Helping St. Jude's

With today being the first day of December, I was originally going to have a post today about Smokes and Booze related Christmas Gifts.

That all changed this morning when James gave me his entry form for the St. Jude's Math-a-thon.

Math-A-Thon is a volunteer-based fundraising program for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The program includes a fun, free curriculum supplement featuring comic book characters for grades K-8.

Yes, you read that right – James is volunteering to do extra work in school to help raise money to help kids.

SAM_0179As you may know, James lost his brother Joey in 2008 to Cancer.  Several times in the past, he offered his own money or volunteered to help Cancer Research, and this has become his pet project.

Last year, James raised over $750 for this same cause, and now he has set a higher goal of $1000.  If you know me, when my son sets a goal, I will do whatever it takes to help him attain it.

Personally, I understand this is the holiday season and times are tough.  All you need to do is pick up a newspaper and see how people all over the US/World are struggling.  But as I sit here and think about it….this is the perfect time to think of this, as we can all agree…Christmas is a time of giving, and you can never go wrong when giving to kids.

If you would like to help us try to make a difference, you can visit James’ St Jude’s Page HERE  and make a donation.  If you can’t afford to help….please share the link or Facebook, Tweet it or just use “old fashioned” Email.  Get the word out.  It’s all we ask.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read this.  We appreciate it.

Cheers -

Ed, Debi and James.
