Giving Tuesday – Don’t Forget the Kids

Hurley Children’s Hospital can always count on the community’s support for the Vote For Miracles campaign. Your votes have helped us win $50,000 the past 3 years. This year the contest is NOT being held so the huge donation is not coming to Flint to help our local hurt and injured kids.

Luckily, our local credit unions are stepping up to help us raise $40,000 this holiday season as we answer the question What is Santa Doing Today?  ELGA Credit Union and Dort Federal Credit Union are both matching $5000 in donations that come in at Both Financial Plus Credit Union and Sovita Credit Union are helping with donations too so we can supply our kids with items such as crayons and underwear, VR goggles and IPads. Donations in the past have been used to buy everything from pediatric physical therapy equipment to mini projectors that help patients stay occupied when they aren’t allowed to sit up in bed.

This Giving Tuesday, we are asking people to donate at 8am so we can get a match from Facebook and grow your donations. These exciting partnerships and events are also happening:

Ashley Homestore is hosting a Giving Tuesday event with WCRZ Radio to benefit Hurley Children’s Hospital starting at 8am. The Sassack family will be at the Linden Road location to share their story.

Coffee Beanery has Miracle Mack’s artwork on cup sleeves nationwide and will donate $1 from the sales of cinnamon holiday blend coffee bags through December. Miracle will be at the Coffee Beanery on Miller Road at 9am Giving Tuesday to see her cup sleeves!

Panda Express & Coca-Cola have partnered to donate 1% of all gross Coca-Cola sales to CMN Hospitals until December 28th.

We could use the community’s support on Giving Tuesday and through this holiday season to help our kids. Visit our social media channels to see what Santa is doing today. We hope to see you at Glow for Miracles, December 17th at 6pm as we wave glow sticks and flashlights so our NICU and Pediatric patients can see they are not forgotten.
