30 Days of Pictures: Day Four, Making Miracles

Day four: A picture of something you'd like to do again
(Ok so I may not actually be completing this project in 30 consecutive days, but hey it's the effort that counts!)

If you know me, you know I'm bad at picking out one single thing when I'm asked to. Something that I'd love to do again is have the chance to visit St. Jude and to begin volunteering for the organization again. In college I was involved with Up 'til Dawn which was a student organization that raised money and awareness for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I worked with an amazing group of student leaders and together we raised tens of thousands of dollars to help the patients at St. Jude. And below is the total that was raised in just our second year on campus! We had a blast working together as you can see from us playing chubby bunny at our finale event my junior year.

Every year, St. Jude pays for two members of every Up 'til Dawn group to attend a Collegiate Seminar in Memphis, TN where you learn more about how to better your organization, more about the cause in general, and we were actually able to see the hospital and the patients. It's a cause that I'll continuously spread awareness of, if you haven't heard of it I suggest you check it out!
