Or just make a couple of bucks for St. Jude.
I’m registered for the Memphis St. Jude marathon in December, and raising some serious money to support their mission.
If you are not aware, St. Jude is one of the top children’s cancer research and treatment hospitals on the planet. With the support of contributors like you they are able to treat children living with cancer completely for free. On top of that they are making tremendous strides in treating cancer, developing treatments that reduce pain and longer term effects, and that work to make treatment occur in as short a time as possible, so children can return to their families and their lives.
I was inspired to run for St. Jude from seeing the results of what it has done for a friend.
But, you must agree with me, fundraisers are just fun. Anyone who listens to NPR knows this.
And what do we love most about NPR fundraisers?
(This is a screenshot I took of my donate button. It wasn’t supposed to look like that.)
Unfortunately I gave away most of my totebags, and only have a few CDs of “The Best of a Celtic Sojourn” remaining from a particularly enthusiastic pledge drive a few years back.
But never to fear. I have several premiums that I can offer to donors who are willing to part with any dollar amount to help with St. Jude’s goals.
Take a look:
So what do you say? Get cracking! Drop a few dimes my way, and cash in on one of those amazing treats!
