TV anchor and journalist Jane Pauley has announced that the Children’s Health Fund will triple donations made to the organization until the end of August.
“I am proud to be associated with the Children’s Health Fund—an organization that does so much to bring quality health care to our nation’s most disadvantaged children,” said Jane, who is a Board member of the organization. "Health care is fundamental to life outcomes.
“Right now in our country, there are kids who are failing in school because their hearing loss or vision loss has gone undiagnosed… children who are suffering with asthma that could easily be controlled with medication… and children whose diseases become deadly because they are caught too late.
“It should be unthinkable in our wealthy country that a child can’t see a doctor. But it’s happening every day to tens of thousands of children.
“That’s why I’ve joined with my colleagues on the Board of Directors to triple donations made between now and August 30th.
“That means that for every dollar you give, the Board will donate two dollars—up to $50,000. A gift of $25 from you, which normally would cover the cost of getting one child a pair of glasses, becomes $75 and now helps three kids see the blackboard clearly for the first time.
“We all want our contribution to have maximum impact, and it’s not always easy to tell which organizations are effective. But I’ve seen the incredible work of the Children’s Health Fund first-hand for 20 years, and I can tell you that they are one of the best.
“I hope you’ll join me in supporting them today and in harnessing this opportunity to have your donation matched 2 to 1. Your donation could not go to a more deserving cause.”
