Today is one of our favorite days, Giving Tuesday, and we are so excited to be donating 100% of our proceeds from today's sales to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! While our impact may be little, theirs is not. We are so thankful for the work that St. Jude does and we are so fortunate for the opportunity to contribute even just a little. This year, two of our team members were able to see first hand the impact that St. Jude has made and they are forever changed after that experience.
Amor has been so blessed over the past 8 years to be constantly growing despite facing so many uncertainties whether is is economic, weather related, the pandemic, etc. Putting giving back at the top of our priority list each year not only gives us the motivation to keep going when things get challenging but also makes it so worth it. If something as simple for us as giving our proceeds for one day can give a child more joy and comfort during such a trying time, who wouldn’t make that happen?
This year, two of our team members were able to see first hand the impact that St. Jude has made. Here is a little bit about how that trip has changed them forever!
"This trip taught me so much and was impactful! Hearing patients and their parents speak was so moving. St Jude offers the best possible medical care at no cost to the patients family so this is why donations are so incredibly important and why we are helping raise money and awareness!" -Mamie
"I always knew about St. Jude but I never fully understood until after attending St. Jude Country Cares. Between the speakers of patients, their parents and medical professionals you can’t help but feel so connected to this hospital and want to help. Their fight becomes your fight. I’m a new mom and I think that added a whole other layer for my experience. I’m so grateful and thankful to know St.Jude is doing everything in their power to fight childhood cancer and fund a cure." -Brittany
We also have an incredible affection for the work that St. Jude does after hearing the story of one of our team-members, Chloe, who was diagnosed with cancer at only 9 years old. Hear about Chloe's journey and fall in love with her just like we did with our video below.
We want to give a special thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to everyone who shopped with us today and helped us contribute to this amazing cause. Our customers are the most amazing.
