The kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are some of the bravest, coolest kids anywhere. And Carnival guests, crew and travel partners: give yourselves a hand, because you’ve shown them some incredible support over the last few years.

Through all of our shared efforts, we’ve now raised more than $8 million to help fight childhood cancer. And not to brag, but we’ve been on an absolute tear lately, hitting our last goal a full two years ahead of schedule.Hand-in-hand, Carnival and our partners have passed milestone after milestone, setting our sights on ever-larger goals. Now we’re ready to meet our most ambitious one so far: raise another $10 million in the next five years… for a total of $18 million.

We’re ready.

Given our focus on big numbers, we haven’t lost sight of the little things — why this truly matters. We never forget our other cause: putting fun at the center of everything we do. We’re so devoted to this — and bringing fun to everyone, old or young — that we’re the Official Celebration Partner for St. Jude. We’ll take any chance we can get to help others celebrate — that’s why we’re supporting birthdays at St. Jude. When a St. Jude patient celebrates their special day, Carnival brings the cake! What’s more, Carnival supports the annual St. Jude Teen Formal, where legendary spin master DJ IRIE gets the party moving… and keeps everyone grooving.
