Jennette McCurdy has revealed that she is celebrating her 22nd birthday, on June 26, 2014, with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Jennette sent out the following note to her fans about how thankful she would be if they would make a donation for her big day:
“Hi everyone! Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The work they do there is so important: treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. And, thanks to the generosity of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – incredible, right?
During my last visit to St. Jude, my buddy Caleb gave me this cool shadowbox that displays photos taken of us during my previous visits. It’s so special to me, and this year, my birthday wish is for you to join me in giving something meaningful back to Caleb and the kids of St. Jude. Please donate here and help me raise $1,000. No amount is too small. For example, $8 will provide a doll that helps patients understand medical treatment and procedures, and $25 covers the costs of a No Mo Chemo Party (a celebration of a patient completing chemotherapy treatment).
So let’s get this party started. Please give whatever you can, and thanks for supporting me and St. Jude kids!”
That’s such a thoughtful thing for Jennette to do for her own birthday. Happy almost birthday Jennette!
