(ATLANTA, GA) – Sharity Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit health care sharing ministry, continues its tradition of charitable giving for the benefit of its membership and community. Sharity uses a portion of funds collected from its membership to distribute to people in need. In December of 2018, Sharity dedicated its charitable donations to five organizations; the largest contribution went to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Sharity and St. Jude both believe in finding cures and saving our precious children from debilitating conditions, diseases and disorders. Danny Thomas founded St. Jude on the idea that “No child should die in the dawn of life.”
Because of Sharity’s donation and others, the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will never send a bill to families for treatment, travel, housing or food. Children receive the best quality treatment at no cost to the patient or family. Among other diseases, St. Jude is an industry leader in fighting childhood cancer, and with their help, survival rates have dramatically increased from 20% to 80%. Our Christian faith leads us to give cheerfully, and St. Jude does just that for our children and their families.
William Thead, Sharity’s CEO, reminds us of God’s teachings: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:6-8).”
