THE 12TH ANNUAL ST. JUDE THANKS AND GIVING® CAMPAIGN
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Created by Marlo, Terre and Tony Thomas—children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas—the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign has grown into an annual tradition with tremendous public support last year raising 100 million dollars. Kicking off Thanksgiving week and running through the end of December, the campaign is an unprecedented union of celebrities, media, retail and more than 70 of the nation’s leading, national brands that ask consumers to donate while they shop and support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. What began as a holiday-focused fundraising effort by St. Jude has now grown into an annual tradition that has raised more than $588 million. These funds support St. Jude’s mission to provide cutting-edge treatment and pursue visionary research.
Everyone can help raise funds that are vital to the research and treatment taking place at St. Jude by visiting participating partners during November and December or stjude.org. Partners in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign include: Kmart, Best Buy, Ann Taylor, Kay Jewelers, Domino’s, Williams-Sonoma, Inc., HomeGoods, New York & Company, Autozone, Brooks Brothers, GNC, Dollar General, Claire’s, Gymboree, Justice, HSN, Marshalls, Mazda, and many more. These businesses help raise funds and awareness for St. Jude through in-store and e-commerce initiatives, specialty merchandise and social media engagement. Thanks to support generated through campaigns like St. Jude Thanks and Giving, 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.
This holiday season Jimmy Kimmel makes his St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign debut alongside returning celebrity friends Jennifer Aniston, Sofia Vergara, Michael Strahan, Luis Fonsi and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas. Collectively, they star in national television spots and a star-studded movie trailer asking people to help transform the holiday season into a time of giving thanks by raising funds and awareness for the ongoing battle to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The national television spots debuted on Monday, Nov. 23, and run through the end of the year.
St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since we opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Join the St. Jude mission by visiting stjude.org or following St. Jude on facebook.com/stjude and twitter.com/stjude.
