St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® will kick off a nationwide campaign called “THIS SHIRT SAVES LIVES” featuring some of the industry’s biggest names and influencers in order to create a giving movement. Nashville photographers, John Shearer and Andres Martinez, have lent their talents to the campaign, shooting many of the over 80 artist images that will be featured.
The campaign will be supported by St. Jude Country Cares radio partners to cover more than 120 markets in December. The on-air push will coincide with a social push as artists and influencers wear and share photos in THIS SHIRT on their socials.
St. Jude has long given apparel as a thank you to “Partners In Hope,” donors who give $20 per month to the hospital’s lifesaving work. THIS SHIRT SAVES LIVES T-shirt will exclusively be available to those that become Partners In Hope.
“St. Jude is an amazing organization, and whenever you see that name you trust that it’s the best of all causes,” said award-winning singer, songwriter and longtime St. Jude supporter Luke Bryan. “It’s important for me to be a part of causes that inspire people. It’s a life-changing experience to get to see St. Jude and meet the kids who are fighting for their lives.”
St. Jude officially launched the campaign with an industry-wide reception at the Country Music Association in Nashville on Monday, December 4, 2017.
Confirmed artists include: Brett Eldredge, Brothers Osborne, Cassadee Pope, Chris Janson, Chris Young, Cole Swindell, Darius Rucker, Dustin Lynch, Hunter Hayes, Jake Owen, Jon Pardi, Josh Turner, Kelsea Ballerini, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris, Rascal Flatts, Scotty McCreery, and Thomas Rhett.
Since 1989, Country Cares for St. Jude Kids has raised more than $750 million for the kids of St. Jude.
