CUAD's CU Social Good Teams With CU4Kids
BISMARCK, N.D. (4/26/13)--CU Social Good, the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas' (CUAD) new website, is linked with the Credit Unions for Kids (CU4Kids) website and features stories about the fundraising activities credit unions do for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

The collaboration is designed to bring attention to both CU Social Good and the CU4Kids organization. The CU Social Good website now has a category for CU4Kids stories. The CU4Kids website will link back to CU Social Good for its Fundraising Highlights link. 

"The support Credit Unions for Kids gives to children's hospitals is truly remarkable" said Robbie Thompson, CUAD president CEO. "Hopefully these stories will encourage even more in our industry to support this great organization."

CU Social Good was launched in January. The website has already posted more than 700 stories about credit unions charitable donations, fundraising activities, volunteer work, financial literacy efforts and scholarships. 

CU4Kids is a nonprofit collaboration of credit unions, chapters, leagues/associations and business partners nationwide engaged in fundraising activities to benefit 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Credit unions are the third-largest corporate sponsor of the hospitals. 

"As the stories on CU Social Good clearly display, credit unions are truly about 'people helping people,' and we are proud and honored to benefit from their generosity and commitment to their communities," said Joe Dearborn, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals senior director of corporate partnerships.
