Domino's customers can donate to St. Jude by ordering the St. Jude Thanks and Giving Combo – a bundle that includes a medium one-topping pizza, a one-topping Handmade Pan Pizza, a 16-piece order of Parmesan Bread Bites, a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola® and a $1 donation to St. Jude – for $19.99.

This year, Domino's is proud to be matching dollar-for-dollar all customer contributions up to a total of $250,000 – making each dollar raised from customers even more impactful.

"I am proud that Domino's has raised more than $12 million since we began participating in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign in 2005," said J. Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza president and chief executive officer. "Our goal is to raise $10 million over the next three years for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to support its breakthrough discoveries and research that lead to lifesaving cures for children and their families around the world."

"The return of Domino's Pizza as a St. Jude Thanks and Giving partner is a testament to its commitment to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude," said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "Thanks to partners like Domino's Pizza and its loyal customers, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is able to continue saving the lives of countless children around the world, all at no cost to patients and their families."

The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, created in 2004 by Marlo Thomas and her siblings Terre and Tony, children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas, celebrates the season of giving by building attention and garnering funds for St. Jude during those months of busy holiday shopping. For eight years, Domino's Pizza has partnered with St. Jude; the funds raised during this campaign impact the lives of children in communities across the world, as St. Jude openly shares research discoveries directly with doctors and scientists everywhere.

From Nov. 12, 2012Jan 1, 2013, each St. Jude Thanks and Giving Combo sold includes a donation of $1.00 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital:

Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life. Join that mission by visiting stjude.org or following us on facebook.com/stjude and twitter.com/stjude.
