Chip And Joanna Gaines donated $1.5M to "St. Jude Children's Research Hospital" this week.

The popular stars raised the money during a social media challenge they created known as the #chipinchallenge and revealed a new playhouse designed by the couple.

“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.”

Good job Chip and Joanna!
