Sharing Warmth and Joy with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®

20161206StJude-featureSt. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their mission is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.® And families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Because of this incredible commitment, St. Jude is very close to our hearts.

In honor of National Mitten Day today, and to celebrate our St. Jude Merry Mittens Campaign, we were honored to lend our support to the cause and donate a collection of colorful mittens and hats to St. Jude for its winter-themed Mitten Party. The children and their families made gingerbread-house crafts, enjoyed treats of mitten-shaped pops, and picked out a new pair of mittens and a cozy hat to stay warm this winter season.

So today, on National Mitten Day, we’re asking for your help in supporting an incredible cause.

Through December 24, you can make a donation to St. Jude just by taking a picture outside bundled up in your coziest winter gear (and don’t forget your mittens!). Upload your mitten photo to Instagram, or here, with #stjudemerrymittens and we’ll make a $10 donation to St. Jude (up to $15,000).

Thank you for joining us in supporting St. Jude.

The photos from the event brought a lot of smiles to us here at the Garnet Hill offices, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing them too.
