I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S OVER! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED!!!! WE RAISED $32,675 for ST. JUDE HOSPITAL!

JFJFINALTHANKYOUI can’t believe my summer of JUGGLING FOR JUDE is over!  My original goal was to raise $15,000 and we actually raised $32,675! I couldn’t have done it without all of the generous people like you!

I learned so much this summer, and you can read about some of the lessons I learned in a blog post I wrote a few weeks ago.  I have changed so much from this experience. I am so proud to have raised so much money for such a great place and for the kids at St. Jude Hospital.  I am so thankful for everyone who helped.  Just because my fundraiser is over doesn’t mean you can’t donate to St. Jude Hospital. If you are thinking about doing that, you really should, because the kids at St. Jude need your help.

Some really exciting news is that St. Jude Hospital is going to take on a Juggling for St. Jude program that I’m going to help get into as many soccer clubs in the country as possible. Isn’t that so cool? My mom and I will keep you up to date when that starts in early 2015. I feel really proud that my fundraiser is going to lead to a national fundraiser at the hospital, and I can’t wait to see where that takes us!

Thank you again so much for your donations and support! I’ll NEVER forget my summer of Juggling for Jude!

Back to School! It’s Time to Reflect on Juggling for Jude. Plus, We Still Need More Donations for St. Jude Hospital. Let’s See How Close to $40,000 we can Get!

I’m going back to school tomorrow, and since my mom is a psychologist, she suggested that I take some time to reflect on my summer experience of raising money for St. Jude Hospital.  I’m not done yet! My donation page is still open till the end of September, and I plan to keep asking for donations!  But the daily juggling is done and now it’s time to get back to school.  Juggling for Jude has been a GREAT experience, and I have definitely learned a whole lot. I think I look at life in a different way now.

*I’ve learned that you can always make a change in the world.

*I’ve learned that small people can be capable of wonderful things.

*I’ve learned that I’m a good soccer juggler.

*I’ve learned that you can really do anything you set your mind to. It’s not just a quote–it’s really a true story! 🙂  (My mom likes this one the best)!

*I’ve learned that St. Jude is a great hospital and every kid should feel thankful that St. Jude exists. Even if you don’t have cancer, because they work to find cures, and really you never know what the future holds.

*I’ve learned that kids with cancer at St. Jude are the ones really doing the hard work. 

*I’ve learned that you should always set your sights and goals high.  The more you strive for, the more you will accomplish.

*I’ve learned that if you push through the hard parts in life, even when it feels really hard, there’s usually a light at the end of the tunnel.  You just have to keep with it.

*I’ve learned that there are amazing people in the world and many of them donated for Juggling for Jude. People can really come together to make a difference, and I am so lucky that people did that for my fundraiser.

Thank you for your support and your donations so far. And don’t forget, I’M NOT QUITE DONE YET!  My DONATION PAGE will stay open through the end of September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, so please donate if you can and tell ALL of your friends and family to donate.  I really think we can get closer to $40,000, and that would mean more help for the kids at St. Jude who are fighting every second of every day! So, let’s go for it!

Oh, and one last thing: I still want to be on The Ellen Show. I think it would be super fun (I mean she’s funny, and I’m funny!), and I could juggle, and we could raise more money for St. Jude. So if you know how to help make that happen, please help!

Thanks for your support!

I have now hit my summer juggling goal. Can you help me blast past my fundraising goal of $25,000?  I’d really really like to reach $30,000, because the kids at St. Jude Hospital are incredible fighters.  Before you head out to enjoy your holiday weekend, HEAD HERE TO DONATE!
