Brett Eldredge Partners with Lyft to Help St. Jude Kids
Brett Eldredge gave some young patients at St. Jude Children's Hospital a night they'll never forget when he invited them to attend his concert in Nashville. That's not all Eldredge is doing to help kids, though.
Eldredge is a longtime supporter of St. Jude, which aims to cure those fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The singer and hospital have partnered with Lyft, and for the first time, passengers who use the ride-sharing platform nationwide can donate to St. Jude by rounding up their fair to the nearest dollar, which goes to the hospital.
“I am so thankful to St. Jude for the opportunity to meet these incredible kids," Eldredge says. "The courage and zest for life that they have is something that will inspire me forever. Now everyone can help make an impact with Lyft’s Round Up & Donate. I hope that everyone can see how powerful and simple it is to help by donating. Let’s give these children the life that they deserve."
The Round Up & Donate feature gives people an easy way to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude, Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, further explains. "Just a few cents can ultimately round up to a tremendous contribution, enabling us to continue with groundbreaking research and treatment all while keeping our founding promise that 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,” Shadyac adds.
