We donated $220,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The funds will support its pioneering research and lifesaving treatment for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Co-Founder of the RagingBull Charitable Giving program Jason Bond said, “I’m donating $220,000 of my 2019 trading profits to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the incredible work they do in their research, and in bringing hope and healing to children in need. It is an honor to support St Jude and I couldn’t think of a better place to donate my trading profits to than St. Jude to help them continue their mission to help children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
Andy Thompson, Senior Philanthropic Advisor from St. Jude added, “I wanted to say thank you so much to RagingBull Charitable Giving for their generosity for St. Jude. This is going to have a tremendous impact with children and families who come to St. Jude looking for cures for pediatric cancer and it is really going to go a long way so families never have to get a bill for any of the treatment, the travel, housing or food. It’s going to be money well spent—thank you for your generosity!”
St. Jude is where doctors often send their toughest cases because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive cancers. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped increase overall childhood cancer survival rates from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened. St. Children’s Research Hospital accepts children from all 50 states and around the world. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
