LOS ANGELES – Aug. 27, 2019 – Lamps Plus announced today its support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® by offering lamp shades and pillows featuring patient artwork with proceeds benefiting the organization in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Lamps Plus will donate 50 percent of the retail sales of lamp shades and pillows featuring St. Jude patient artwork to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital now until Sept. 30.
As part of the partnership, 10 bold pieces of artwork created by childhood cancer survivors are available on lamp shades and decorative pillows. The artwork features whimsical, hand-painted animals, including cats, owls, birds and zebras. Colorful abstract images with hearts and a hand-lettered, multi-color design that spells out St. Jude are also available.
“As a family-owned company, Lamps Plus helps families through both life’s triumphs and challenges. Our partnership with St. Jude for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is an opportunity for Lamps Plus and our customers to support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Dennis Swanson, founder and CEO of Lamps Plus. “Customers can add beautiful and joyful artwork to their homes while also helping to improve the lives of children with cancer and other serious diseases. St. Jude is an excellent charitable organization and Lamps Plus is grateful for this partnership.”
Table lamps, swag pendants, standalone lamp shades and decorative pillows are the products from Lamps Plus available with the vibrant and colorful patient artwork. The art patterns are printed onto lamp shades and pillows using a patented giclee printing process. The pillows are 18 square inches and have a 95/5 feather-down mix. Both the lamp shades and pillows are assembled by artisans in Lamps Plus’ Los Angeles workshop.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent today.
The lighting and pillows with patient artwork are available exclusively from LampsPlus.com and in Lamps Plus stores now through Sept. 30 in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The Lamps Plus St. Jude designs can be shopped at LampsPlus.com/StJude.
