‘Melting Pot’ of partners raise millions for St. Jude, pediatric cancer research

Appealing to patrons and consumers of 70 global brands partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers wants America to #GiveThanks.

“The continued generosity of our corporate partners, celebrity friends and the millions of holiday shoppers who support our mission year after year is a blessing for which we are very grateful,” said Marlo Thomas, St. Jude’s national outreach director.

Created by Marlo, Terre and Tony Thomas – children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas – the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign asks people to “Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not” in order to help St. Jude continue its noble mission.

A “vital part” of the 55-year-old organization’s “fundraising efforts,” the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign has raised millions of dollars since its inception in 2004.

“It is because of their efforts that we are able to continue groundbreaking research and treatment all while keeping our founding promise that no family receives a bill from St. Jude for anything — not for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live,” Thomas said.
