”Bodyguards for Kids” Fundraising Virtual Event for the children of St. Jude

Updated: Apr 5, 2023

We have amazing news to share with you and we need your support.

We are creating Bodyguards for Kids, a virtual networking and educational fundraising event that will take place every year, and 100% of all donations and event fees will go directly to the children of St. Jude’s. We want this event to serve two purposes: To gather as many donations as we can for the children who so need our help, and provide valuable instruction that our attendees will profit from as well.

Bodyguards for Kids

There will be virtual classes by industry leaders, networking opportunities, and raffle prizes with books and scholarships. At the moment, we need your help as we are finalizing raffle prizes, and are looking for more corporate recruiters for our “Ask a Recruiter” panel, a unique opportunity for all those looking for work in our Craft, to ask the questions regarding interviewing for positions.

We have also created multiple options for an individual or a company to contribute and participate. As time progresses, there will be updates with the event link, donation goals to be reached, and we will announce when you can start donating/book your event participation and the final speakers’ list with the timetable and event itinerary.

The date is set for March 18 and 19, 2023. In times when our industry peers are all going in so many different directions, let’s make this event something to remember and bring us all together as one for a good cause, medical assistance, and support for these young children.

The following attachment will provide some information for you. If you have questions, want to offer a book, a scholarship, a product/gear, or submit your interest to help, please reach out to us at
