Days 48 and 49: 126 and 152 Juggles. Plus the First $1,000 Donation and a Visit with a Special Baby as I Juggled!

HollisandCarterAfter my big record of 342, it turned out that my legs were tired yesterday.  My parents explained that it would be unusual to come back the day after a personal record and get another one. The good news is that getting 100 juggles is pretty much guaranteed now, but it’s still really hard work, especially when it’s hot out!  I sometimes get tired of having to do out and juggle, but I know I only have a few more days of my fundraiser, and the kids at St. Jude don’t get to choose when they stop fighting!

Today I got to meet this amazing baby named Carter. He is the son of my kindergarten teacher, and it was so great to see both of them. He is the cutest thing! He watched me juggle, but I’m not sure he even noticed! 🙂  I loved having him and his mom out there supporting me.

We are getting down to the end of my juggling.  Yesterday I got an INCREDIBLE donation from my mom and dad’s friends, Julie and Malcolm Whyte.  They donated $1,000 to help St. Jude Hospital!  $1,000! That is the highest donation yet, and I’m so appreciative!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE donate if you can. It doesn’t have to be $1,000!  Every bit helps!  You can DONATE HERE NOW! My goal is still $25,000 by the end of August. I hope you can help me get there!

Thanks for your support!

Below is an email my mom helped me copy into my blog.  It’s from the people who run a company called Central Payment, and it tells some of their sales partners all about Juggling for Jude.  But they also offered to do something so generous. They are going to give the same amount as all of their sales partners, so really it’s double money for St. Jude Hospital!  My mom says that’s called matching donations.  I am so thankful to Matt and Zach Hyman and everyone at CPay for their support of Juggling for Jude.  It’s people like them who make the world a better place.

Today I squeezed in some juggling in between camp and soccer practice.  The pressure was on!  I got 158 juggles and raced off to practice.  Only a couple of weeks left–I can’t wait to see how much money we can all raise before this ends.

Thank you for your support, and remember to DONATE HERE!

Central Payment

As a part of CPAY’s philanthropic efforts, we want to extend a special fundraising campaign, called Juggling for Jude, to the entire CPAY family for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude’s mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

CPAY will match up to $5000 per donation from our Sales Partners for this worthy cause!

Juggling for Jude was brought to our attention by Hollis Belger, the 9-year-old daughter of the owner of a local gym that many CPAY employees are members of. Hollis plays soccer for a competitive soccer club in the Bay Area and her skills in juggling are AMAZING. She has a big heart and wanted to use her soccer skills for a great cause by helping the kids at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
