HSN Holiday Pinterest Contest Will Donate Funds To St. Jude Hospital

November 30, 2012

HSN has an interesting promotion going for the holidays, one that will benefit St. Jude’s Hospital.

In a press release, the home shopping network said it is giving aspiring interior decorators a chance to give back this holiday season with the “Pin to Give: Deck the Halls for St. Jude” Pinterest campaign.

Pinterest users will search for, pin, and share their favorite holiday decor ideas. For every eligible board submitted to http://www.hsn.com/pintogive, $1 will be donated by HSN Cares to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“HSN has been a trusted partner to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the past six years under the HSN Cares philanthropic program which is committed to supporting women and families in need through raising funds for global causes,” our buddy Bill Brand, HSN’s executive vice president of programming, marketing and business development said in a canned statement.

“This new campaign gives Pinterest users a chance to give back to a wonderful organization this holiday season and we are honored to continue to raise awareness and funds with this supporting campaign.”

Starting today and running through Dec. 31, pinners will be asked to follow HSN on Pinterest and submit their “Deck the Halls for St. Jude” pin board by picking eight items – at least two items from HSN’s own “Deck the Halls for St. Jude” pin board and the rest of their Holiday decor ideas from anywhere on the Web.

You have to tag boards with #HSN and #StJude. Boards must be submitted to http://www.hsn.com/pintogive by Dec. 31 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Over the past six years HSN Cares has raised more than $6 million in donations for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The company kicked off its 2012 holiday shopping season with the return of its heART HSN 2012 Designer Ornament Collection, a compilation of beautiful, limited-edition designer ornaments, personally designed by over 40 HSN partners including Iris Apfel, Queen Latifah, Kate Walsh, Tori Spelling, Deborah Lippmann, Martha Stewart, Emeril Lagasse and many others.

These ornaments are available exclusively on HSN, HSN.com and via HSN Mobile. For ornaments purchased through Jan. 31, 100 percent of the profits – no less than 30 percent of the purchase price of each ornament – will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

HSN’s Good Deed: Designer Ornaments For St. Jude

October 22, 2010

Jay King's ornament

We think HSN’s Designer Ornament event is a pretty neat idea, and all for a good cause.

The No. 2 home shopping network asked a bunch of its vendors — 73 total — to each design a Christmas tree decoration for its HSN 2010 Designer Ornament Collection. The ornaments, which HSN has been selling on-air for the past two days, range in price from $20 to $40.

So Susan Lucci, Diane Gilman, Emeril Lagasse, Jay King, Mary J. Blige, Martha Sewart, Jennifer Stallone, Twiggy and Gwen Stefani were among the HSN vendors who designed ornaments for the collection.

Twiggy's version

The sale of the ornaments is supporting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a pediatric research and treatment center devoted solely to finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic illnesses.

Gwen Stefani's ornament

In fact, 100 percent of the profits, no less than 30 percent of the purchase price of each ornament, will be donated to St. Jude.

We particularly liked Twiggy’s Union Jack version, King’s white and turquoise ornament, Stallone’s cute Santa and Emeril’s purple turnip.
