As a young man, our founder Danny Thomas had a simple goal: to entertain people and be successful enough at it to provide for his wife and family. But work wasn’t easy to come by.
Unsure of his life’s direction, the struggling entertainer sought guidance from St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes.
Danny asked the saint to “help me find my way in life, and I will build you a shrine.”
During this season of Thanks and Giving, the Thomas family continues to reflect on that spirit of gratitude with this simple message: "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not."
