Why we are fundraising for St. Jude
Skeletons for St. Jude (SSJ) is a nationwide fundraising effort of Halloween/holiday home haunters that use their Halloween and/or holiday displays to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to support children and their families impacted by childhood cancer.
Our goal is to help St. Jude by raising as much money as we can to help get sick children get well and out of the hospital so they too can enjoy these fun Halloween and holiday displays.
This effort started in Holly Springs, NC in 2020, with the Robertson Family placing a St. Jude fundraising sign in their yard with their Halloween decorations after being aired on a local news outlet. In the first year, their family, friends, and community generated over $8,000.
In 2021, the effort to grew nationwide to include over 400 homes and were located in almost every US state but five, to generate over $151,000. Donations came from over 2,000 donors from both this fundraising site and a Facebook fundraiser. The Home Depot donated $45,000, which was part of the $151K.
Please help those impacted by childhood cancer by sharing this link on your social media pages. 100% of the donations go directly to St. Jude and all donors receive a tax deductible receipt.
Thanks to donors like you, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
Join me! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
