Jennifer Aniston, Sofia Vergara, Michael Strahan, and Luis Fonsi join St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas in leading a star-studded roster of celebrities lending their time and talents in support of the 11th annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. Jon Hamm makes his campaign debut in a 60-second movie trailer that will appear in theaters nationwide beginning in November.
St. Jude Thanks and Giving is an unprecedented union of celebrities, media and more than 60 of the nation’s leading brands and companies that ask consumers to donate while they shop this holiday season to help St. Jude provide cutting-edge treatment and pursue visionary research. The national television commercials and movie theatre trailers, which debut Thanksgiving week and run through the end of the year, will feature Jennifer Aniston and other celebrity friends alongside St. Jude patients.
“I love being a part of the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign,” said Aniston. “This year I appeared with Sam and Waylon in the TV commercials. They are the true stars and I had so much fun spending time with them. I am so inspired with their amazing courage and perseverance. This holiday season you can join the fight against childhood cancer and help St. Jude continue its research to find cures and save the lives of children across America.”
