Win Your Dream Home and Support Kids

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.

St Jude is such a great organizaation I remember years ago when Danny Thomas himself would promote it and I am so glad to see hiis daughter Marla keep it up. The house is beautful! I will have to check it out.

I watched Marlo Thomas on Dr. Oz yesterday. It was a rerun. And she helps so many people out with the St. Jude Hospital, and I think that this is one of the best charities to give money too! I hope you win this house. Wouldn’t that be awesome!!

St. Jude has a very good reputation in terms of charities. Thanks for sharing this.

How neat, you can donate to a great charity plus get a chance to win a house or other prizes. Thanks for pointing this out, there is a house nearby me so I think I will enter too.

I grew up hearing about St. Jude’s and all the wonderful miracles they work but never knew about this fundraiser. Thanks for sharing. This might be a good birthday or Christmas present for someone.

I have supported St. Jude as a Partner in Hope for many years. They do so much great work for sick kids. Can’t think of a more deserving organization. Hope to visit some day.

I think the dream home idea is a great one. I was somewhat familiar with St. Judd but now I think I will donate more.

How beautiful! And even if you don’t get the house, the proceeds go toward a great charity.
