The Gift That Gives A Lot – From The St. Jude Gift Shop

From Tracy Wirtz:

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is very near and dear to my heart. We all have some organization or charity (hopefully) that we support or that holds special meaning for us. Right now, there are a number of children in Acadiana who are patients there. One is my little friend Ella.

She and her mom Brittany are in Memphis. Ella underwent a bone marrow transplant about two weeks ago. It’s a grueling process that involves intense chemo for a couple weeks and then the transplant. Right now, her little body is getting used to having the new, healthy marrow and she’s not feeling her best. Her mom knows this is part of the healing process but it is hard to see your child sick.

The one thing she says without fail is that she is thankful that St. Jude is there for Ella because she knows it is the best place for her. When I visit Memphis, I always go into the gift shop at St. Jude. It has AWESOME things! A few Christmases ago, I decided to buy all of my gifts from there and it was a big hit!

Before I gave out gifts to adults and children alike, I told them where their gifts came from. It was special because they got a gift and St. Jude benefited too! All of the proceeds go to St. Jude!!! How cool is that!

Another neat thing is that you don’t have to go to Memphis to shop and help St. Jude. They have a great online store. Shop away!!!
