I am going to do all my Christmas Cards online so I have the extra money to donate. :)
I figure 2 gifts are always better than 1! :)

There's a tote board on St.Judes website--http://www.countrycares.org/content/dsp_clubs.cfm Gives the totals for all the artists involved and even lets you donate online :)

I expect that one reason there isn't more money donated in Garths name is that many of his fans here are donating to his charity Teammates for Kids, I figure since I'm giving to St. Judes in Trisha's Honor, and to TFK to Honor Garth, I don't need to do it in his name at St. Judes...its nice for his fans to have the choice now, and again, thanks Moni for collecting all our cards and money for Garth!! I cant wait to see how it goes!
Oh and Amber, it might be nice if you go to Trisha site and do this- Pump up and inspire the Trisha fans to give...

I'm wondering if the totals on the St. Jude site are a cumulative amount for the year. I know they do a challenge thing around Fan Fair time where the different clubs collect donations.

The challenge runs from May to May each year. Usually the end of May with the winners being announced at the IFCO Fun Fest each year. Although, I believe with the renaming to Country Fans Care for St.Judes kids there's no winners or losers, just a tote board.

there aren't any winners or losers. Just a cool way to help kids and for Garth to get an extra special gift this year. I emailed about 20 people on my buddy list so I am hoping they will all donate 5 bucks...... :)

Garth is at 180.00! Yay Pgers! Remember that if you want you name on the list that will be given to Garth in a stocking saying we donated in his honor you have to donate by 12/15!

That's really cool that his name can help St. Jude's raise money for research that way. I know they do a lot of research particularly on children's diseases so every dollar they get is saving children's lives. I think the main thing they research is cancer treatments but I believe they look for cures and treatment for heart disorders too, I saw something on their site about it. My sister used to participate in a program at school where kids would get pledges that would go to St. Judes and it was based on how many pages of a math booklet they completed correctly. It was a neat way to combine charity and education. :)

My friend at St Jude told me that you can still donate until midnight tonite in Garth's name. Let's see if we can give it a good push....even if we got another 10 people to donate 10.00....that's 100 for St. Jude. Plus I can just hear garth when he gets the stocking "Cool!' LOL

Thanks for the reminder Amber. I made my donation, although there was no place to indicate that it was to be in Garth's name, except that I clicked his name to get to the donation form.
