Today is THE DAY!!
It’s the day we get excited about all year long!
It’s one of my very favorite blogging days each year!
Sheaffer and I are celebrating YOU in a FABULOUS way!
If you’re new around here, every year, Sheaffer and I team up to give a great big thanks to YOU our readers for being so sweet, so kind, so loyal and so wonderful to us all year long. It’s an opportunity for us to celebrate this community and how appreciative we are for each of you.
We always aim to make this week big.
And every year, we try to top the last.
This is our NINTH YEAR IN A ROW to celebrate the season with you, and this year, we wanted to not just celebrate our readers but some very deserving families too. So, this year, one lucky recipient will receive our amazing prize package valued at over $2000 (more on that in a minute), but at the same time, we are also going to join together to hopefully raise a ton of money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®!
This year, when Sheaffer and I started chatting about Five Days of Fabulous, we knew we wanted to shake things up. Do more. Really make a difference. Ashby’s fundraiser was so successful that we knew we wanted to do something to help others again. Sheaffer had attended the St. Jude Virtual Influencer Summit over the summer and felt passionate about these children and their families, so it was an easy decision for us to make this a FABULOUS way to celebrate!
If you don’t know about this amazing hospital, let’s get you filled in: The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
The St. Jude purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Not only that, but 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 more than 50 years ago. So not only are children being treated for free, they are actually receiving the absolute best care possible. And St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
So, here’s how it’s going to work this year. Sheaffer and I have compiled one amazing bag of goodies for one generous donor to be gifted. The random name selected will be announced here on our blogs THIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10TH. Sheaffer and I are going to help Santa out and be his elves for one lucky person. This recipient can either keep all of her goodies herself and have an amazing Christmas on us OR we just did all of her holiday shopping for her as she can take these items and gift them to people in her life. Either way, we just want to bless one of you for how much you bless us each and every day.
Okay but how does this fit in with St. Jude?

I’m such a visual person, and this next graphic really helped me grasp how St. Jude is truly changing the lives of children with pediatric cancers…
…look at those amounts! A donation of $250, for example, helps provide a meal card for a St. Jude family for one week. These donations matter! They are helping these patients and their families in every possible way.
Now, check out this graphic here…
…isn’t that amazing?! I am absolutely blown away by these numbers here!
Let’s celebrate the season–and you amazing readers– while also blessing these precious kids and their families too!
Just take a look at Elliott’s story…
…what a blessing St. Jude is to so many!
So, what about this FABULOUS bag?
Well, Sheaffer and I chatted and decided one recipient should get a tote filled with our favorite things!
That being said, we don’t just want Santa to drop off your present in any old bag?
Here is what one lucky person will receive…
How about a Chloe tote bag along with all of these other FABULOUS goodies?!?
One person will receive: a Chloe Large Woody Canvas Tote, Sorel boots , my favorite tarte palette, Colleen Rothschild $250 Gift Card, weighted bangles, cheetah wrap bracelet and the entire STMT bracelet collection, an Allie+Bess “Tinsel” Stack ,bow earrings, our favorite throw and Barefoot Dreams blardigan.
Holy cow! It’s over $2000 in FABULOUS goodies!
Whoa! What a huge day!!! Thank you in advance, friends! I just know you’re going to make this week special for us and bless so many families.
Don’t forget, donate through THIS LINK HERE to be a part of our FABULOUS FUNDRAISER!
