Duck Duck Books Joins Gold House and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital This Lunar New Year to Help End Childhood Cancer
Many of us know someone (or several people) who have been directly or indirectly impacted by cancer. Some even have experienced the unfortunate circumstances of childhood/pediatric cancer. Did you know that pediatric cancer is a trillion-dollar, multi-year problem and that requires millions of supporters coming together to solve on a regular basis?
That’s why we are proud to announce that we are one of 11 Asian and Pacific Islander (API)-owned brands to come together this Lunar New Year to partner with Gold House and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help end childhood cancer.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital based in Memphis, Tennessee is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Through April 30, we will be donating 10% of our online sales towards St. Jude to help end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Additionally, shoppers have the option of contributing their own donation with each purchase. We definitely encourage you to contribute with us if you can!
This is our way to maintain our commitment to give back to our BIPOC, multicultural, and traditionally underserved communities in everything we do and while doing so, play a part in St. Jude’s lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.

From all of us at Duck Duck Books, we wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Tiger! 新年快樂! 새해 복 많이 받으세요! Chúc mừng năm mới!
UPDATE (July 10, 2022): We’re happy to share some happy updates about our community partner from the first quarter. With the conclusion of our successful Kickstarter project to make ‘I Love You More’ a reality, we were able to fulfill our commitment to continue to support like-minded and difference-making community partners. With your support, we were able to donate over $500 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
Thank you again to Nancy Wong of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for facilitating this partnership and we look forward to many more opportunities to help fight to end childhood cancer!
