Miracle Jeans Day is Sept. 14
SALT LAKE CITY (7/21/11)--Miracle Jeans Day, supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through Credit Unions for Kids, will be Sept. 14. Individuals or groups can participate in Miracle Jeans Day with a minimum donation of $5. Credit Unions for Kids is the brand under which America’s credit unions fundraise for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The collaborative effort, which is driven by a “people helping people” philosophy, includes individual credit unions; local chapters; state leagues/associations; two national trade organizations; business partners and several trade publications. The program was introduced nationally in 1996 and since that time the credit union movement has raised more than $80 million for affiliated children’s hospitals. Both credit union employees and members can participate in Miracle Jeans Day:
* Credit union employees donate five dollars to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital and, in exchange, they are permitted to wear jeans to work on Wednesday, Sept. 14. * Credit union members donate a dollar to display their name on a special Miracle Jeans Day paper icon in their credit union’s branch.
Credit union employees can participate as groups or individuals. Group participation requires a minimum of five people with a minimum donation of $5 each to receive a Miracle Jeans Day sticker. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a charity that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. As of 2011, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.3 billion--most of which is donated a dollar or two at a time. To order icons or merchandise, or for information on participating in Miracle Jeans Day, use the link. Links for league and credit union materials are also provided.
