Yesterday marked the first official day of winter. And what better way to prepare for the season and spread last-minute holiday cheer than by purchasing The Giving Hat™, which supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® patients and their families. Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude, recently welcomed three St. Jude patients to help her shop for hats at the Astor Place Kmart in New York City.
Kmart (the hospital’s No. 1 supporter with more than $76.7 million raised) collaborated with St. Jude this year to design The Giving Hat™ to raise awareness and funds for the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Since 2006, Kmart Shop Your Way® members, customers and associates have embodied the holiday spirit with their generous support of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Thanks and Giving® campaign One dollar from the sale of each $5 hat will be added to the millions of dollars Kmart stores are raising this holiday season for St. Jude.* The Giving Hat™ is available exclusively at all Kmart stores and online at kmart.com/stjude while supplies last.
*Kmart will donate $1 from the sale of The Giving Hat to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital now – Dec. 31, 2015 with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000 to St. Jude.
