Thanks to Jeff and Jer listener Carol Yeh-Garner for telling me about the special opportunity for families to contribute to St. Jude's hospital when they buy advance tickets to the new movie The Ultimate Gift, starring "Little Miss Sunshine's" Abigail Breslin.
The Weekend Of Giving is a promotion celebrating the opening weekend of the movie The Ultimate Gift, which opens in nearly 800 theaters across the United States and Canada on March 9th, 10th and 11th. A donation of $1.00 will be made for every ticket purchased through www.FoxFilmFund.com for opening weekend screenings of The Ultimate Gift. Other partners and friends of the movie are using this donation to go toward their cause of choice. Once Upon A Family has chosen St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to benefit from donations raised through its Consultant network through these Weekend Of Giving showings, as well as events such as the Charity Celebrations. More than 150 organizations have already signed up to participate. To direct the contribution and give Carol credit, purchasers of movie tickets should go to this site and to enter their confirmation number and consultant name (Carol Yeh-Garner).
