Adorable 4-Year-Old Gives Her Own Money to Help St. Jude Kids [Watch]
A precious 4-year-old named Presley captured everyone's hearts when she stepped up with a donation to the kids at St. Jude.
Country station 92.5 WBKR in Owensboro, Ky., is just one of the Townsquare Media stations joining with Taste of Country on Feb. 1 and 2 to raise money to continue the important work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The radiothon has been filled with poignant moments, but one of the brightest was when Presley turned up at the studio to offer her own contribution — some bills and change tucked into a plastic Ziploc bag.
Saying the donation is "for all the kids," Presley explains that she "had to leave daycare" to get the money. It's unclear what she did to earn the money she donated, but it has something to do with Becky, she goes on to say, melting the hearts of the radio staff.
St. Jude Kids Share the ABCs of Cancer
St. Jude is a world leader in both treating childhood cancer and diseases and developing cutting-edge research, and the hospital relies on donations and fundraising efforts not only to pursue that work, but also to fulfill its mandate that no family ever has to pay for treatment.
Country Cares for St. Jude has been helping in that effort for years, and Townsquare joins in annually, raising $1.7 million in 2017. Cole Swindell, Jerrod Niemann, newcomers Kassi Ashton and Devin Dawson and more are among the country artists helping to raise funds in 2018, and many of the biggest stars in the genre stepped up to raise awareness by wearing T-shirts reading, "This Shirt Saves Lives."
