St. Jude Children's Research Hospital partners with nora fleming for limited-edition collectibles
Mini "bear hug" and "lots of love" benefit lifesaving mission of St. Jude
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- nora fleming and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® have announced a new collection of limited-edition St. Jude minis that benefit the hospital's lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children®.
The first mini released last fall, "bear hug," resembles the red wagon that families use at St. Jude to travel around the hospital. The second collectible mini, "lots of love", is a double turquoise heart that was inspired by 16-year-old St. Jude patient Alexia's art and available online starting today. Alexia has been a patient at St. Jude her entire life. Shortly after her birth she was diagnosed with sickle cell disease and her treatment at St. Jude has included blood transfusions.
"When my brother and I founded the company we said that it was the result of pure love," said Nora, founder of nora fleming. "All of our products are designed to bring joy to every table and event so it made sense for us to help spread some of that joy to the families at St. Jude. We could not be more excited about the response to our first collectible, 'bear hug,' and think our customers are going to be really excited about the next piece we debut in early February."
nora fleming will donate $16 to St. Jude for each mini sold in the limited-edition series. Contributions help ensure that 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.

The company carries serving pieces, home décor pieces and minis in fun and whimsical designs that are interchangeable depending on the holiday or event theme. nora fleming strives to make every celebration one to remember: one gift. every occasion.
