Leading up to #GivingTuesday, the AOL team is giving readers a chance to vote for the organizations they want to see featured on the homepage.

Last week, thousands of readers voted between five charities and asked that 'St. Jude Children's Research Hospital' be the AOL promoted charity of the week.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will appear on AOL.com for a final poll on November 30. The final organization with the most votes will be promoted again on AOL.com, this time on #GivingTuesday. We're excited to provide our support and help champion our nonprofit partners' messages!

Read more about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital below, and vote for your favorite Week 3 nonprofit here.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. They freely share their discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since opening in 1962. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
