I’ve always supported St Jude’s Research Hospital. I think they’re a really well run charity with a really great cause. (St Jude’s covers all the costs for children with catastrophic diseases to come to their hospital/ research center and get care and treatment.) I’ve also always supported Saks so I was really excited to see the two come
together this holiday season for such a great cause. They’re running a few really great programs that give you a variety of ways to support the charity. The first thing they are doing is selling an adorable book called Snowpeople ($16.99). It’s the tale of “…inquisitive snowpeople in search of their own identity…” They stop at Saks along the way of course! It’s a great gift for kids and two dollars from every book goes to St Jude’s 2007 Thanks & Giving Campaign. I’ve already ordered this book for all my friend’s children!
Saks is also selling five WOW gifts. These are truly luxury items for the most special person in your life. They range from a car to an amazing weekend away to front row VIP treatment at a rock concert. Prices range from $55,000 to $542,000 (for the car) but the payoff is huge – you get an amazing gift and the charity gets a sizable donation.
My favorite part of the site, and the most fun, is The Great SNOWPEOPLE Hunt! The idea is to go through the Saks catalog (It’s online for those of you who don’t have a hardcopy) and count all the snowpeople. When you think you have the final number, fill out the entry form and you’ll be entered to win a twenty-one day Antarctic vacation. It’s almost as good as one of our quizzes, right ladies? Saks is donating one dollar for every entry received so count away. This is also a great way to pass time if you are bored at work!
I really believe that the holidays are a time for giving and spreading love. Even if the most you can do is enter the online sweepstakes, I highly encourage you to do so! That dollar could help save a child’s life!
