year, you can take advantage of the St Jude Thanks & Giving campaign. In this campaign, they are working with many well known companies, including Target, Pottery Barn, Dominos, and other well known retailers to allow people to buy special items in-store or on their website that help raise money for this awesome cause. For each item sold in this collection, 50% of the retail price goes to the hospital, allowing them to continue the awesome services they provide for families in the form of research and care.
If you have some extra money from Christmas (or are hoping to get a tax write-off before the end of the year), I highly recommend checking out the awesome items available as part of the St Jude Thanks & Giving campaign. Once you have seen the awesome ornaments, toys, home items, and other amazing for items sold as part of this campaign, you will see why others are planning on making some of their after-Christmas purchases at St Jude's Children's Hospital!
