Chip And Joanna Gaines Donate $1.5 Million To St. Jude Children's Hospital

We really love when our favorite stars put their money where their mouth is and actually do some good. See, we hear from a lot of celebrities about causes they support good deeds they allegedly do. But we don't often get to see them in action! We know that when it comes to charity and philanthropy, stars are just like us - there are causes they hold near and dear to their hearts, and organizations that they'll go above and beyond to support. And honestly, we just want to see more of it! Not in a bragging way, but in a way that shows they're sincere and trying to put a little bit of good back into the world.

HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are immensely popular, and judging by all the shiplap in houses now, their fans will follow their lead no matter where it goes. So we were so excited to see them doing something truly amazing. The Fixer-Upper couple had a huge surprise for the patients and families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and their supportive gesture is going to mean so much for many.

Chip and Joanna Gaines presented St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with a check for ONE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS, which they raised through a special social media campaign. Do you have any idea how much good $1.5 million will do for the patients and their families at St. Jude?! In case you're not familiar, St. Jude provide treatment and support for children battling pediatric cancer and other diseases, and they provide this without passing any of the costs onto families. Sick kids and their scared parents can turn to St. Jude for top-notch medical care, without worrying about being buried in debt for trying to make their kids better. They are a wonderful organization, and they are so deserving of this money.

But that's not all the Gaines' did for St. Jude and their patients and families. They also unveiled an amazing playhouse structure that was built with the needs of these kids in mind. The playhouse is located at Target House in Memphis, Tennessee, where patients and their families stay for free while they get treatment at St. Jude. What an amazing gesture from a truly wonderful couple!
