Celebrities who attend the Giving Lounge on Thursday, January 13, were given the opportunity to make a difference by filming short PSAs for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and spending time with some of the hospitals’ “Miracle” kids.

“The inspiration behind the creation of the Giving Lounge is to encourage celebrities who attend these gifting suites to give back, as well as receive,” said Todd Michael Krim, President & Founder of the Give Back Hollywood Foundation. “It is my mission to not only put celebrities and charities together, but in doing so raise awareness and funds for important causes, such as Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which helps to raise funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America.”
