Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is an international non-profit organization dedicated to helping children by raising funds and awareness for 170 children’s hospitals throughout North America. Each year these hospitals treat more than 17 million children afflicted with diseases, injuries and birth defects of every kind. Children’s Miracle Network Hospital's founding pledge to put children first in all it does and keep 100 percent of donations in the community where the funds were raised.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983. To date, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have raised more than $3 billion – most of which is donated one dollar at a time.
Mercy Children’s Hospital is the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for Northwest Ohio. Mercy Children’s Hospital helps provide care for children with medical needs across 14 counties and treats all children regardless of affliction or the family's ability to pay.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals would not exist without the help of our local and national sponsors. Year-round, our partners conduct hundreds of special event fundraisers, sell Miracle Balloons for $1 and hold Dance Marathons to help provide pediatric care for the children at Mercy Children’s Hospital.

#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It started in New York to celebrate and encourage charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations. In 2013, Northwest Ohio nonprofits are participating on Tuesday, December 3.

You can help "Brighten A Child's Life" this holiday season by visiting any Fifth Third Bank. Their 28th annual campaign runs November 27th through December 25th. You can donate at any of their Northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan banking centers and give a gift too big to wrap.
