Helping St. Jude's

Who knew that you could help sick kids by doing math?  

My kids chose to participate in the St. Jude's Mathathon, a fundraiser for the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.  It's a pretty simple thing - the kids receive math books from St. Jude's, they do all the math and ask others for sponsorship.  The money goes to help fund new research for cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

My Big Helper is super excited about being able to help other kids.  One child with cancer is focused in her book, and she's been quite sad to learn about her journey.  She wants to help, and she's working on her math book in all of her spare time.  

I've never known a kid who had cancer - knock on wood - but friends have, and unfortunately, he recently lost his battle.  It would be great if no one else did.

If you'd like to help St. Jude's in their research or participate in the mathathon yourself, please click on the widget below.

Thank you.
