The Band Perry Partner With St. Jude for Thanksgiving
This year the Band Perry join the St. Jude Thanks and Giving Campaign, which brings together celebrities, media and brands to help raise awareness and funds for the battle to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
"It's such a selfless place," Kimberly Perry says in the above video for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "No family has to worry about the financial constraints of dealing with this sort of an illness. Here, it's all about one thing, and that is finding a cure for these diseases and passing that information on."
Consumers can support St. Jude while shopping at numerous businesses through December. Stores in partnership with St. Jude's Thanks and Giving Campaign include Kmart, Best Buy, Ann Inc., Kay Jewelers, Domino’s, Williams-Sonoma, Inc., HomeGoods, New York & Company, AutoZone, Brooks Brothers, GNC, Dollar General, Claire’s, Carnival Cruise Line, Justice, HSN, Marshalls, Chili’s Grill & Bar and Mazda, among others. Over $588 million has been raised throughout the past 12 years through the annual fundraising.
"We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we receive year after year during the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign,” says Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, in a press release. "Throughout the holiday season people open their hearts to the children of St. Jude and as a result, our doctors and scientists can continue their groundbreaking research and pioneering procedures that help us achieve our landmark survival rates. And, we are able to continue to ensure that no family pays St. Jude for anything — not for treatment, travel, housing or food — because we believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live."
