The Give thanks. Walk. and Thanks and Giving
The Give thanks. Walk. also serves as a grass-roots kickoff to the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. Thanks and Giving is an unprecedented union of celebrities, media, retail and corporate partners that asks consumers to “Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.” Thanks and Giving was created in 2004 by Marlo Thomas and her siblings Terre and Tony Thomas, children of hospital founder Danny Thomas. Funds raised by the campaign support the lifesaving work of St. Jude – to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
