Support CMN with Miracle Jeans Day and Credit Unions Care
Thursday, August 11, 2016 7:00 AM

Credit Unions CareCredit unions nationwide have gone above and beyond in their support of local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN). In 2015, thousands of credit unions joined CMN's national campaigns, like Miracle Jeans Day and Shop for Miracles. Cornerstone Credit Union League, with the assistance of affiliated credit unions, successfully raised thousands for CMN via fundraising activities united under the umbrella of the Credit Unions Care.

Miracle Jeans Day is a "Credit Unions for Kids" event that raises much-needed funds to treat sick and injured kids in your community. This year, Miracle Jeans Day will be held Wednesday, Sept. 14, and we know Cornerstone-affiliated credit unions will want to get involved.

Please click here to register. It takes only 30 seconds, and your credit union will have access to all available materials and details regarding important deadlines.

How Can Your Employees Participate in Miracle Jeans Day?
Donate. Wear jeans. Help kids. It's really that simple.

  • For a $5 donation, employees get to rock their favorite denim, all while helping kids get the treatment they need at their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
  • For a $25 donation, employees will receive a free Miracle Jeans Day t-shirt to wear with their jeans. For more information about free shirts, click here.

Get your free Miracle Jeans Day icon for your credit union to show members you're involved and to get them involved as well. Order your free icons here.

October is CMN Month for Cornerstone's Credit Unions Care Campaign
In addition to September's Miracle Jeans Day, the Credit Unions Care Campaign will take the whole month of October to raise funds for CMN. Some of the things the league will be doing include selling the Credit Unions Care stuffed dogs and paper donation dog pin-ups, as we did last year.

Credit Unions Care in October also includes CU Rides motorcycle tour from participating credit unions to local CMN hospitals, delivering not only stuffed animals to sick children, but a wealth of smiles. The CU Rides will take place in each state, one in Arkansas, one in Oklahoma, and one in Texas. Cornerstone credit unions and chapters are encouraged to coordinate a CU Ride in their area to benefit their local CMN children’s hospital.

Credit union coordinators can contact Vickey Morris to order the stuffed dogs participants will deliver on their visit.
