Have a burger, fight cancer

Go out to Chili's for dinner tonight.  

Today only Chili's is donating 100% of their profits to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

St. Jude is an amazing hospital that never turns away a family for their inability to pay.

From their website:

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.

St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We've built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.

Today is a part of Chili’s “Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer” campaign. During September—which is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month—guests can make a donation to St. Jude and receive a coloring sheet they can decorate and have displayed in the restaurant.

Guests can also purchase Create-A-Pepper T-shirts ($12) or you can purchase 2008 limited edition Chili’s – St. Jude keys ($5) that you can be cut for use at home. Sixty percent of the purchase price of the T-shirt and keys will go to St. Jude.
