The actress and singer is the latest celebrity to join Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ efforts to raise funds and awareness for 170 member children’s hospitals across North America. The new campaign brings attention to the importance of urgently needed donations to children’s hospitals.
Lopez, an actress, singer, American Idol judge and mother of twins, is a longtime supporter of children’s hospitals through her Lopez Family Foundation. She will be appearing in print, television and radio advertisements, including commercials airing during this season’s final episodes of Fox’s American Idol.
“We are so pleased to have Jennifer on board as our official spokesperson to help with raising funds and awareness for children’s hospitals,” said Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals President and CEO John Lauck. “Children’s hospitals are charities and need donations to help provide much-needed, life-saving care and expenses not covered by government programs or insurance. As a mother and longtime supporter of local children’s hospitals, Jennifer understands how donations can make a difference in the level of care kids receive.”
Donations to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay local and are used however the hospital needs them most, typically for funding critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
In the Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are advertisements, Lopez wears a yellow Miracle Band. The design resembles the identification bands worn by children while in the hospital and represents the 62 kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals every minute. Anyone can order a free Miracle Band at MyMiracleBand.org. Supporters are encouraged to share their reasons for wearing a Miracle Band on social media with #MiracleBand.
