Fixer Upper’s Chip & Joanna Gaines Donate $1.5 Million to St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines have made a big donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

The Fixer Upper stars surprised patients with a $1.5 million check last week in Memphis, Tenn., People reports.

They also presented the St. Jude Target House with a new playhouse that they designed.

The couple reportedly wore bumblebee headbands while hanging out with the children, playing the piano and singing songs, and reading Joanna’s kids book, “We Are the Gardeners.”

Chip and Joanna raised the donations through a social media campaign, #ChipInChallenge, with help from Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Kacey Musgraves, and more.

“When we heard that the space outside of Target House could use a little love, we knew right away that we wanted to create a sweet playhouse for the kids to enjoy,” Joanna Gaines shared. “There’s something so special about spending time together outside and while we’re hopeful that these families will not have to stay here for very long, we wanted to create a retreat for them to explore while they are here.”

“As we walked in today, a little boy told us that he’s ‘demo day-ing’ his cancer treatment and that’s pretty much the best thing I’ve ever heard,” Chip Gaines added. “In our world, demo day marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of a newer, more exciting one. And that’s exactly what we want for you — we’re pulling for each and every one of you.”
