Thanks and Giving®


To help me live.

St. Jude Thanks and Giving® is a holiday campaign that allows shoppers, celebrities and national corporate partners to unite to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital fight childhood cancer.

American is proud to partner with St. Jude as part of the American Airlines Kids in Need® program. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defends childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 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 survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

AAdvantage® members play a major role in helping American support some of the world’s foremost organizations dedicated to caring for children by donating miles to American’s Miles for Kids in Need®. If you can help us by donating miles, we (and the kids) will really appreciate it.
