August's Charity of the Month: St Jude Childen's Hospital #slyestrong

Charity of the Month is the newest way Team Tizzel is helping to support some very worthy organizations. As part of this program, we will dedicate a post to a charity that we will sponsor through the month by donating Holly's training run money.

July: In July we sponsored Give Kids the World as part of our Mickey Milers Running Team annual fundraising drive. Our donation of $125 will be matched by a corporate matching gift (you can donate too through this link).

St. Jude has always been on our radar for a charity of the month sponsorship. They do incredible work and have touched the lives of many. We moved them up to August because of a Facebook post from our friend Michael (Team Tizzel Guest blogger of our #goofyinaday series).

We had learned several months ago that his cousin's son AJ had lost his life while battling leukemia at age 20. Through articles and Facebook posts we learned about AJ's courage, spirit, and kindness. AJ became close with the staff at St. Jude that did so much for him during his 14 months of treatment. You can read more about AJ in this local newspaper article.

Michael's daughter Callie (age 10) is honoring AJ's spirit of by kicking off her own fundraiser for St. Jude. Michael and Callie's brother Cole (14) are pitching in as well to help meet her goal of raising $1,000.

There are many ways you can help:
Callie is selling awesome loom bracelets. Donations are $5 for each bracelet and payment can be made via the link below. Be sure to leave your email so she can ask about your color choices. We bought a few extra to give out to friends.

Cole is likely on lawn mower patrol. He has no online presence so you'll just have to track him down somewhere in the D.C. suburbs.

Michael's selling race-inspired magnets on Etsy that benefit specific charities. St. Jude will receive all proceeds from sales of the Avengers and Star Wars magnets. You can link to each one here, or check our sidebar for links.
















Another way: Just donate! Click the button below to contribute to their campaign (same link as the one for the bracelets).
