Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 30, 2010
The Swanx, home of the original hand-painted clogs has announced that April 2010 is Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital month.
For the month of April, The Swanx will donate a portion of the profits from every pair of hand-painted Sanita clogs sold to St. Jude. In addition, a donation of five cents will be made for every new Swanx Facebook fan added during the month.
“We believe in giving back to the community - both at the local and the national level,” says Curtis Johnson, co-founder of The Swanx. “We are proud to do our part for Saint Jude.”
A bit about Saint Jude - “St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made at St. Jude have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
"St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases.
"All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family’s ability to pay."
The Swanx is also proud to announce the participation of Sanita Clogs in the effort to support St. Jude. “Sanita is an essential business partner for The Swanx,” says Johnson, “and we are so pleased that they have agreed to help us raise funds and awareness for St. Jude.”
Look for upcoming charitable campaigns from The Swanx and Sanita in support of The Animal Rescue Site, Go Red For Women, The Pink Ribbon Campaign, Autism Speaks and Make A Wish Foundation.
