One More Thing For Your Holiday Shopping List

From World-Class Patient Care to LIfesaving Treatments

A huge, sincere “THANK YOU!” to those who participated/contributed/donated this weekend at The Self-Defense Institute in Tewksbury, MA, and helped to make a difference to those children not as healthy as their own. 

Shihan Deb and Shihan Jeff explained, “With hundreds of participants and thousands of dollars raised, we were proud to donate our time/energy/resources; and we are so thankful to those who attended all the classes during our two-day fundraising event!!  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital IS FINDING CURES and SAVING CHILDREN every day!  St. Jude’s also ensures that no family EVER pays for anything!! 

As Partners in Hope, we are with a group of donors who help St. Jude to continue to provide the most advance research and world-class patient care to save children in communities around the world!”

To complete your holiday shopping list, please remember to give to the kids of St. Jude Children Research Hospital.  While you are thankful for your healthy children, remember to give to those who are not.  For your convenience, all checks are payable to St. Jude Children Research Hospital and can be dropped off at The Self-Defense Institute in Tewksbury, MA, this holiday season. 

….Or even easier….You can make your donations online at www.stjude.org

Thank you again to everyone who made this weekend a success for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!!   Happy Holidays to Everyone from The Self-Defense Institute in Tewksbury, MA!!

We all know that traditions are the foundations of the holidays. They cultivate bonds between families and friends. They make great memories. We believe that we have created another tradition. Remember, children are observant and appreciative witnesses of our efforts. They show us we’ve succeeded by copying what we do, mimicking what we say, and becoming some version of us. Compassion is contagious this holiday season.
