St. Jude declared it "Kmart Day" on its campus in Memphis, Tenn. to celebrate Kmart's unprecedented success in the 10th annual Thanks and Giving® campaign. Kmart's record-breaking $21.9 million fundraising total marked the largest single donation ever made to St. Jude from a corporate partner. Millions of Kmart customers and Shop Your Way members supported the program during the 2013 holiday season and made giving part of their holiday tradition.
Kmart surprised St. Jude patient Brooke over the holidays when we asked her to attend a special St. Jude event and out from the aisles appeared teen actress and model Peyton List, star of one of Brooke's favorite TV shows. Together, Brooke and Peyton went on a toys shopping spree, selecting two cartfulls of toys from the Kmart Fab 15 list and more to be sent to the hospital in Memphis, to be enjoyed by patients who will be treated over the coming year.
Last year St. Jude honored Kmart and its generous members & customers with the creation of a beautiful mural in the Translational Trials Building as part of its support of the St. Jude LIFE and After Completion of Therapy Clinic Presented by Kmart. Enjoy this time-lapse video on the making-of!
