Tiltify - DCG 201 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Fundraiser
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds for 170 children's hospitals that support the health of 10 million…
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (French: Réseau Enfants-Santé (RES)) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1983 by Marie Osmond, John Schneider, Mick Shannon, and Joe Lake, and is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. CMNH raises funds for children’s hospitals in the U.S. and Canada that support the health of 10 million children each year across the U.S. and Canada. Donations go to local hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that focus on kids’ emotional health during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services. To date, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than US $7 billion, which is distributed directly to a network of 158 hospitals.
Children’s Specialized Hospital, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, is the nation’s leading provider of inpatient and outpatient care for children from birth to 21 years of age facing special health challenges — from chronic illnesses and complex physical disabilities like brain and spinal cord injuries, to a full scope of developmental, behavioral, and mental health outcomes. At 14 different New Jersey locations, our pediatric specialists partner with families to make our many innovative therapies and medical treatments more personalized and effective so each child can reach their full potential.
Since 2003, Child’s Play is a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 220 facilities worldwide, including hospitals and domestic abuse shelters. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, they set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, they’ve purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
