It’s Time to Give to St. Jude

It’s September and that means it’s time for the annual Relay St. Jude Fundraiser. St. Jude’s mission is simple: Take care of children with life-threatening diseases and do it for free. That’s right. This is a charity that takes care of kids with cancer and doesn’t bankrupt their parents in the process. 

Relay’s goal this year is nearly $500,000. If they can hit that number, it will make the total contribution over the past several years over $2M. This year Relay even has some fun swag if you donate.

Every year Daisy and I save to make a St. Jude donation and I can tell you it feels pretty great pushing that button. This year was strange since I quit my big boy job, but we still stave enough to donate the value of an Apple Watch Ultra. The thing is, however, if everyone that reads this post would give just $5, it would eclipse my donation. That’s right. If all of you skip Starbucks tomorrow and give $5 to St. Jude, you can save some lives. Why not?

The Relay Family Feud and Trophy Giveaway

The Relay Fifth Anniversary live show was a lot of fun. You can watch the video below. Since my team came out victorious, I find myself in possession of a precious trophy, one of only five in the world. I have, however, decided to part with it. As you may know, Relay has partnered with St. Jude to help them raise money to take care of sick children. I’m going to give my extremely rare and valuable trophy to whoever makes the biggest contribution to St. Jude between the time of this post and midnight Pacific on September 13. If you want to be considered, send me proof and write “Trophy Contest” in the email subject line. I’ll pay for shipping, so long as you are not on the moon. Wouldn’t this look nice on your desk?
