Nurse Mates Announces St. Jude As Recipient of #GiveHeartsForKids Campaign Proceeds


Nurse Mates Raises $12,750 during First Annual Childhood Cancer Awareness Campaign

Andover, MA (PRWEB) November 10, 2016

Nurse Mates is pleased to announce St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the recipient of the proceeds resulting from September's #GiveHeartsForKids Campaign, totaling $12,750. Nurse Mates dedicated the month of September to raise funds and awareness for Children's Cancer Research with the first annual #GiveHeartsForKids campaign, a multi-channel initiative designed to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Nurse Mates enlisted the help of their brand ambassador and social media celebrity, Courtney Thibeault, the face behind nursing humor Instagram account @NursesOfInstagram, to co-host the campaign and spread the word about their mission. Together, through Nurse Mates' customer network and Courtney's loyal followers within the nursing community, thousands were solicited to get involved and give back to Children's Cancer Research. Throughout September, Nurse Mates pledged to donate $1 for every photo posted to Instagram with the users hands in the shape of a heart, including hashtag #GiveHeartsForKids. Additionally, the brand pledged to donate $10.00 for every online footwear purchase made through, and $1 for every new email sign-up to the customer list. (

"We are thrilled with the outcome of the #GiveHeartsForKids campaign, and are equally as happy to announce St. Jude as the recipient of our donation. We will make it our mission to continue on with #GiveHeartsForKids as an annual initiative, in which we hope to grow our reach and impact each year, and continue to help provide resources for deserving children. As of November 2016, Nurse Mates will become a St. Jude Partner In Hope. We are very proud to hold this title and we look forward to showing our commitment to supporting Children's Cancer Research and St. Jude's amazing work." David Issler, President and Creative Director of Nurse Mates.
