Window World Inc., which bills itself as America's largest replacement window company, has launched the "$1 Million in One Year" challenge, a national fundraising campaign dedicated to raising $1 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during 2013. Overseeing the initiative is Window World Cares, the company's charitable foundation.

The company, with locations and offices in more than 200 cities around the country, plans to execute a number of activities throughout the year to reach the $1 million goal, both at the national and local level. One of the largest fundraising events is the annual Window World Family Reunion, a national gathering of Window World owners and staff, taking place this June. The continued donations of Window World customers and stores will also help reach the $1 million goal.

"One million dollars would make such a difference to the hospital and the kids who are treated there," says Tammy Whitworth, Window World chairman and CEO. "Our Window World family has been so blessed over the years, and we're privileged to be able to give back to a cause that really matters."

Window World Cares was founded in 2008 by Whitworth and her late husband, Todd. Since then, the foundation has donated more than $2.9 million to St. Jude and was named New Corporate Partner of the Year by the hospital in 2010. Window World has also been added to the St. Jude Corporate Partnerships Wall at the hospital three years in a row because of its ongoing commitment to St. Jude.
