America's favorite home improvement couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, have captured hearts with their latest project, a playhouse they designed for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The designing couple, who starred in HGTV's 'Fixer Upper' for 5 years, also made a $1.5 million dollar donation to the hospital. The funds were raised through a social media campaign.

The #ChipInChallenge was announced on the couples Instagram page on June 4th, and they wanted to beat the $230,000 that was raised for the hospital the year before.  Check out the video from St Jude below. Well done, Mr and Mrs Gaines!

So here's the deal, in 2017 we raised $230,000 for @StJude, and in return, I agreed to shave my head. We all came together for something big and what we were able to accomplish together was really special. We are heading back to St. Jude this year and I'd like to bring them an even bigger check! I'm calling in some favors and pulling together a group of people for what we are calling the #ChipinChallenge—Here's how it works: Go to, select who you’re "rooting for" and donate under their name. Every penny we raise will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and it’s a fact that when we all chip in towards one goal, nothing can stop us. We've got till June 11, so spread the word!
