"Mimi's Cafe represents excellent food, and our Miracle Balloon represents excellence in child-health services at our member hospitals. What a perfect combination!" said John Schneider, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals co-founder. "By hosting this campaign at their restaurants, Mimi's Cafe is exemplifying our original mission to save as many children's lives as possible, and doing so by raising funds locally."
Mr. Schneider, the actor and singer, star of "Dukes of Hazzard," "Smallville," "Nip Tuck," and "90210," co-founded Children's Miracle Network Hospitals with the Osmond family in 1983. His ideas helped create the charity that has now raised $4.2 billion for children's hospitals.
ABOUT CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 top and nonprofit 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 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.
