Crowdfunding fulfills hospital wish list
Submitted By Jennifer Kern
Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland is taking part in the launch of the first-ever crowdfunded hospital gift catalog - www.GiveMiracles.org - as part of a national campaign led by the world's largest crowdfunding-for-good platform, Fundly, and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Through www.GiveMiracles.org, individuals wanting to give back with their holiday gifts can purchase critically-needed medical equipment and medical care for children at Children's Hospital & Research Center Oakland. Once donors choose their gift from the online catalog - ranging from comfort toys ($30), to a pediatric wheelchair ($970), to an entire hospital wing devoted to neonatal intensive care ($12 million) - they will receive updates on exactly how their gift is being utilized to benefit local children with critical medical needs.
www.GiveMiracles.org is the first-ever online catalog of in-demand pediatric medical equipment, supplies and services that donors can purchase for one of 170 member nonprofit hospitals across North America.
