Links kits for the February Chain of Hearts
fundraiser supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are
being shipped in December to credit unions that donated to the charity
this year while other credit unions will receive an invitation to
participate and order form for supplies.
The paper links for which the campaign is
named are sold to members at credit unions' lobby counters and drive-ups
and bear the names of members’ loved ones. The kits also include
paper heart icons, a Chain of Hearts guide, information about your local
hospital and patient stories.
Please call your local hospital
representativeif you don’t get
your kit by the end of December, or if you'd like to sign up. And don't
forget to follow your local hospital onsocial mediaas the campaign unfolds.
The Chain of Hearts has typically accounted
for the bulk of the funds that Wisconsin credit unions raise annually
for the charity as part of the nationwide Credit Unions for Kids®program. Wisconsin credit unions raised $288,229 in 2011 to
help local children served by the hospitals.
One hundred percent of every dollar donated by
members of the credit union movement goes back to the CMN Hospital which
serves your community, your members.
Credit Unions for Kids® is
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ third largest U.S.
sponsor (eclipsed only by Walmart and Costco). Credit Unions nationwide
raised more than $8.7 million in 2011, and over $100 million since
