New Website, T-shirts and Free Online Tools Available to Help Credit Unions Help Local Kids
SALT LAKE CITY, UT (August 30, 2013) — On Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, credit unions across North America are invited to wear jeans in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, a charity that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals. For a $5 donation, credit union employees can “earn” the right to wear jeans and participate in Miracle Jeans Day. For a $25 donation, through Sept. 1, participants also qualify for a Miracle Jeans Day T-shirt. All donations stay local to benefit the member hospital serving that community.
New to 2013, there is a Credit Unions for Kids version of the Miracle Jeans Day T-shirt. To receive this free T-shirt with your $25 donation, contributions must be received no later than September 1 via phone (801) 214-7452 or online at MiracleJeansDay.com. From September 2 to 12, an additional $10 will be required to cover expedited fees. The absolute final day to qualify for a T-shirt is Sept. 12. To date, more than 1,000 credit unions supporters and employees have purchased these unique Miracle Jeans Day T-shirts.
In 2012, credit unions were the largest supporter of Miracle Jeans Day, with more than 600 unique credit unions participating in the event. Collectively those credit unions raised over $300,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
