St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Fundraiser
SEPTEMBER IS CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!
We have a personal connection with this wonderful place. Candice Stevens, employee of Sassy & Southern Boutique, is a cancer survivor. As a baby, Candice was diagnosed with Stage 4, Neuroblastoma Cancer, a very aggressive tumor located in the abdomen. Candice was & still is a patient at St. Jude Hospital, and her family experienced first hand this amazing place. She still visits this place every year for research as they use her treatment plan on others fighting the same type of cancer.
St. Jude treats ALL children, regardless of their ability to pay or not. If you have insurance they will file it, but there is no out of pocket expenses that you incur at any time. St. Jude also freely shares all of their research throughout the world, therefore impacting not just patients at their hospital. Not to mention the level of service and care that you receive here, which is top notch, un-heard of.
We want to give back, and we need your help. There are a couple of ways to help out, here they are:
1) We are collecting the following items in our store location to deliver to the children at the hospital:
- Play Dough Brand (Play Dough or accessories)
- Hot Wheels Cars or Accessories
- Puzzles (All kinds)
- Barbie Dolls or Accessories
- Legos (All sizes, styles, kinds)
- Board Games (All kinds)
***All items must be brand new in packaging, due to germ and safety issues, as germs can be deadly to these children.***
These are items that St. Jude has told us that they could always use.
Your donation of any of these specific items will enter you into our drawing to win one of 2 $25 gift cards. Bring any of these items in (September 1st-September 30th, 2018) and we will get you signed up for our drawing.
2) Donate & receive a HERO CARD! We have created a very special "HERO CARD" that you will receive with a $50 or more donation. This "HERO CARD" will give you a 10% discount for ONE WHOLE YEAR. That's right. For one year, you will receive a 10% discount on all purchases made in our store. Even if we have another sale or special discount going on, you will always receive an extra 10% off.
To get your HERO CARD it is so easy! You can do this by coming in-store, making your donation with cash, check (payable to St. Jude Hospital), or with credit card. Or, you can click right on this link, then click "Make a gift" and enter your donation amount and card number. Your HERO CARD will be mailed to your home address. You can donate any amount that you wish, but you will only receive the discount card for donations of $50 or more. ALL donations are welcome and greatly appreciated. (no amount is too small.)
Thank you so much for your willingness to help save a life, just like Candice. We know that without St. Jude Hospital, and God's healing touch, Candice would not be here today. We can never repay St. Jude for the millions of dollars that was spent on Candice alone, but we will definitely do our part, and give it all we can give to help.
