It was Laura's trip to a local children's hospital to participate in their annual art therapy workshop when she knew children's art therapy was a cause near and dear to her heart. From that day forward, she has been committed to bringing art therapy to children who need a little extra happy in their lives.

Read more on Laura's inspiration behind the Attached to a Cause program.

Although the Attached to a Cause program runs all year, we host three annual campaigns that help spread awareness and drive donations.

Art with Heart

It was Laura's trip to a local children's hospital to participate in their annual art therapy workshop when she knew children's art therapy was a cause near and dear to her heart. At that very first art workshop, Laura was inspired by a patient's artwork of a simple striped hand painted heart. This was the creative spark that led to the design of a special heart shaped Happy Everything!™ Attachment to sell and use alongside Coton Colors' signature Happy Everything!™ Collection.

Each February, Coton Colors runs the Art with Heart campaign to drive awareness and fund collection for St. Jude. These special attachments {a new design created each year} are sold in stores throughout the country and online. Half of the retail price of these attachments are donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®.

During the Art with Heart campaign, the Coton Colors team also hosts art therapy workshops at hospitals and other organizations working with children throughout the country, providing a creative outlet and healing through art therapy.

My St. Jude Family

The spring season is full of celebrations and holidays spent with family. During this time of year, Coton Colors participates in the My St. Jude Family campaign. From Easter, Memorial Day and graduation to holidays like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, memories with loved ones are made. While we celebrate the season with family, we encourage you to make a donation to St. Jude in honor of the children and families who are being treated.

September Childhood Cancer Awareness

Every September, America honors all those who have been affected by a life-threatening illness - childhood cancer. Among these are young girls and boys whose childhoods have been cut short, the loved ones who know the pain pediatric cancer causes, and the communities across our country that rally to support their friends and neighbors during difficult times.

To add our support, Coton Colors designs a limited edition Inspire Happy Mug to be offered alongside this national effort. A new design is created every year, with the goal being to inspire happy in everyone, everywhere. With every mug sold, Coton Colors proudly donates a portion of the cost to our Attached to a Cause partner hospital, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®.

That's a LOT of happy!

We Design to save Children's Lives

We've been commissioned by St. Jude for more than 15 years to design custom products to sell in their gift store to help support their mission. The items we create are often inspired by patient artwork and are always our favorite products to design. They are sold by St. Jude, with every purchase helping to end childhood cancer.

We Run to Save Lives

Each year we have the privilege of participating in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend Expo. St. Jude invites Coton Colors to host a personalization event where we personalize our custom designed St. Jude products, some to commemorate the race, for both patients and marathon racers. We personalize the St. Jude Ornaments with anything from marathon race times to patients' names and dates they became cancer-free. It's an honor to meet so many St. Jude families, hear their stories and learn about the impact St. Jude has on so many lives.

In 2015, the Coton Colors crew headed up to Memphis to participate in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon to help raise money for our Attached to a Cause partner and run for those who can't.

Why St. Jude?

  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
  • Finding cures. Saving children.®

The full amount of your donation will go directly to ALSAC to fund St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Coton Colors will make these donations several times annually on behalf of our customers and in accordance of our partnership agreement with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. ALSAC is a U.S. nonprofit charity whose purpose is to raise the funds needed to enable St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment.

How will my donation help St. Jude?

Families with children receiving treatment at St. Jude never receive a bill for anything – not for treatment, travel, housing or food. St. Jude believes all a family should worry about is helping their child live, and we at Coton Colors are proud to partner with our customers to help in this mission to save children’s lives. Your donation will go to support the research and treatment at St. Jude. 75% of St. Jude operating funds are raised by private donations – every single dollar makes a difference!

Is the monetary donation I make to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital tax deductible?

Yes. In accordance with I.R.S. guidelines, if no goods or services were given in exchange for the gift, your donation is tax deductible. If you receive a gift from Coton Colors in exchange for your donation, this will be noted on your receipt.

Will I receive a receipt for my donation to ALSAC?

Yes, Coton Colors will email you a receipt for your monetary donation. Federal tax law requires that we give a receipt to substantiate your charitable donation.
