Children's Hospital of Orange County is proud to announce it has become a member of Children's Miracle Network, an alliance of premier hospitals for children. Every dollar raised in Orange County through Children's Miracle Network will now be given to CHOC to fund programs, research and equipment.
Children's Miracle Network is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals across North America and Canada. Each year, the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries. These hospitals help children of all races, ages, religions, and financial backgrounds and impact the lives of more children than any other children's organization in the world.
"This partnership will greatly benefit CHOC in terms of community awareness and much-needed funds for various programs and services at the hospital. It's gratifying to know that every dollar now raised by Children's Miracle Network sponsors in Orange County will go directly to CHOC," said Renae Furlow, Business Partnership Manager at CHOC.
Children's Miracle Network sponsors raise funds in a variety of ways, including the sale of 'Miracle Balloons' for $1 each. Retailers such as Wal-Mart, Costco and RiteAid hold balloon campaigns throughout the year; and other partners such as participating credit unions sell gift cards to their members and make a donation though Children's Miracle Network to CHOC for each card sold.
Soon, residents will see 'Miracle Homes' by RE/MAX, in which participating realtors in Orange County will make a donation to CHOC for each transaction.
