Carnival Cruise Line Raises $3.5 Million For St. Jude

Groove for St. Jude

Carnival Cruise Line has raised $3.5 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2022 breaking its own previous record, according to a statement.

The company’s previous record was $2.8 million raised in 2018. 

“These results are proof that Carnival Cruise Line has the most giving guests and the most caring crew in the world who join together in our commitment to St. Jude’s lifesaving mission to find cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line and member of the St. Jude Professional Advisory Board.

“As the cruise line that serves more children and families than any other, we are proud to have a long-standing partnership with St. Jude as we work to reach our goal of raising $33 million for St. Jude by 2025.”

The amount raised in 2022 brings Carnival’s grand total to $26.2 million raised since the partnership began in 2010. As a partner of St. Jude, Carnival hosts events at the hospital to raise money through a variety of activities both onboard and ashore such as the Groove for St. Jude dance party and Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea where children can create St.Jude-themed bears. 

Aside from raising money, Carnival also promotes the mission of St. Jude through artwork on the Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama, Carnival Celebration and Mardi Gras.
