Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ #VoteForMiracles campaign has surpassed 100,000 votes.
A three-way battle is being waged for the top spot, as only 570 votes separate Children’s Hospital--New Orleans, Hurley Children’s Hospital, Flint, Mich., and Mercy Children’s Hospital, Toledo, Ohio. Dozens of other hospitals remain close behind in the race to secure a place among the top five. The public can cast their vote at www.VoteForMiracles.org. Individuals can vote once a day through the conclusion of the campaign Dec. 20.
Credit unions and the general public can cast their votes to support their favorite Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospital through this campaign. At the end, the five hospitals with the most votes will be awarded a total of $100,000 on behalf of America’s credit unions, and compliments of CO-OP Financial Services.
The hospital with the most votes after the promotion ends will win $50,000. Second through fifth place will receive $20,000, $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000, respectively. The $100,000 donation on behalf of America’s credit unions is made possible thanks to the continued generosity of CU4Kids’ lead supporter CO-OP Financial Services.
“It’s been very satisfying to see the earned media and promotional benefits our credit unions have realized from this campaign.” said Douglas Kiker, CUNA chief strategic communications officer. “It’s exciting to see local media outlets and other community members promoting #VoteForMiracles and encouraging people to vote for their local hospitals while also publically thanking credit unions for their support.”
CMN Hospitals co-founder Marie Osmond, Miss America 2017 Savvy Shields and comedian Bill Engvall have also thrown their support behind the campaign by posting videos on their social media channels.
Designed to engage consumers, #VoteForMiracles hopes to drive awareness of credit unions by highlighting the credit union difference. During the voting process, voters are asked to “Choose their Credit Union.” The credit union that generates the most votes for the winning CMN Hospital will be invited to be part of the check presentation at the culmination of the event.
