The History of #AndrewTheElf

#AndrewTheElf's Flight for St. Jude originally began in 2016 as a 20 hour fundraiser with the goal of raising $1,500 over the course of the trip.  Within 2 hours that goal was achieved and at the end of the day over $13,000 was donated in flight and online with over 600 individuals donating to the fundraiser.  


In 2017 #AndrewTheElf set the bar high with the goal of raising $20,000 in 20 hours. With the help of countless individuals and thousands of social media shares the goal of $20,000 was not only hit, but blown away with over 1,200 individuals donating bringing in nearly $24,000.


This year he has expanded the fundraiser into a 40 hour trip with the goal of raising $40,000, a amount totally more than the last two years combined.  Over the years the fundraiser has caught the attention of Delta Airlines who now assists in the planning of the event.  While they assist, Andrew still pays for 100% of the flights and fundraising materials in an effort to keep the attention directed to where it needs to be, raising money for the children at St. Jude.
