American Internet Tech donates to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (September 2022)


September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

This month, we honor those with pediatric cancer. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962. St. Jude creates more clinical trials for childhood cancer than any other children's hospital in the U.S.

On September 1st, the first day of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM), St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® announced its newest ambassadors, Chip and Joanna Gaines, who have expanded their relationship with St. Jude, including participating in the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign.

As ambassadors, the Gaineses will support upcoming St. Jude campaigns, which include joining with other celebrities and influencers for #30DaysForStJude, a social media campaign throughout September encouraging people to learn about St. Jude and support its mission. They will also participate for the first time in the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign, where celebrities, supporters, media and brands unite to support St. Jude patients and families during the holiday shopping season. The Gaineses will feature in one of the campaign’s heartwarming spots seen in theatres and on screens across the country.

This is not the first time the Gaines family has supported St. Jude. Over the years they have teamed up with fellow celebrities on social media for the Chip In Challenge, created an outdoor patient playhouse and renovated the dining room at Target House, the long-term home away from home for St. Jude patients and families. They also contributed a portion of proceeds from Joanna’s children’s book, “The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be” and made a special connections with patients such as St. Jude patient Bailey.

American Internet Tech proceeds to one more monthly donation because thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.
