This year is the 50th anniversary of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. In 1962, Danny Thomas opened the doors to the hospital that is now considered one of the most cutting-edge facilities for childhood disease in the world. What sets St. Jude apart is its no refusal policy towards children that need its care. No family is ever turned away based on race, religion or ability to pay for treatment.
If you are able this holiday season, consider making a donation in honor of the healthy kids in your life. You can do this right on this St. Jude page.
Blogger Maura, also the owner of the Pretty Colleen Etsy shop, has designed a specialty bracelet for the golden anniversary of St. Jude and is donating a portion of the proceeds directly to the hospital. If you are looking for a way to buy a meaningful and beautiful gift this Christmas, this is a way to do it. We are also giving away one in a giveaway that ends at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 13th. You can enter that giveaway below. Buying a bracelet earns you 10 (!!!) entries.
