Giveaway for a Great Cause...St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

I am delighted to share a wonderful giveaway today for one of the causes closest to my heart, St. Jude Childen's Research Hospital.  I love shopping via computer and I especially like being able to contribute to a cause that does so much good. I can do both at The St. Jude Gift Shop, where the proceeds benefit the children who are patients and the research that helps to save lives. I am so delighted that with my friends at St. Jude we are doing a giveaway of one of the many great gifts in the Gift Shop, the Alphabet Jewelry Bead Box. Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, Cousins, friends, this is a great gift for the little ones in your life.
 There are so many cute and useful gift items. There are adorable ornaments, cute kiddie clothes, and sweaters that would be perfect for keeping warm on a cold January day. Entering the giveaway is easy-peasey. Please visit the St. Jude Gift Shop and let me know which gift catches your fancy, other than the Alphabet Jewelry Bead Shop. Also, please be a follower of Buttercupland via Bloglovin, Google Reader or Google+, and there will be an extra entry for tweets.

Founded in 1962 by the late Danny Thomas to help children with cancer, St. Jude has become one of the great centers in the world for treatment and research. Your purchases help to fund this extraordinary center where no family pays for anything. I've had a long-standing admiration for St. Jude Children's Hospital, but after my experience as a spinal cord tumor survivor the admiration has grown much stronger. In adults spinal cord tumors are generally benign, but that's not the case in children. Spinal cord and brain tumors are often malignant in children and closely related. Research at St. Jude is among the most advanced in the world. While I was at the Spinal Cord Tumor Conference this summer I learned a lot more about this research and I am so grateful to be able to helpful to this lifesaving effort.

The giveaway closes next Monday, November 11 and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, November 12. Please stop by and help support the work of St. Jude. 

Please note that the date for entering this giveaway has been extended to Monday, November 18.

I am about to run some errands and enjoy this sunny, brisk and genuinely fall-like weather. I hope you have a great Monday. Thanks, as always, for visiting and take good care of yourself.

What a wonderful giveaway and worthy cause! I loved SO many of the items on their gift shop website! There were two art totes for kids, a monkey and a ladybug:) TOO CUTE! Have a blessed day and thanks for the opportunity!

What a wonderful website! I loved that owl chalkboard, and the patient-designed tree ornaments were precious! My husband would love the golf set. I must say, though, this alphabet bead set that you have illustrated is my favorite since there is a granddaughter who has distinct pleasure from working with such things.

I will try to refer people to your blog through my Twitter connection. I hope I will get it done right.:-)

Thank you for making us aware of this. I didn't even know they had an online gift shop. I, too, have a lot of admiration and respect for the work of St. Jude's.

Those at St. Jude are amazing! - For years now, I've admired their work, but never considered an on-line gift shop.
So many cute things ... and best of all, reasonably priced! My pick would have to be that ornament with the angels holding hands.

Enjoy the BRISK!

I remember when D.T. would have his TV specials around St Jude theme-a remarkable man with a remarkable cause and what a great idea doing the give away, some little person will love that box of beads.
