#UglySweaterforBetter, A New Addition to Kmart’s Annual Campaign to Raise Millions for Lifesaving Research and Treatment of Childhood Cancer and Other Life-Threatening Diseases

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., 2017-Nov-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — ‘Tis the season to wear the funniest, craziest and most ridiculously awesome ugly holiday sweaters. Kmart has launched #UglySweaterforBetter—a social media campaign that asks people to show off their favorite ugly sweaters in selfies, photos and videos while challenging others to do the same—to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Starting today through December 24, Kmart will donate $1.00 to St. Jude* for every qualifying Facebook, Instagram or Twitter post that tags @Kmart and @stjude and includes the campaign hashtag #UglySweaterforBetter.

Backing this first-of-its-kind campaign built upon the sharing of ugly sweaters is a wide array of Kmart and St. Jude celebrity supporters and donors, including Adam Levine, Jaclyn Smith, Lucy Hale, Reggie Bush, Raven-Symonè, Camilla Belle, Olivia Holt, Bryan Greenberg, and many more. They will challenge other celebrities, family members, friends and fans to give back this holiday season.”Kmart has been selling ugly holiday sweaters for decades, and our members just eat them up every year. They are a fabulous fad that everyone loves!” said Kelly Cook, Chief Marketing Officer for Kmart. “What better way to spread holiday cheer for a good cause than by wearing your silliest, wackiest, straight-up tackiest ugly sweaters to benefit the patients and families of St. Jude? This relationship means so much to Kmart’s associates and members, and we ask for people of all ages to join in on the fun, strike a pose and help us raise a ton of money for this special organization.”Since 2006, Kmart has been one of the top fundraising corporate partners for St. Jude and raised more than $105 million for the hospital’s patients and families.

“Every year Kmart associates and shoppers open their hearts to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude through their incredible support of the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign,” said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “As a result of their efforts, Kmart has raised a remarkable $105 million for St. Jude, more than any company in the hospital’s history, allowing St. Jude to continue groundbreaking research and treatment all while keeping our founding promise that no family receives a bill from St. Jude for anything — not for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.”

In addition to the social media challenge, members can support the #UglySweaterforBetterfundraising initiative by purchasing an exclusive $5.00 holiday bear ornament at Kmart stores or online at Kmart.com.

HSN teams up with Marlo Thomas to launch her first apparel and accessories collection, That Woman!

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., 2016-Nov-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Entertainment and lifestyle retailer HSN has partnered with award-winning actress, author and role model, Marlo Thomas, to launch That Woman!, her first apparel and accessories collection.  The casually chic and sophisticated collection, That Woman!, launches exclusively with HSN on Thursday, January 19th.

Marlo became a fashion icon when she burst onto the scene as America’s first single working girl, Ann Marie, in her television series “That Girl”.  Through the years, she has brought her fun and sophisticated fashion sense to her everyday life as she’s traveled across the country, speaking to women and raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  These women have become the inspiration for Marlo’s debut line, one that encourages them to define and embrace their own style.

“HSN has aligned seamlessly with my vision,” said Marlo. “As I’ve grown from a girl to a woman, I’ve come to believe even stronger that our clothes should never narrowly define us, but free us to enjoy the adventure of fashion — a signature style that makes us feel vibrant and confident and look great, too.  I’m so excited to share what I’ve learned over the years with HSN customers and women looking for feminine and sassy clothing options that work for all ages and body types.”

“As a company, we are so inspired by Marlo and everything that she has accomplished,” stated Vanessa Dusold, HSN’s  SVP of Merchandising, Apparel & Accessories. “She truly believes in giving back and empowering women through fashion and style. Marlo has exquisite taste and we’re excited to share this collection with her fans and our customers.”

Marlo Thomas will be live on HSN on Thursday, January 19th, during The List with Colleen Lopez, from 9-11pm EST.

Retailer will donate a portion of sales from patient-inspired holiday gifts to support St. Jude’s mission to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., 2016-Nov-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — Giving back this holiday season is easy thanks to Kmart’s long-standing collaboration with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Kmart is bringing back The Giving Hat™ along with a suite of other special gifts to benefit this charitable organization. These symbols of support will drive awareness and raise money to help in the fight against childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases.

Cancer is diagnosed in approximately 175,000 children under the age of 14 every year, and thanks to ground-breaking research and therapies, more than 80 percent of U.S. childhood cancer patients are now long-term survivors. Kmart’s participation in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving®campaign helps ensure that no patient receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Kmart shoppers and associates have given back through the purchase of limited edition gifts and in store donations since 2006 – making Kmart the No. 1 supporter of St. Jude with more than $92.8 million raised over the past decade.

“In our 10th year of partnership, we are thankful and humbled to support St. Jude in its mission of finding cures and saving children,” said Alasdair James, Kmart president. “Kmart’s customers and associates are constantly inspired by the patients, families and medical staff at St. Jude and our commitment is fueled by their determination, love and unbelievable courage that they exude every day. If you would like to join us in supporting this endeavor, please go to Kmart.com or visit us in store to make a donation. Together we really can defeat childhood cancer.”

This year, Kmart presents five exclusive products that will benefit St. Jude and are perfect for gifting this holiday season:

  • 2016 The Giving Hat: A fashionable, one-size fits all, beanie-style winter hat, embroidered with a message inspired by St. Jude patients, #LOVE.
  • 2016 Holiday Bear Ornaments: Collectible holiday keepsake ornaments available in two colors, pink and blue, are inscribed with “2016” to commemorate this year’s ornament style.
  • “Glow Green for St. Jude” Light Bulb: Small gestures can make a big impact. With this LED lime green bulb, change a light at the office or at home to drive awareness of the powerful mission of St. Jude.
  • St. Jude Bear Necklace and Earrings: Limited edition necklace and earrings that feature the St. Jude signature Bear are an elegant way to show support for the children and families at St. Jude. (Necklace and earrings sold separately.)

A portion of the proceeds for each of these items will be donated to St. Jude, adding to the millions of dollars Kmart stores are raising this holiday season.* All items are available exclusively at Kmart and Kmart.com now through Dec. 24 or while supplies last.

Kmart shoppers can also donate in stores through a $1, $5 or $10 add-on program at check-out in all Kmart stores or online at Kmart.com.

“Kmart is an incredible partner to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “As a result of their incredible employees and Shop Your Way members they have raised more than $92 million to date for the St. Jude mission, more than any other company in the history of St. Jude. Those funds enable our doctors and scientists to continue to pursue lifesaving research and treatments while allowing us to keep my father’s founding promise that no family ever pays St. Jude for anything – not for treatment, travel, housing or food.”

*Kmart will donate $1 from the sale of The Giving Hat, 2016 holiday bear ornaments and Glow Green light bulb and will donate $5 from the sale of the bear jewelry items to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital between 11/8/16– 12/31/16 with a minimum guaranteed donation of $50,000 to St. Jude from The Giving Hat, $100,000 from the 2016 holiday bear ornaments, $25,000 from the Glow Green light bulb and $50,000 from the bear jewelry.
