Wear Jeans. Help Kids.

On Sept. 12, hundreds of credit unions will raise money for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by celebrating Miracle Jeans Day. The concept is simple: employees donate $5 to trade in their traditional work attire and wear jeans instead.

On Sept. 12, hundreds of credit unions will raise money for local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals by celebrating Miracle Jeans Day. The concept is simple: employees donate $5 to trade in their traditional work attire and wear jeans instead.

Thanks to the feedback from past participants, CMN Hospitals has updated the registration process, making it even easier to get started. Credit union professionals no longer need to make their donation when registering to participate. In addition, there are a variety of new materials to help credit unions engage employees, further fundraising efforts and motivate members. Visit www.cu4kids.org/miraclejeansday to register.

Also new for 2012 are stickers and paper icons, downloadable upon registration, making them both free and available immediately. The preprinted icons used in the past are still available as well by contacting a local hospital representative.

Making Miracles Happen

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat millions of children across North America regardless of their condition or ability to pay. Here is just one story representing the millions of kids treated at member hospitals.

Meet Haven:

Within hours of her birth, Haven was diagnosed with pulmonary stenosis, a congenital heart defect. In simple terms, the artery connecting Haven's heart to her lungs was almost completely closed, and Haven underwent two heart procedures in her first 11 days of life.

Today Haven is making progress overcoming speech and motor skill delays with the help of ongoing therapy. Most importantly, she is a happy little girl with a heart that works just as it should. Haven was treated at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

Sign up for Miracle Jeans Day, and support kids like Haven.
