ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Domino's (NYSE: DPZ), the largest pizza company in the world based on global retail sales, is ready to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® online and in stores across the country. The campaign, which begins today and runs for 11 weeks through Jan. 5, 2020, is the 16th St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign for Domino's. Since naming St. Jude its national charity partner in 2004, Domino's has raised more than $57 million to help St. Jude with its life-saving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Domino's will give consumers numerous channels to donate to help the kids of St. Jude, including through their orders – either online, over the phone or in the stores.
Customers can also help the kids of St. Jude by purchasing the St. Jude Meal Deal – a bundle that includes two medium one-topping Hand Tossed pizzas, a 16-piece order of Parmesan Bread Bites, an eight-piece order of Cinnamon Bread Twists, a two-liter of Coca-Cola® and a $1 donation to St. Jude – for $19.99.
"Everyone at Domino's is looking forward to another successful year of raising awareness and funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital," said Ritch Allison, Domino's CEO. "We invite our customers to help us support this incredible organization doing such important work in the fight against childhood cancer."
"I give thanks this holiday season for the loyal support of Domino's as we kick off the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign," said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "The caring and unwavering commitment of Domino's, their dedicated employees and generous customers to the children of St. Jude is instrumental in helping raise the necessary funds to ensure that families never pay St. Jude for anything – not for treatment, travel, housing or food – because we believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live."
