GUEST BLOG: Support St. Jude's Hospital with Coton Colors

This September, Coton Colors has really made a difference in supporting St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital. When asked to team up to help raise support, Swoozie’s was so excited to jump on board! The Happy Everything Inspire Mug not only is cute, but 100% of the retail price goes to St. Judes! It’s that amazing! Read on to learn more about Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and how this mug is helping make an impact from the President of Coton Colors, Laura Johnson! #inspirehappy

September brings Childhood Cancer Awareness Month- a month so near and dear to my heart as Coton Colors supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through our Attached to a Cause program. Years ago, I was asked to design custom products for St. Jude to help provide inspiration and happiness to their supporters and patients. After being asked to lead art therapy workshops for their patients, attending the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Expo year after year and visiting and touring the hospital, my love for them has only grown deeper.  

The pieces we design for St. Jude are always some of our favorites to design each year. Not only do I love that every piece created is sold to bring awareness to St. Jude and the work that they do, but the products and designs are often inspired by the artwork of patients treated at St. Jude. That’s why this year, we were thrilled to design a product to raise awareness during September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and share the impact St. Jude has on so many families. The entire retail price of this limited-edition mug will be donated directly to St. Jude.  Yes, you read that right. The ENTIRE retail cost! 

We get asked often, why St. Jude, and not other local hospitals. St. Jude is a hospital unlike any other. Families never receive a bill when their child is treated at St. Jude. Never, ever! Plus, treatments at St. Jude helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. And they won’t stop until there is no child who dies from cancer. With more than 75 percent of the budgeted costs for the hospital covered by public contributions, we ask that you join us in support of them with the purchase of this mug. 

We hope that this mug and the commitment that St. Jude has to ending childhood cancer inspires you to join us in supporting them to end the awful disease. Purchase your mug {or mugs!} today – and help us share a little happy with those who need it most. 

Cheers!

Laura
