Giving A Bit Back

My infertility clinic owed me a refund after the accountant and I figured out the bills.  It wasn't a lot after they figured in where they had forgotten to charge me.  I had pointed that unpaid bill out to them.  I didn't want a hidden charge showing up like with my other infertility clinic when I miscarried.  Hopefully this time the babies will stick and stick well, for say nine months.

When all was said and done I had a credit of a little over $130 left over from the bills.  I told my husband what I'd like to do with the found money and he agreed.

My husband's friend and former battle buddy is doing a fund raising page for St. Jude's Childrens research.  We decided that this was where we wanted our found money to go.  You can click on that link if you want to donate too. 

My grandfather used to make that one of his favorite charities my mother told me.  Just another reason why I felt like this was the place where our money should go.  I hope that if I'm lucky enough to have children I won't need St. Jude's hospital but if I do it is nice to know that such a place exists.

  11. I think it's wonderful that you're donating to St. Jude. I live in the same city and have a friend who has two of her kids in there and those kids are still alive because of the amazing work they do there. St. Jude needs every penny.
