St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 10th Annual Thanks and Giving Campaign


Mommy is a huge supporter of the St. Jude Children Research Hospital. It's actually one of our charities and every year mommy donates to them. Want to know why? Mommy hates that C word. My grandpa died from it and mommy hates knowing that anyone has it. Especially little ones like me. The great thing about St. Jude's is that no child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay. Isn't that awesome? Their Thanks and Giving Campaign helps to make all of that possible. If you remember I recently did a post highlighting one of our shopping trips with mommy. On that trip we happened to pick up Teddy Rudy benefiting St. Judes Children's Research Hospital. We also bought one last year that now sits right along with Rudy. There is nothing better knowing that a purchase you made can help someone in dire need. 

The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign is a holiday tradition unlike any other. This successful multichannel campaign brings celebrities, media, retail and corporate partners together in an unprecedented way each holiday season to raise funds and awareness for St. Jude.


During the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, many of America’s most respected companies want to make it easy for their customers to give thanks this holiday season.
Here's a bit more information about St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital for those who have never heard of them before. After reading it how can you not help?
