National In-Store Event to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital

Make to Give for St. Jude – All JOANN Stores Tomorrow

As Cyber Monday continues America’s busiest shopping weekend, retailers are also preparing to embrace the seasonal spirit of Giving Tuesday. Tomorrow, November 28, the nation’s leading fabric and craft retailer, JOANN, is encouraging customers of all ages to get creative with this special day.

At every JOANN store across the nation, shoppers can make holiday ornaments with free supplies, which they can keep or give to loved ones. For every ornament made, JOANN will donate $1 to its newest charitable partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The Make to Give campaign is also living digitally, as people share photos of their handmade ornaments and special messages to the children of St. Jude on social channels using #maketogive.

This effort comes as the retailer launches a partnership with one of the nation’s most renowned hospitals. In addition to the Make to Give event, customers can also donate to St. Jude in all of JOANN’s nearly 900 stores, and online at www.joann.com/st-jude.

Jessica Meuse Debuts New Music At MyMusicRX Bedstock Festival

Country artist and American Idol Top 4 Finalist, Jessica Meuse, will debut her new music video entitled, “Love Her Better,” at MyMusicRx’s Bedstock Festival on Giving Tuesday (November 28th). The song Meuse has written is part of her upcoming 2018 full-length debut album release on Warrior Records and the video will be accessible from Bedstock.com and Meuse’s social pages.

“I’m very grateful to be involved with Children’s Cancer Association’s MyMusicRX for Bedstock Festival 2017,” said Jessica. “I chose to perform ‘Love Her Better’ specifically for the fest and I thought it would be fun for the kids if I filmed my video on a remote tropical island, during my recent performances in the Maldives. Bedstock 2017 will be the first place for people to tune in to this new, unreleased track from my upcoming album, while supporting a great cause!”

Bedstock is a one-of-a-kind, life-changing music festival, where artists play from bed for sick kids that are stuck in theirs. It helps raise funds and awareness for MyMusicRx, an organization that delivers the healing power of music to hospitalized kids across the country. This is Year 4 of Bedstock, and it’s Bigger and Bedder than ever.

“We are honored Jessica has chosen Bedstock as the platform to debut her latest music,” said Regina Ellis, Founder and Chief Joy Officer at Children’s Cancer Association. “The compassion and generosity of the artists who participate in Bedstock is what continues to drive the success of this festival and make a difference right now in the lives of children and teens in the fight of their lives against cancer and other devastating diagnoses.”

Jessica Meuse is a American Idol Top 4 Finalist whose talents recently earned her a management deal with LA Group Management and a Warrior Records album deal. Besides working with Children’s Cancer Association, Meuse dedicates personal time to many worthwhile causes, including speaking out to raise awareness about domestic violence abuse and cyberbullying. Additionally, on Saturday, December 9th, Jessica has been asked by St. Jude Children’s Hospital to sing the National Anthem at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida, to kick off their annual Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.
