Expedia Brings The World to St. Jude Patients [Video]
The WBKR Window World St. Jude Radiothon continues and we are spending the next two days sharing amazing stories of inspiration and hope from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. I am always amazed, blown away, by the lengths St. Jude goes to in order to normalize the lives of children whose lives aren't normal at all. And, in January, at our annual Country Cares conference, we were shown this video. This amazing video that explains St. Jude's partnership with Expedia. It's a partnership that brings world travel to children who are sometimes too sick to even go outside. This video simply brought me to tears. It's beautiful.
Here at WBKR, we are encouraging you to help St. Jude continue to give these children, who are battling catastrophic diseases that threaten to rob them of their childhoods, HOPE! And you can do that by becoming a St. Jude Partner-in-Hope. Call 1-800-201-8883. To become a Partner, you just need to pledge $20 per month for 12 months on a debit or credit card. 1-800-201-8883.
As St. Jude founder Danny Thomas said, "No child should die in the dawn of life." And we are asking you to join this fight . . . to make sure they don't. Every child should have the world at his or her fingertips. And, we have to give them the readiness, the strength and the health to go out an explore it.
