Dozens of country music’s biggest stars are joining forces with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to launch a new campaign in hopes to inspire people to make monthly donations toward St. Jude’s lifesaving mission.

The initiative features artists such as Luke Bryan, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Darius Rucker and Cole Swindell wearing a “This Shirt Saves Lives” t-shirt, which is exclusively available to “Partners In Hope” (donors who give $20 per month to the hospital’s lifesaving work). The artists involved in the campaign are sharing photos of themselves wearing “This Shirt” across their social media channels, in an effort to encourage their fans and friends to get a shirt by becoming “Partners In Hope.”

“St. Jude is an amazing organization, and whenever you see that name you trust that it’s the best of all causes,” said longtime St. Jude supporter Luke Bryan. “It’s important for me to be a part of causes that inspire people. It’s a life-changing experience to get to see St. Jude and meet the kids who are fighting for their lives.”

The “This Shirt Saves Lives” campaign is also being supported by St. Jude Country Cares radio partners, who have raised $750 million in pledges since Country Cares for St. Jude Kids was founded by Alabama’s Randy Owen in 1989.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides treatment, travel, housing, and food to families with children battling childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases at absolutely no cost. Since opening its doors in 1962, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent, and promises to never stop until no child dies from the disease.
