HELP SAVE A LIFE: SHOP FOR MIRACLES
updated 08/20/14 04:36 PM
International Credit Union Day
You don’t have to be a doctor to help ill children. Simply sign up for Shop for Miracles!

On International Credit Union Day on Oct. 16, each time your members use their check or credit card, your credit union can donate 25 cents, or another self-determined amount, to Credit Unions for Kids, one of the largest fundraising arms of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The donations will help provide much needed treatment for children who need the most care, as well as raise awareness of credit unions and their commitment to helping people.

Last year, participating California and Nevada credit unions raised $175,000 for Credit Unions for Kids on International Credit Union Day. Click here to sign up today and blow last year’s total out of the water!

Also, check out the Shop For Miracles marketing toolkit to help spread the word with your members. It includes:

  • Statement stuffers
  • Posters
  • Web banners
  • Much more!

Also coming up—Miracle Jeans Day!
Encourage your employees to donate $5 to dress casual on Sept. 10. With a $25 donation, employees will receive a free Miracle Jeans Day T-shirt.

Questions? Contact Tena Lozano, Manager of Consumer Advocacy for the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, at 909-212-6057.
