We were invited to participate in a wonderful and fun charity initiative at Kmart, to benefit the patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

We went on our very own version of a “toy run” along with Marlo Thomas, a St. Jude patient, and Kmart’s K-Club bloggers, filling our #KmartCarts with as many toys as we could. The toys were then donated by Kmart to be given as gifts to current patients at St. Jude.

pic4Since we were all savvy toy-buying moms, our expert shopping spree resulted in more than $10,000 worth of toys that will be distributed at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis!  Along with Kmart’s K-Club bloggers, Marlo and a St. Jude patient will stock the #KmartCarts with the hottest toys of the season to donate to families who will spend their holidays at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

It was fun shopping and scheming with the other K-Club moms to make sure that St. Jude patients would score some of the hottest holiday toys.

pic5In other fundraising efforts, Kmart has additionally already raised more than $13 million for St. Jude this holiday season alone.

In 2013, Kmart Shop Your Way members and customers donated a record $21.9 million to St. Jude – the single largest corporate partner donation ever to the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign.  (Check out this haul alone!  The kids will have a great holiday, and so much fun opening these gifts.)

St. Jude recognized Kmart, a partner since 2006, as its Corporate Partner of the Year in 2010, 2011 and 2013, and last year honored Kmart with the “Extraordinary Partner Performance Award,” recognizing its record-breaking fundraising achievement. Funds raised support research and treatment by St. Jude to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
