Participate in Miracle Jeans Day by having your employees wear jeans on Wednesday, Sept. 11! Or encourage your employees to donate to wear jeans any time of the year that that works for you. Since its launch in 2009, Miracle Jeans Day has become a premier Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals fundraising event for the credit union industry, which raised over $400,000 last year. Register your credit union.
This year on Miracle Jeans Day, credit unions have the opportunity to go digital by creating their own fundraising pages to raise money for CMN Hospitals. Find out more information by visiting the Miracle Jeans Day site at www.cu4kids.org/miraclejeansday Fundraising pages make it possible to receive digital donations, track fundraising progress, and create embeddable “DONATE” buttons for use in emails and newsletters and on websites and social media.
“CU4Kids’ new fundraising pages for Miracle Jeans Day are part of a larger effort this year to add digital tools to help credit unions amplify fundraising for their local CMN hospitals,” says Nick Coleman, director of Strategic Partnerships at CMN Hospitals. “Digital fundraising has become a mainstay in the world of charitable giving. More and more consumers are comfortable donating on their mobile devices and even on social media channels. Credit unions can use fundraising pages to communicate to members outside the branch, create links for promotional posts on social media and in newsletters, and even add an element of friendly competition between employees, branches, or departments. Digital experiences can make events like Miracle Jeans Day even more engaging and fun.”
