Carnival Cruise Lines Partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

by Lori on November 1, 2014

Carnival has been a partner with St. Jude over 7 years now and they are committed to  raising funds for research and for the families at St. Jude.

 

The kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are some of the bravest, coolest kids anywhere… and Carnival guests, crew and travel partners have shown them some incredible support over the last few years. Through all of our shared efforts, we’ve raised more than $7 million to help fight childhood cancer.

Hand-in-hand, we’ve passed milestone after milestone, and are getting closer to our eventual goal — $8 million over the course of seven years — and today we’re even more committed to St. Jude than ever before.

We’re so devoted to the cause that we’ve also become the Official Celebration Partner for St. Jude. Having a good time is Carnival’s specialty, and we’ll take any chance we can get to help others celebrate. That’s why we’re supporting birthdays at St. Jude. When patients celebrate their special day, Carnival brings the cake! What’s more, Carnival supports the annual St. Jude Teen Formal, where legendary spin master DJ IRIE gets the party moving… and keeps everyone grooving.

 

 

When we sailed with Carnival it was apparent their love for the partnership they have with St. Jude. Proceeds from Beary Cuddly Workshop went to St. Jude as well as tshirt and bracelet sales that said “Groove for St. Jude”.

While we were on our cruise, on September 5th, my friends son was diagnosed with High Risk B Cell/ALL (Leukemia). It was a punch in the gut for us as here we were, enjoying a beautiful family vacation when my friends world was just turned upside down. The kids immediately asked what they could do. And while Rhett is not being treated at St. Jude, we knew their research could eventually be a cure for Rhett and many children all over the world. We bought tshirts and bracelets. The kids each made a stuffed animal at the Beary Cuddly workshop including one for Rhett that we delivered when we got home.

This is just a small part of how Carnival and it’s guests can help make a difference. You do not have to sail with Carnival to make a donation. Anyone can help and I highly encourage you to do so. No donation is too small.
