It’s nearly Christmas. It’s that time of the year when we go out and spend all kinds of money on our children, friends, and family. It’s also that time of the year when we throw our change into the Red Kettle and donate Toys to Tots, but did you know that St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® has a charity inspired campaign called Thanks and Giving going on right now that allows you to “give” while purchasing gifts for your loved ones?
Every year, St. Jude creates signature gifts that are a hit for everyone on your list. These range from ornaments designed by St. Jude patients, kids cooking tools, jewelry, golf accessories and much more. Join us as we talk about “thanks” and “giving” and how 100% of the proceeds of these gifts benefit the hospital and kids.
This December, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and its St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign partners will give holiday shoppers new ways to give thanks for the healthy kids in their lives, and give to those who are not.
Now in its ninth year, the campaign and its partners have raised awareness and more than $312 million in funds to help St. Jude children with cancer and other deadly diseases with pioneering research and exceptional care. Support of these partners is critical as no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
The fact that no family every pays for anything at St. Jude just amazes me! It makes me realize just how much our contribution really matters. I have never needed services from St. Jude and I haven’t known anyone who ever has but I can definitely see the value in what they are offering families in true times of need.
Please help me spread the word about what St. Jude is doing and help me reach out to others about this great opportunity for everyone to buy gifts that give back.
St. Jude is THANKING AND GIVING to YOU! Giveaway
