Hi everyone, it’s Marlo Thomas for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 2014 marks the 16th year that Kay Jewelers has partnered with St. Jude. And in that time, Kay has raised more than 40 million dollars through a variety of initiatives, including its popular Plush campaign at Kay stores nationwide.
Donations from Kay Jewelers, and you their loyal shoppers, have helped support our commitment to unsurpassed patient care at St. Jude. Kay has been boundless in this effort, from the award-winning Kay Kafe and other vital programs for the hospital, to its incredible sponsorship of our landmark St. Jude Pediatric Cancer Genome Project.
This project has resulted in the release of the largest ever distribution of comprehensive cancer genome data to the global scientific community benefiting children and their families worldwide. None of these groundbreaking advances would be possible without the support of companies like Kay Jewelers and their amazing customers like you.
So thank you for being part of our commitment to finding cures and saving children, and for helping to achieve my father’s dream that one day no child will die in the dawn of life.
Happy holidays to all of you.
