Thanks & Giving was created by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Marlo Thomas, the daughter of St. Jude's founder, Danny Thomas, to help put meaning and true giving back into the holidays. This national campaign allows us to offer "thanks" for the healthy children in our lives while "giving" to help children everywhere who are desperately ill and battling to stay alive. It was created to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital '- the world's epicenter of pediatric medical research.
iVillage invites you to read an excerpt from the new book Thanks & Giving: All Year Long by Marlo Thomas and Friends '- and discover the lessons we can share with our children about charitable giving. Then see what Marlo Thomas has to say about her book and the lessons she learned from her father. Buy some of the lovely, limited-edition holiday products to benefit the hospital. And meet an iVillage mom with a special story to tell.
