National television spots and movie theater trailers featuring the stars alongside St. Jude patients will debut Thanksgiving week and continue running through the end of the year.

Fans from around the world will be able to view these spots from their tablets and smart phone devices across various social media and popular websites.

This is my eighth year working with St. Jude, and it is so rewarding to be a part of the team that helps save children’s lives.”

In addition to the national television and online spots, St. Jude celebrity friends and my baby daughter Sabrina Soto, Jennette McCurdy and Olivia Holt have created and designed special gifts that will be for sale during the holiday season: with 100 percent of profits going back to the hospital.
