I’d like to introduce you to Nylah.
Nylah, like many other 3 year olds, loves riding her tricycle, cooking and watching “Dora the Explorer.” Unlike other 3 year olds, Nylah became a patient of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2010, after she was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor in her left kidney. Now, thanks to St. Jude, Nylah is finished with her treatment and returns for regular checkups, at no cost at all to her or her mother Danielle.
Chili’s is in the brand's ninth annual Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer campaign benefiting St. Jude. This year’s campaign, which runs through September 26, supports St. Jude’s cancer-fighting work through the sale of T-shirts, chili-pepper coloring sheets and zipper pulls with proceeds going to the hospital. However, on one special day, guests can help support St. Jude by simply ordering a meal while dining in the restaurant or to take home.
On Monday, Sept. 24, Chili’s will donate 100 percent of net profits at participating restaurants nationwide to St. Jude in what ChiliHeads call Donate Profits Day. Profits earned on this day will go to support families of patients like Nylah as they bravely face the challenges of childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
This is a great way for you to show your support, and eat a delicious meal!!
