For years, USA Children's & Women's Hospital has been a proud member of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and this year is no different. With help from a very special superstar, CMNH is able to help spread the message of "Put Your Money Where The Miracles Are" through Jennifer Lopez.
Lopez, an actress, singer, American Idol judge and mother of twins, is a longtime supporter of children’s hospitals through her Lopez Family Foundation. She is bringing awareness to the importance of urgently needed donations to children’s hospitals. To show her support, Lopez proudly wears a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Miracle Band. The design resembles the identification bands worn by children while in the hospital and represents the 62 kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals every minute.
This summer, numerous national retailers are doing their part to raise money for the 170+ hospitals that CMNH supports. You are invited to help in the cause by donating during the month of May to any of these participating retailers.
The Walmart and Sam's Club Miracle Balloon Campaign runs through June 14. Both retailers have committed to raising funds and awareness for our hospital. Whether it be through asking for a dollar at the register or having tricycle races in their stores, these associates understand the power of giving to their local children's hospital.
Publix Miracle Balloon Campaign runs through June 12 and saves you money when you contribute. Visit your local Publix to find $1, $3 and $5 balloons that include coupons for some of your favorite brands. Other fundraising initiatives include Kickball, Dodgeball and Pie the Manager.
Check out their beautiful CMNH special edition necklaces and bracelets. Proceeds from these items will benefit our hospital.
RE/MAX of Orange Beach is a long time supporter of USA CW through art auctions, golf tournaments and slow-poker runs but this year is different. A committee of realtors held the inaugural "Children's Miracle Ball" on May 30. It was a night of live music, great food and a silent auction in Gulf Shores.
