Learning Express Toys Support St. Jude Children’s Hospital

This spring, Learning Express Toys of Wellington will help give hope to kids battling cancer and other deadly diseases by supporting the St. Jude “Give thanks. Give hope.” campaign benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Until April 30, shoppers can spring into action to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. In exchange for a $1 donation at checkout, patrons receive a spring-themed paper pin-up featuring a St. Jude patient, like 2-year-old Reese or 5-year-old Ethan.

Thanks to generous donations, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel or food, and they can focus on what matters most — helping their child live. Visit Learning Express Toys at the Mall at Wellington Green, 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd., to support this campaign.

One hundred percent of the donations raised during this program go to help St. Jude continue its fight to find cures for cancer and other deadly childhood diseases. Unlike other hospitals, the majority of funds come from individual contributions and programs like “Give thanks. Give hope.” The program has raised more than $2.6 million for the kids of St. Jude.

St. Jude is where doctors send their toughest cases, because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive forms of childhood cancers. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. And every discovery is freely shared so that every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.
