St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a leader in the treatment of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This is a charity that I have always been happy to donate to because I just cannot imagine how devastating it must be to have your child diagnosed with something like this. On top of this no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. We all know that medical care can be expensive just for minor illnesses even so to not have to worry about money when you are dealing with a catastrophic disease must be such a relief to families.


In 1991 the first St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway was created as a fundraiser. Nationwide, since that time, the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaways have raised more than $290 million! Think of all of the families that is helping!

I buy a ticket each year! Yes, I hope to win the house or even another prize, but if I don’t win anything that’s okay too because I know that I am helping a really wonderful charity. There are over 30 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaways around the country this year. Check out the locator and see if there is one near you and buy your ticket today!

This morning I bought my ticket for a chance to win this gorgeous home in St. Louis where I live. Along with the gorgeous homes that are given away there are several other prizes as well so be sure to check out all the prizes for the location near you. The dates of the drawings vary around the country. You can buy tickets online, by phone, by mail, and in-person.
