talkshoplive Announces Holiday Season Partnership With St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Digital retail platform talkshoplive announced its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and launched a “donate” button across the site to raise funds for the holiday season as part of the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. This new donate button, which will be added to EVERY checkout site wide, gives buyers and sellers a way to give back.
The Thanks and Giving campaign unites world-class brands and their generous customers to support a common goal — to build awareness and raise funds to support vital research and treatment. St. Jude continues to uphold its promise that no family will receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
"We continue to strive to find new ways for live commerce to create solutions that are needed in this COVID-19 era and beyond. We have heard from countless organizations that the realities of the pandemic have drastically changed their ability to fundraise, especially those that relied heavily on in-store checkout donations during the holidays. The donate button will open up live commerce to charities, providing a much-needed avenue to connect with potential donors to support critical initiatives. We are honored to launch the donate button with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an iconic organization whose mission to help children is not only inspiring, but necessary,” said Bryan Moore, CEO of talkshoplive.
The campaign launched November 9 and will run through the 2020 holiday season, with the option to donate to St. Jude on every checkout on talkshoplive. talkshoplive will continue to profile the "donate" button on its platform post-holiday, encouraging a variety of charities to join live commerce as a meaningful way to fundraise, interact and grow their digital communities.
“It means so much to have talkshoplive join our St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, especially in this very difficult year," said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. “We all know that the days ahead may continue to be hard, but they won’t be impossible — because nothing is impossible when we work together. Because of talkshoplive’s support and participation in the campaign, St. Jude can continue to expand our research, optimize our treatments and never give up until we end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
