Best Buy, after raising money through a 12-week fundraising campaign, donated more than $20 million to Memphis, Tenn.-based St. Jude Children's Hospital, according to the Sun Current.

All services for patients at St. Jude Children's are covered free of charge. According to the Sun Current, this means Best Buy's contribution could help provide treatment for 68 acute-lymphoblastic leukemia patients, 2,000 CT scans, 3,000 days in the intensive care unit or almost 13,000 days of chemotherapy.

"The continued generosity of our corporate partners, celebrity friends and the millions of holiday shoppers who support our mission year after year is a blessing for which we are very grateful," said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children's. "It is because of their efforts that we are able to continue groundbreaking research and treatment."

Best Buy has participated in the same fundraising campaign since 2013 and has contributed more than $60 million.
