ABOUT CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS:
More than 10 million kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital across the United States and Canada each year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $8 billion. For more information, visit: https://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/
ABOUT WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT:
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) began in 2003 as a small, grassroots effort providing simple care and comfort items to the hospital bedsides of the first wounded service members returning home from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. As their post-service needs evolved, so have WWP programs and services. Today, through our direct programs in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care, along with our advocacy efforts, we improve the lives of millions of warriors and their families.
