The Destination XL Group Once Again Joins The St. Jude Thanks and Giving® Campaign, Supporting Research and Treatment of Childhood Cancer and Other Life-Threatening Diseases.
The DXL Group is once again partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign, an unprecedented union of celebrities, media, and more than 70 of the nation’s leading brands and companies that ask consumers to donate while they shop during the holiday season to help St. Jude advance research and treatment of childhood cancer.
This is the eleventh year the DXL Group has participated in the campaign, which began as a holiday-focused fundraising effort and has grown into an annual tradition that has raised more than $6.3 million thanks to tremendous public support. These funds are critical given that no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food–because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Beginning Thanksgiving week and running through the end of the year, DXL Group’s customers can support the campaign by donating at their local store. In addition, the DXL Group will have a variety of fundraisers at the corporate office.
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 overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago, and they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. The hospital freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, so every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
