As November is a month of thanks and giving BPS is promoting a campaign that is the epitome of these two words. The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Thanks and Giving campaign. This campaign allows children and their families to focus solely on treatment without having to worry about the costs.
According to Hammermill Paper’s press release, “St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Created by Marlo, Terre and Tony Thomas – children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas – the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign began as a holiday-focused fundraising effort and has grown into an annual tradition that has raised more than $387 million for research and treatment in the ongoing battle to end childhood cancer. Kicking off Thanksgiving week and running through the end of December, this year marks its 10th anniversary of asking the public to, “Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.”
In 2011, Hammermill became a corporate sponsor of the Thanks and Giving Campaign and has raised more than $521,000 to date. Beginning November 1st, customers who buy select reams of Hammermill paper will see original artwork on the front of Hammermill reams, drawn by St. Jude patients. Customers can also read the patient’s story on the back of the reams. Also, Hammermill Paper will donate $1.00 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for every new fan they receive on Facebook. If they are able to reach 20,000 fans by December 31st, they will donate an additional $10,000! So, when you buy Hammermill Paper during the months of November and December you help contribute to saving a child’s life.
Remember these donations allow St. Jude’s to continue to conduct basic/clinical research and the treatment of catastrophic childhood diseases.
