    Hey 19! I was way too self-centered at 19 to even consider this Congrats Aysha and thanks for leading with your heart! So proud of you…     Aysha invited you to her fundraiser  
     Aysha’s birthday fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Fundraiser by Aysha Billimoria for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital       About the Fundraiser For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I’ve included information about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital below. 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. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. #StJude 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.   How much would you like to donate?     $5       $20       $50       $100       Other         About the Nonprofit   St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital EIN 62-0646012 Visit Guidestar Page   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.
