Donate Now – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

We Support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

In the words of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas: “No child should die in the dawn of life.”

How do these donations help?

  • Thanks to donations, St. Jude families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.
  • Donations also help St. Jude cover other costs a family typically incurs while their child is being treated at the hospital, including travel, housing and food.
  • At St. Jude, donor dollars help fuel the groundbreaking research that leads to pioneering care and treatments for childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.

How is St. Jude making a difference for sick children?

  • Every child saved at St. Jude means children saved around the world—a direct result of cutting-edge research and treatment that set the standard in treating childhood cancers. And our discoveries are shared freely with doctors and scientists all over the world.
  • St. Jude developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent, when the hospital opened in 1962, to 80 percent today.
  • St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute.
  • St. Jude has embarked on an unprecedented effort to sequence the pediatric cancer genome and to identify the genetic changes that give rise to some of the world’s deadliest childhood cancers.

How are donations used?

  • During the past five years, 81 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We gratefully acknowledge your support of StJude Children’s Research Hospital.

2011 Operation “Magic tree ”

Operation “Magic tree ” seeks to lift morale and put smiles on the faces of our troops  this holiday season by giving 10,000-15,000 soldiers  a present that reminds them of home and lets them know we are thinking of them and appreciate their service. Hungry Heart Children’s Ministry International is raising donations to send “Magic tree ” packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm’s way. Each package will contain a personal letter written from a child, a magic snow tree that starts out as a green evergreen that magically grows snow over night and a holiday card, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.

Whole Child International

Vision

On behalf of institutionalized children throughout the world, Whole Child International 
is committed to the application of the most advanced knowledge and sophisticated research
 to childcare in orphanages and other institutions - on a global scale.

We know that orphanages and other institutions can be dramatically improved at relatively
 small cost. We focus our work on caregivers, teaching and implementing three basic 
childcare principles - primary caregiving, continuity of care, and small groups.

• Primary caregiving ensures that each child has the opportunity to create a meaningful attachment 
with one particular adult caregiver.

• Continuity of care means that this primary relationship is maintained for as long as possible, ideally
 until a permanent solution of adoption or family reunification is reached.
• Small groups are essential for children to develop and sustain relationships with their caregivers, peers, and environment. 

The absence of these principles is in large part responsible for the poor outcomes typical for children raised in institutions.
 Even with limited resources and within existing facilities, they can be meaningfully implemented by working closely with 
childcare workers and administrators, connecting institutions basic resources, and ensuring the long-term sustainability of 
these activities. By implementing these principles, Whole Child is working to realize its vision of helping ensure that every 
child has the chance to become a whole person.

Subject: RE: soldiers

We got our first letter back from a soldier today and let me tell you how special it was… it happened to be addressed to our most shy (painfully shy) young lady in our class and she just beamed from ear to ear! The soldier told her how much he appreciated getting the letter and the Christmas Tree… really nice letter… :0)

Just wanted to thank you for doing all you do for the soldiers and the kids!

Bless YOU!
