St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® And More Than 70 Leading National Brands Kick Off The Season Of Giving With Annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® Campaign

Kmart, Best Buy, ANN INC., Kay® Jewelers, Domino’s, Williams-Sonoma, Inc., HomeGoods and Others Unite To Help End Childhood Cancer

Now in its twelfth year, the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign has transformed the holiday season into a time of giving thanks by raising awareness and funds for the ongoing battle to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The campaign unites celebrities, media, retail and corporate partners in asking consumers to donate while they shop and support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.st-jude-childrens-hospital-logo-beauty-and-the-beat-blog

Founded by the late actor/entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE-designated COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTER devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. 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.

What began as a holiday-focused fundraising effort by St. Jude has now grown into an annual tradition that has raised more than $588 million. These funds support St. Jude’s mission to provide cutting-edge treatment and pursue visionary research.

We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we receive year after year during the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign,” said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.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.stjude-thanksandgiving

Beginning in November and running through the end of December, consumers can support St. Jude while they shop at a variety of businesses representing a cross-section of premier brands in retail, restaurant, travel, hospitality, media and beyond. Top returning campaign partners 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, to name a few.

Kmart’s long history of success in supporting charitable causes is due to the generosity of our Shop Your Way members, customers and associates. We’re proud of the impact our results have made for the families of St. Jude and thankful to St. Jude for its tireless work to defeat cancer and other diseases in children. St. Jude made holiday shopping at Kmart more rewarding and we’re excited to support an organization that clearly means so much to our members,” said Alasdair James, President and Chief Member Officer at Kmart.4f7a2d08-09d7-45ed-a3d3-8274f86d93d6

This year, St. Jude partners are expanding and supporting the campaign in a variety of ways – from in-store fundraising to unique cross-promotions, events and online/mobile features.

It is Best Buy’s privilege to partner in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, by making it convenient for our customers to give back while shopping in stores and online during the holidays,” said Sharon McCollam, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Financial Officer at Best Buy. “By adding options to give through our credit card signature pads last year, we made it easier for customers to contribute during the checkout process. As a result of their generosity, we were able to contribute $9.7 million last year, and hope to do even more this year to support the children and families served by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

OTHER PARTNER HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

Several partners are offering merchandise products during the holidays to benefit St. Jude including

Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers, HomeGoods, HSN, Kmart, New York & Company, The Limited, TUMI, Westfield, Williams-Sonoma, Inc. and their portfolio of brands; to name a few.

Entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN launched new collections from David David Meister dresses; DEESIGNS by Dee Hilfiger; Hal Rubenstein‘s new lifestyle collection; an exclusive handbag collection from Joy Gryson (OH by Joy Gryson); and a new handbag line from jewelry guru R.J. Graziano at the Empire Hotel during New York 2014 Spring/Summer Fashion Week in early September.

Our Fall Fashion series is all about easy ways to elevate your look,” says Anne Martin-Vachon, Chief Merchandising Officer HSN-Logofor HSN. “By introducing lines from notables like Hal Rubenstein and David Meister, as well as expanding collections from leading HSN designers like Dee Hilfiger and R.J. Graziano, we are making high level fashion accessible for the every day.”

Red carpet guru David Meister launched his first HSN exclusive collection on September 26. This included an assortment of day, evening and cocktail dresses inspired by his signature looks and best sellers from his archives. Long recognized as one of the most well-respected figures in fashion, he understands how to masterfully present the feminine form in a way that flatters curves and embodies glamour. The consumer friendly collection ranges from $149.90 to $259.90 with elevated fabrics in warm colors.

Following her first handbag launch with HSN, fashion model and high-end handbag designer Dee Hilfiger announced–was on hand, with her husband, Tommy, at the HSN Fall Fashion Suite for– the launch of her expanded lifestyle collection for HSN on September 25. DEESIGNS by Dee Hilfiger was created with a busy, modern woman in mind. During the design process, Dee created coordinating footwear, handbag and outerwear pieces, presenting the DEESIGNS buyer with a one-stop shop for “head-to-toe shopping.” Dee has combined affordable luxury with thoughtful styles to create a lifestyle collection that embodies polished, effortless dressing. Prices range from $79 to $239.

DEESIGNS by Dee Hilfiger

Mrs. Hilfiger patterned this collection based on, first and foremost, what she felt women needs to get through the day. This meant, for her, beautifully-designed slip-on loafers and handbags that are designed to carry everything a woman will need from the moment she gets up (to get the kids off to school) to the moment she goes to bed (after making sure her kids are safely asleep). This is a beautifully thought out, seasonless, well-priced collection that will hold any woman in good stead she navigates her life.

Hal Rubenstein talking about the his new Hal Rubenstein (Lifestyle) Collection

Esteemed fashion editor, director and stylist for over 25 years, Hal Rubenstein launches his first ever collection with HSN on September 27. Ranging from $39.90 to $299.90, the Hal Rubenstein Collection includes a range of accessories, body conscious separates, suede footwear, and tailored outerwear. The pieces are designed in harmony so a woman can open her closet and instead of saying, “What am I going to wear?” she will ask herself, “What do I get to wear?” Pulling from Hal’s industry experience, his designs are not driven by the trendy whims of fashion, but instead reflect a woman’s own personal style and what flatters her unique shape.

Speaking at the press preview at the Empire Hotel, Mr. Rubenstein spoke of advocating for clothes that works for the average American woman. “Style is about you, not the celebrities you see on the television or in magazines,” he remarked to reporters on the scene. “My collection is about ALL women. These are clothes that [should] make you proud of yourself and who you are. Every woman is unique, every body shape is unique. At InStyle, we celebrate all women and their real selves, as do this collection.” Continue reading
