This post is sponsored by General Mills but, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Did you know more than 10 million kids enter a Children’s Hospital across North America every year? To provide the best care for kids, Children’s Hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care.
My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital is Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. It is ranked #2 among all Honor Roll hospitals in the 17-18 U.S. News & World Report survey of best children’s hospitals – but #1 in my heart. They helped us so much with Jaxon’s Cerebral Palsy diagnosis – and so much more! With nearly 600 licensed beds, Cincinnati Children’s is the leading provider of pediatric care in the state of Ohio. Last year, it had more than 1 million patient encounters, treating patients from around the world and all 50 states.
Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, a lot of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. A little bit really does go a long way! Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
So, How Can We Help?
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner with Costco every year to give us all an opportunity to give back. Each May, General Mills selects and features Miracle Kids, putting their image on their top cereal and snack products at Costco. General Mills sends donations to local CMN Hospitals nationally! Giving back is so important to our family. I love that I can purchase a product that we already love and, in the process, give back!
While picking up Nature Valley Cups at my local Costco, I got to see Miracle Kid Allisom at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Read more about her story here. She is truly an inspiration because of her strength, but also her passion for equality. I hope you will join us in buying specially marked packages of General Mills cereals at your local Costco & continue to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
