Now through June 21, 2013, Walmart stores throughout central Ohio are raising needed charitable funds for Nationwide Children’s Hospital, a member of Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. Walmart customers and Sam’s Club members can quickly add a “Miracle Balloon” donation of $1 or more during their checkout, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Nationwide Children’s.

Since 1987, Walmart stores and Sam’s Club warehouses have raised funds for 170 children’s hospitals in communities throughout the U.S. and Canada, with more than $64 million raised for all CMN Hospitals and $550,000 raised for Nationwide Children’s in 2012 alone.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. When a donation is given it stays in the community, helping local kids. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4.7 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of the mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
