Benefiting Charities

A PORTION OF THIS YEAR’S DESERT SMASH PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT:

ST JUDE is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.

VARIETY – CHARITY OF THE DESERT is dedicated to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of children who are underprivileged and/or have special needs in the Coachella Valley– children who live and grow up with a serious illness, disability or disadvantage. These are extra special children who require a special kind of help. Through hard work, thoughtful stewardship, and single-minded focus on the needs of the young, Variety strives to make a lasting difference in the lives of children, their families, our community, and the world… one need at a time.

SOPHIE'S VOICE FOUNDATION supports Global Health and Wellness initiatives in multicultural communities. Sophie’s Voice Foundation was founded in 2007 by actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker in honor of their daughter Sophie who was diagnosed with Spina Bifida at birth.  By dedicating themselves to a healthy lifestyle they found ways to address not only their daughters mental, physical and medical needs but also the needs of their entire family.  Boris and Nicole have committed their resources and celebrity to educating multicultural communities worldwide on the importance of families and working together to build healthy lifestyles one day at a time.
