Thanks to so many amazing people, I have now officially raised more than $30,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! I can’t even believe it! What started as an idea my mom and I talked about just before school ended has become something so big and so awesome for such an important cause. Today we got a VERY generous donation from friends of my parents who have known my dad since 1994! They don’t see each other any more, but they heard about Juggling for Jude on Facebook. That is so cool! And yesterday my mom’s friend from high school donated! He says I take after my mom because she was a soccer player, but she says she could never juggle 461 times! 🙂
Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? It is extra important this month to think about kids who are fighting cancer, at St. Jude and at other places. Some day I hope that I can go to St. Jude to learn more about what they do there in person. I think that would be an amazing experience. It might be sad but it would also be really hopeful. My mom says we will make that trip happen soon. I really can’t wait!
Thank you so much for your support. Please keep spreading the word and DONATE HERE! We are collecting donations through September!
And by the way, if you haven’t heard, I want to be able to tell my story on The Ellen Show, so please share this video and tag theellenshow on Facebook and Twitter. I don’t really know what that means, but my mom told me to write that.
