2024 Skeletons for St. Jude (SSJ) Fundraiser

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 as a local fundraiser in 2020 in Holly Springs, NC. The Robertson family placed a sign in front of their Halloween display asking for donations to help raise money for St. Jude. In 2021 and 2022, the effort expanded nationwide, involving over 625 partner homes, across almost every state in the US and some international supporters. 

Across three Halloween campaigns, with the help of thousands of gracious donors we have collectively raised $373,856 to support St. Jude. 

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.
