If you’ve followed our blog, you know we feel very strongly about supporting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. You may support them yourself. The Giving Hat from Kmart ($5) is an easy way to support St. Jude.
You can buy the hat from Kmart stores and online to support St. Jude and raise funds in awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. These charcoal gray winter hats are one size fits all and offers 3 different St. Jude inspired messages: SMILE, LAUGH A LOT and GIVE THANKS.
Since 2006, Kmart has raised more than $76.7 million to support the patients and families of St. Jude. Kmart will donate $1 (20%) from the sale of each hat to St. Jude (between the dates of 11/8 to 12/31) with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000 to St. Jude.
The budgeted daily operating cost of St. Jude is $2 million. Approximately 75% of the budgeted costs of St. Jude are covered by public contributions.
St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
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.
So, if you like the #TheGivingHat that I’m sporting (thanks St. Jude for sending me one), we urge you to pick one up for this holiday season!
So what are you thankful for this year?
Thank you to St. Jude for sending me the Giving Hat.
