St. Jude Fundraising Update
The season of giving is in full force. We love watching people get together for the moments that matter.
But for some families, the holidays were spent in the hospital this year. Children and families affected by life-threatening illnesses know more than anyone that time spent with loved ones is the greatest gift of all. For these families, making memories is all that matters.
This is why our current project with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has a special place in our hearts. We are working with amazing people and sponsors to make this St. Jude Dream Home Showplace a reality, and in turn, raising money to help end childhood cancer. Because no child should spend this time of year in a hospital bed.
Our goal, along with the builders Magruder Homes and Pitman Custom Homes, is to raise $100,000. Because of the numerous sponsors supplying services and materials, this is all we need to build the Hope House at no cost to St. Jude.
And if the home is built at no cost, then ALL OF THE PROCEEDS from the sale of the home go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
Why Donate to a Dream Home Showplace?
Donating to this Dream Home Showplace has a multiplier effect – up to FIVE TIMES as much as your original donation!
Remember, we only need to raise $100,000 to build the home at no cost. The market in Texas will allow the Hope House to sell for half a million dollars. This means your donated dollars go so much further!
$100,000 in Donations = $500,000 for St. Jude!
How to Donate
Right, now we have raised $21,105. Will you help us reach our goal of $100,000?
To donate directly to the build of the Hope House, and therefore make your money go further, go to our virtual stud signing. By donating a minimum of $20 before January 1, 2019, your name will be signed on a stud of the home! Of course, you can still donate after January 1st as the Hope House continues to be built.
You’ve been following along, voting, and asking how you can help. This is your chance to be a part of the Hope House!
How Your Donation Helps
Donations to the Dream Home Showplace in Bryan-College Station, Texas go to helping build the Hope House at no cost. In turn, all of the proceeds from the sale of the home go to the children and families of St. Jude.
Because of donations over the last 50 years, St. Jude has conducted research and invented treatments to push the overall childhood cancer survival rate to 80% – up from 20% since it opened. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes through research, allowing doctors and scientists around the world to save even more children. In addition, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
You always have the opportunity to make a donation to St. Jude, but by donating to the Dream Home Showplace, your money will go even further. Thank you for supporting us along this journey.
