Day Trade for Good was thanked by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on April 23, 2021, for their generous donation of $11,000. Donations like theirs helps children like 4-year-old Brinley with leukemia who will “never receive a bill from St. Jude” because of the caring hearts and hands that have reached out in love since St. Jude’s beginnings.
Brinley, who dreams of a career as a pediatrician and loves art, has had her cancer return twice. The second time, her family was referred to St. Jude. Brinley received a treatment plan, and housing and food arrangements – nothing at her family’s expense – because of the outreach of others.
St. Jude’s has been treating and defeating childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases since 1962 “regardless of race, religion or financial status,” states the St. Jude website.
“We believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live.”
“Brinley’s family is so thankful for generosity like yours that helps make St. Jude a place where hope lives… We couldn’t do it without friends like you. God bless your good heart.” – Marlo Thomas
