Chip Gaines Launches "Chip-in Challenge" for St. Jude
Chip is once again organizing a fundraiser for St.Jude Children's Research Hostpital.
Ready, set, fundraise.
The Chip-in challenge has begun, and Chip Gaines couldn't be more excited to raise money for St. Jude Children's Resarch Hospital. Yesterday, Gaines took to social media to announce his latest fundraising efforts for St. Jude.
"So here's the deal, in 2017 we raised $230,000 for @StJude, and in return, I agreed to shave my head. We all came together for something big and what we were able to accomplish together was really special. We are heading back to St. Jude this year and I'd like to bring them an even bigger check!" the post begins. "I'm calling in some favors and pulling together a group of people for what we are calling the #ChipinChallenge—Here's how it works: Go to chipinchallenge.com, select who you're 'rooting for' and donate under their name. Every penny we raise will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and it's a fact that when we all chip in towards one goal, nothing can stop us. We've got till June 11, so spread the word!"
On Chip's fundraising website, individuals can donate on de facto "teams" in unity with celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Drew Barrymore, Kacey Musgraves, Florida Georgia Line, and more. As of the morning of June 5th, the money for the total campaign amounts to $172,331. For more information or to make a donation, visit chipinchallenge.com.
