St. Baldrick’s Foundation Joins the Worldwide Movement Called #GivingTuesday to #GiveKidsALifetime

LOS ANGELES (Nov. 30, 2021) – You have an opportunity to help kids with cancer today. It’s #GivingTuesday – a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity – and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest non-government funder of childhood cancer research grants has a goal to raise $100,000 to conquer kids’ cancer!

Yes, there are so many worthy causes, but what could be more important than saving a life?

St. Baldrick’s Honored Kid, Julia, started fighting a brain tumor when she was only 8. After surgeries, chemo, radiation and more, today her tumor remains stable. She’s a beautiful 15-year-old who leaves everyone she meets feeling encouraged and uplifted.

“We should help people and give back to others all the blessings God has given us,” says Julia. “It makes me feel so warm inside and my heart swells ten times when I volunteer!”

What Can You Do to Help Give Kids A Lifetime?

  • Make a donation.
  • Spread the word on social media – Use a #GivingTuesday graphic on all your social profiles and include #GiveKidsALifetime to show what motivates you.
  • Start your own Facebook Fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s.
  • Join us LIVE on #GivingTuesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. PST for our very first Twitch livestream.

However you choose to get involved this #GivingTuesday and throughout the coming year, St. Baldrick’s would like to thank you. With contributions down sharply due to the pandemic, your support is incredibly important.

Since no one institution has a monopoly on the best ideas, St. Baldrick’s respected scientific review process directs donations to the research most likely to find new and better cures for kids – no matter where that research is taking place.

For Julia and so many others who need research to continue, please make the most of this Giving Tuesday to #GiveKidsALifetime.
