Hey Cuties, I hope you remembered to spring forward Saturday night. Are you like many others struggling to adjust? I had an amazing time hanging out with the folks from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on Thursday. St. Jude and Radio One music stations took over the airways for the annual St. Jude Radiothon. If you heard it on your radio then you know what I'm talking about. If you didn't, don't worry I'm going to fill you in. If you want to donate you can still call 1-800-411-9898.
Hey Cuties, On Friday I chatted with Erica Campbell, one-half of gospel singing group Mary Mary on behalf of St. Jude. It was like chatting with one of my girlfriends; we clicked and chatted like we'd known one another for years. I love a kindred spirit. We talked about why she is supporting St. Jude, her new music and new Mary Mary music and more.
Hey Cuties, Your trustee St. Jude Cutie, is back giving you some knowledge. We are 17 days from Thanksgiving, I'm just saying. St. Jude is amazing and I've told you that a million times, but this one served my personal interest. Over the years I've heard about sickle cell disease, but I always heard people say it is a black person's disease. The lie detector has determined that is a lie. You can be any race or ethnicity and get sickle cell the disease and or the trait. Did you read that for understanding?
Hey Cuties, I'm back home from Key West & Miami; I still have unpacking to do and pictures to sort and so we will dish on that later in the week. Instead, I have a story to share with you; one day I'm on social media like always and I come across a dope story about a little boy. When you see stories, they are just that stories. You don't know the person, and you don't have a connection to the story; you just read maybe share and you keep it pushing. Well, this time, was different. I knew this kid, I knew his parents and have known them for some time.
Hey Cuties, I attended a super dope event last week that I've been waiting to share with you. Bubbling over with excitement a bit, if you follow my Instagram then you know what I'm talking about. Your St. Jude Cutie is back again and this time, we are talking about sickle cell. September is National Sickle Cell Awareness Month. Do you know anything about sickle cell? Do you know someone who is battling the disease?
Hey Cuties, It is another week upon us and fall officially begins on Thursday. *tosses fall foliage* fall is my favorite season, I love fall fashion, and I turn a year older. It also kicks of the holiday season in my world; yay for nice things. We are still in September and that means it is still Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & Sickle Cell Awareness Month. As your St. Jude Cutie, I'm continuing to spread the word. Today I'm sharing the details of the St. Jude Target House. Do you know that is even a thing? Don't worry; I didn't either until I went for a visit.
Hey Cuties, I'm so excited to share this post with you; two weeks ago I spent an incredible three days with St. Jude. I told you about Day 1: Our tour of the National Civil Rights Museum. Then I shared my beloved Memphis #FatSnacks. Today I'm sharing Day 2: Our day at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Just in time for September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Hey Cuties, Prior to leaving for the St. Jude Blog Tour in Memphis I had one mission and several anxieties. My mission was to visit the now iconic Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot. I'd been to Memphis many years ago but didn't have a chance to go. This time I was going to make it my mission although our days were full sunrise to sunset. After receiving the agenda I was thrilled to see they were taking us there for a tour. SCORE!!! Now one might wonder why in the world St. Jude would take us to the National Civil Rights Museum. Stick with me and I will spill the tea. Look for the , this is Day one of the #StJudeBlogTour
