The mission of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital is " to find cures for children with catastrophic diseases through research and treatment." It was recently named the #1 children's cancer hospital in the U.S., and its research helps provide comfort, care and treatment to children nationwide. Much of its funding comes from the support of corporate partners, but increasingly non-profits are seeing their corporate funding shrink and must rely more heavily on grass-roots programs.
Or in the case of St. Jude, asphalt-roots programs. They've turned to toddler-powered Trike-a-Thons to bring in contributions, and work with pre-schools across the country. One participating pre-school is attended by Kyra May (pictured right, off the front as usual), the daughter of GamJams' publisher Mike May.
GamJams has stepped up as a sponsor of the Trike-a-Thon. In addition to a cash contribution of its own, GamJams is providing free merchandise to GamJams readers who contribute as well:
