T.J. Maxx and Joslin Diabetes Center Are Working to Conquer Diabetes In Style

BOSTON — January 11, 2007 — Joslin Diabetes Center, global leader in diabetes research, care and education, is proud to announce its national in-store cause-marketing promotion with T.J. Maxx in January. The proceeds will benefit the High Hopes Fund, which supports Joslin's efforts to improve the lives of people with diabetes—young and old—and to prevent and cure the disease.

T.J. Maxx is the nation's largest off-price retailer. The in-store promotion will take place in the more than 800 T.J. Maxx stores across the country from Sunday, Jan. 14, through Saturday, Jan. 27. T.J. Maxx customers will be offered the opportunity to donate a dollar to the High Hopes Fund. Donors will be honored as they sign a "High Hopes Star" that will be on display in the stores. 

"T.J. Maxx and its associates are dedicated to helping Joslin achieve its vision of a world without diabetes and its complications," said D. Crawford Evans, Joslin's Vice President and Chief Development Officer. "We are grateful that T.J. Maxx has embraced the fight against a disease that affects millions of children and adults and is one of the greatest public health threats in the world."

"We are delighted to team up with the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center and help support their life-saving clinical and research programs," said Laura McDowell, T.J. Maxx spokesperson. "T.J.
