My eyes light up. My heart begins to beat a bit faster. My mouth starts running….spitting out stats and stories of miracles and the GOOD I have seen.
It happens EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. someone mentions St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Sure, I would love to convince you to donate. Because? KIDS. And my heart longs to do more good in the world – and to help you find easy ways to do it as well.
I have visited the hospital. More than once. I have met some of the families. I have seen the committment that every person there has to curing childhood cancer. Yes, CURING CHILDHOOD CANCER.
And you can help – all while doing something you very well may be planning to do already this summer – TRAVEL.
Calling all American Airlines flyers with a mileage account – this gift of opportunity is for you! It’s called Fly for St. Jude and allows American Airlines AAdvantage members to earn miles while doing something amazing – helping kids with cancer. And families who will be guest of St. Jude’s in the future.
How does it work?
A $10 donation? 100 American Airlines AAdvantage miles. A $100 donation? 1000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles. A $500 donation? 5000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles. You get the idea. I trust you don’t need me to do the math, BUT, maybe you need the reminder that you are only 1000-2000 miles away from your next reward trip, from that chance to take your family to the beach for summer.
I’m picturing you traveling for the summer AND I’m incredibly grateful that you can do something good while you are doing something that gives you peace and joy.
And hey – if you AREN’T an AAdvantage member – they (we – I consider myself to be part of the St. Jude’s family of love and support) want you to know that every dollar you donate matters.
Every dollar counts.
Every dollar brings St. Jude closer to saving lives, keeping families intact, allowing children to grow up, graduate from high school and college, get married and LIVE the lives they were destined to lead.
Also – curing childhood cancer.
Thank you, as always, for your love and support of such a beautiful cause. I know it is impossible to help everyone, every cause. And we all have some that matter to us for different reasons. But, I always find myself drawn back to the kids.
