Children's Miracle Network Hospitals: a "please" and "thank you"


Joe Dearborn, of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals's corporate headquarters, says only half of the funds the hospitals expect to receive from credit unions for their 2012 fundraising efforts have actually been collected. He asks your credit union to please send it in by January 18, and to share the hospitals' sincerest thanks for your efforts all year!



Once again, credit unions nationwide have gone above and beyond in their support of local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. I simply cannot thank you enough.

Joe Dearborn of CMN Hospitals' national headquarters urges credit unions to send in all 2012 contributions by Jan. 18 and shares a hearty "thank you!" on behalf of the kids!


In 2012, thousands of credit unions joined us in our national campaigns (Change a Child’s Life, Miracle Jeans Day, and Holiday Icons) as well as locally hosted campaigns (such as selling goodies, donating skip-a-pay funds, creating online giving opportunities and much more!) In addition, many of you held successful fundraising events - from the traditional bowl-a-thon, golf tournament, run/walk and wine auction to the more unique big buck challenge, bass tournament, and "Bunko Bash" as well as many, many others.


In 2011, Credit Unions for Kids raised $8.6 Million dollars for kids at local CMN Hospitals nationwide. I can’t wait to share our 2012 number with you – but we don’t have a final dollar figure just yet! If you have not already done so, please send your 2012 donations to CMN Hospitals as soon as possible. In order for your donations to count towards our 2012 fundraising efforts, checks must be in hand at CMN Hospitals headquarters on or before January 18.


Please note that while your contribution will be tabulated by our national headquarters as part of the nationwide "Credit Unions for Kids" program, the money you send in will be sent directly to the hospital that serves your county, so your donation continues to aid the members and community you serve.


Simply send in your check along with this simple form (mailing instructions included) at your earliest convenience.


On behalf of the 17 million children treated at local CMN Hospitals in 2012, thank you for your support.


For the kids,

Joe Dearborn, Senior Director - Credit Unions for Kids
