St. Jude supporter Darius Rucker, in celebration of the Christmas season, performs a special holiday video, “Beautiful Baby,” from Sandra Boynton’s "Frog Trouble" book and album.

R&B and Hip Hop artist Mack Wilds is supporting St. Jude through a “Text To Donate” campaign. Ticket holders for his first solo concert at SOB’s in New York City on Dec. 23 can join the mission and get in the spirit of giving by texting “GIVE” to “50333” to donate $10 to St. Jude (message and data rates may apply).

Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.

The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children.

St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed no child should die in the dawn of life. To learn more about St. Jude, visit stjude.org.
