Visit Justice Stores to Help Kids Everywhere
Tween retailer Justice has teamed with Nationwide Children’s Hospital for a spring “Give Hope” national store campaign that will benefit patients and families everywhere who seek out Nationwide Children’s expert research and care. The campaign runs through April 12, 2015 in more than 1,000 Justice retail stores across the country.

“We at Nationwide Children’s Hospital value the ongoing partnership with Justice,” said Steve Allen, MD, chief executive officer of Nationwide Children’s. “This partnership has existed for several decades and we appreciate the continued support and enthusiasm of their associates. Donations raised through Give Hope will fund research at the hospital conducted by our world-renowned scientists and physicians – research that is helping children everywhere as we discover better treatments and cures for childhood diseases.”

Make a Change for Children!
Big things come in small packages – it’s true! Every gift matters. Pennies add up to dollars, and dollars add up to pay for care and find cures. When we join together, we can make a Change for Children!

Change for Children is a program designed specifically for school groups and youth organizations. Students are challenged to collect change in a variety of ways; from simply placing collection containers in their classrooms to coordinating a fundraiser like a penny war or lemonade stand.

Participating groups will receive a supply kit including a banner, coin banks, thermometer posters, stickers, and a donation envelope. A variety of additional resources are also available upon request.

Check out our Youth Champions page to see how we can get you started. For more ideas or help planning your event, contact Ashton Slagel at 614-355-5432
