Today through Oct. 31, Corner Store employees will ask customers to purchase $1 or $5 Miracle Balloon icons to raise funds for 32 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
The icons include a coupon for savings on goods in the stores, providing customers an extra incentive to make the $1 or $5 donation. In addition to the Miracle Balloons, customers will also have an opportunity to purchase a “Glow for Kids” glow-in-the-dark bracelet for $1, or donate their spare change. Last year, Corner Store raised a record $2.35 million to benefit local kids.
Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraisers, the funds raised from Corner Store’s month-long campaign will help fund medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of millions of kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year.
Corner Store, owned by CST Brands, has been a partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1995, raising funds for children’s hospitals through multiple campaigns totaling more than $16.9 million.
