This year is the 50th anniversary of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. In 1962, Danny Thomas opened the doors to the hospital that is now considered one of the most cutting-edge facilities for childhood disease in the world. What sets St. Jude apart is its no refusal policy towards children that need its care. No family is ever turned away based on race, religion or ability to pay for treatment.

If you are able this holiday season, consider making a donation in honor of the healthy kids in your life. You can do this right on this St. Jude page.

Blogger Maura, also the owner of the Pretty Colleen Etsy shop, has designed a specialty bracelet for the golden anniversary of St. Jude and is donating a portion of the proceeds directly to the hospital. If you are looking for a way to buy a meaningful and beautiful gift this Christmas, this is a way to do it. We are also giving away one in a giveaway that ends at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 13th. You can enter that giveaway below. Buying a bracelet earns you 10 (!!!) entries.

Here is a little more about the bracelet that you can purchase here. If you’d like more information on how you can contribute to St. Jude, go to www.stjude.org. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below! If you purchase one, copy and paste your transaction ID in the widget for us to confirm your entry.

This Swarovski crystal bracelet is both delicate and elegant. A 23mm Swarovski crystal center stone sparkles alongside the gold-plated double chain. The bracelet measures approximately 7 inches in total length and is finished with a lobster clasp. **Please specify if you would like additional loops for a longer length**


This beautiful bracelet is a wonderful holiday gift, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is “to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.” Please go to www.stjude.org to learn more about this incredible charity and other ways you can help.
