Chili's Big Night for St. Judes

Shortly after diving into the blogging world I came across the site for a little boy named Ethan Powell. He was an amazingly handsome little boy with two amazing parents. However, Ethan was very sick. He had cancer. Ethan received his treatment at St Jude's Research Hospital.

On Ethan's web site his mommy and daddy had set up a chat room. This was a busy room filled with many sorrows and joy but one thing was for sure in this room, there was always prayer. I met so many wonderful people there! I cried many tears at all hours of the night with these women and also shared much joy. Silly as it may seem this cyber room and the many who frequented it got me through many of nights.

Sadly in April 2008 Little Ethan lost his battle and went to play in heaven. I would love to say that is the end of the story but is not. There are so very many children suffering from some form of cancer. Many of these children loose their battles to this monster every day. You can help though.

Tonight is The Big Day at Chili's. All profits will be donated to St Jude's. All you have to do is eat there! Easy Right? As Nike would say "Just Do It!"

Here is the official link to the event.

"As one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® is renowned for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children's lives. Chili's is proud to support this important cause through our Create-A-Pepper campaign. Each year we invite guests to create custom pepper designs and help St. Jude through individual donations. The annual campaign also includes a national one-day event where 100% of Chili's profits for the day are donated to St. Jude.

To date Chili's has raised more than $30 million for the children of St. Jude. It's because of the generosity of people like you that we are well on our way to our goal of raising the largest partner donation in the history of St. Jude — $50 million over a 10-year period. The money you've raised has helped change how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Thank you for giving the gift of hope by supporting St. Jude."

BeLIeVe... Prayer Works!
