Personalizing the Mission
For more than 20 years, the Signet Jewelers team has rallied around the mission of St. Jude to support the children and families in Memphis and all around the world benefiting from the world-class research and care that St. Jude provides. Heading into our 21st year of partnership, a new generation of leaders emerged and poured even more heart into their support of St. Jude. At the annual St. Jude Incentive Trip, many Signet leaders recommitted to deeper support for St. Jude on a personal level, laying the groundwork for an amazing Employee Giving campaign. And, for the first time, the adorable plush that supports St. Jude at holiday was named after the St. Jude patient representative, Jordyn and her father, deepening the connection to the St. Jude mission throughout the year.
By bringing a personal St. Jude story to these historic plush, you added an additional layer of meaning and gave your associates something more to share with their customers this holiday season. Even the plush got in on the holiday fun—sharing some great social posts on Facebook and Instagram!
This year’s annual Team Member Giving campaign caught fire early, and thanks to the This Shirt Saves Lives incentives for those giving at the Partner In Hope level, your team achieved a level of giving that was unprecedented. Even more exciting was how many people were thrilled to have their t-shirts and wear them proudly at the Charity Session at Manager’s Leadership Conference.
The passion that was felt in the Take it Back Conclusion of the Incentive Trip caught fire in the hearts of Signet employees all over the country. With a little help from the St. Jude This Shirt Saves Lives t-shirt incentive, Signet turned in their largest, most exciting Team Member Giving campaign in years. Between a soft-launch with District Managers in June, a fun and friendly competitive campaign and a big push at this year’s Manager’s Leadership Conference, your amazing team raised over $283,500, an increase of 118% year over year, from individual and payroll deduction giving. Your generosity continues to amaze us, even after all these years. Seeing the pride your team has in supporting St. Jude was inspiring, as always.
The meaningful updates to the plush campaign, connected them straight to the mission of St. Jude by renaming them in honor of our patient, was a beautiful way to round out a committed and generous year of raising funds and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
And finally, we were thrilled to once again host Signet leaders at the St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend, where they were able to run for a reason—showing their support for the kids of St. Jude by hitting the pavement in races that ranged from the 5k to Half Marathon. Each making the trip to Memphis and putting in their all to make sure that one day no child will die in the dawn of life.
Signet, your level of commitment is astounding, and the impact you have had on the hospital and on the treatment of kids facing life-threatening illnesses all over the world is practically immeasurable. Thank you for your continued commitment and support.
