Put more giving in your Thanksgiving…
Perhaps no holiday brings family together like Thanksgiving. But for families rocked by childhood cancer and other catastrophic illnesses, the only thing that will bring their families – and their lives – back together again is a cure.
For more than 50 years, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been committed to finding cures for these diseases, free of charge. Each year, they treat 7,800 patients, bringing hope to the lives of children and their loved ones.
This Thanksgiving, Soliant is asking our Facebook fans to join together and help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. To help, all you have to do is “Like” our Thanksgiving Facebook status and, in return, we’ll donate $1 to this worthy cause.
