For over half a century, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been “leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.” This nonprofit makes sure families with kids facing devastating cancer diagnoses can focus on receiving the treatment they need without having to worry about the costs associated with it. They believe that children should have access to quality, life-saving care, regardless of their family’s financial situation. And that’s where you come in.
Here are a few of the ways kids and teens can make a difference in the lives of St. Jude families:
Dedicate Your Birthday
Create your birthday page and share it with friends and family so they can contribute to your cause in lieu of, or in addition to, gifts.
Start a School Fundraiser
From Team Up for St. Jude to the St. Jude Prom Challenge, pretty much any type of event where friends and classmates gather makes for a great fundraising opportunity.
Participate in an Event
Hey, it’s called FUNdraising for reason. From the St. Jude Math-A-Thon to horse trail rides and road races, to car rallies and martial arts events, the possibilities to get involved are endless. Use the event finder to see what’s coming up in your region or you can even create your own.
Provide fun activities to patients and explore careers in healthcare with the Volunteen program. Your time, talents and friendly smile may be the most valuable thing you can give.
Schedule’s already stacked, but have a few dollars to spare? No amount is too small.
shawn is awsome
this is such an inspirational project
These kids have really great people helping them out and knowing that everyone is living on hope in that hospital.
I think these things are great. But would if you were only a 6th grader how can I help then? Ive been trying to find ways but most are for teens or adults.
I think it is good that there is someone there to help you if you need it.
These makes me cry, because it these kids are having a fight for their lives, and these ways help them all.
