Score for St. Jude Update

A note from Danielle Smith, Development Specialist at St. Jude:

Hello CBHL! We are onto Week 4 of Score for St. Jude! Time is flying by and you all are rocking it! I want to say Thank You to each and every person that is a part of this program, you are truly amazing!

We are sitting right at $30,000 committed to the Kids at St. Jude. This week, I encourage you to share your fundraising pages on social media, in email and any other platforms you use. Encourage your friends and family to donate/pledge and also share your post so it reaches more people! I also encourage you to share with your children why this is so important and encourage them so that they WANT to help! Tell them how even a small amount can help! Below are some examples of how a little can go a long way:

- $3 Help provide pediatric isolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems.
- $10 Help provide a new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities.
- $36 Help provide a St. Jude family with meals for one day in the Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria.
- $57 Help provide necessities for parents who may have hurriedly left home after their child’s diagnosis.
- $100 Help provide a platelet count test for two patients: Platelet counts are among the tests doctors use to monitor patient health during treatment.
- $250 Help provide a meal card for a St. Jude family for one week: St. Jude provides patients and their families with meal cards for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Kay Kafe, the hospital’s cafeteria.

Also, I encourage you to watch this video about patient Matthew. It helps to give some perspective and is a reminder of why we are doing this. (If you feel your child is mature enough to watch after seeing it yourself, feel free to share with them)

I would like to give a shout out again to all of our clubs and teams participating! You are all doing so awesome and your efforts are not going unnoticed. No matter what amount your team is bringing in, you are making a difference.
