For years now (Three or four?) I’ve watched the St. Jude Hospital commercial known as “Thanks and Giving” and had the same thought ever since the first say I heard the closing tagline. Go ahead and watch it, it’s only 31 seconds. I’ll wait.
The thing is, it really is a great spot. It’s well-written, the celeb thing is terrific, the heartstrings thing. Cute kids. It has everything going for it. Truly.
The thing that gets me is at the end when Marlo Thomas says, “Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not.” You know, she’s talking about kids, like mine, who aren’t healthy.
I think something Every Single Time I see it. Even though I know the spot wasn’t meant to imply that I don’t give thanks I still think in my head, “Hey! I give thanks even for my kids who aren’t (healthy).”
Other places to go… I’m so proud that Mayer-Johnson is supporting Support for Special Needs and to thank them we’re sharing information about their gift guide here and specifically about a good deal on 100 building blocks, here.
