Finding cures. Saving children.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers, and their mission is finding cures and saving children through research and treatment. St. Jude is supported primarily by donations raised by its national fundraising, and families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food while their child is being treated. St. Jude believes all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% in the last 50 years.

St. Jude 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 now use that knowledge to save thousands more children. St. Jude always accepts donations, and another great way to support the mission of St. Jude, and showing your appreciation with the world, is to simply shop some of the very high quality product from their gift shop here: Gift Shop Home Page. These beautiful items are very high quality and all feature the St. Jude logo, helping to spread awareness of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Here are some of the items we particularly love:

In February I love everything that is red, so the reusable tote and St. Jude red long sleeve sweatshirt are great gifts this time of year. The long sleeve knit shirt is comfy and cozy and super soft, and perfect all winter long. It’s also pretty flattering, and a great gift for women. The pretty tote bag (one of several design options) waits for me each morning with my items for the day, so I’m more organized while showing my support for St. Jude. Everything in St. Jude’s gift shop is an item we would buy and use anyway, so purchasing them from St. Jude and supporting research for childhood cancer is something that will make you feel good every time you wear or use one of these items.

We love the insulated coffee tumbler (I seriously ♥︎ it so much!) and use it every day. It’s 18/8 double wall stainless steel inside and out, with a layer of copper to insulate my daily morning coffee up to 16 hours. It holds 12 oz and has a strong push-on lid and features the St. Jude logo, so I proudly tote my coffee around in it as I go about my day (I bring homemade coffee along for my morning commute each day). It’s very sturdy, pretty, the perfect size, and I really love that it’s stainless steel. I had a hard time finding something like this- usually they are plastic or made of aluminum or thin-walled- this is perfect.

A desktop “Love is the greatest gift” block to display on a desk along with the handy stylus pen complete our choices, and I use these daily in my office. I love decorative blocks with messages; this one is very uplifting, and it’s only $6!
