Mark your calendars! Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2011 is “Miracle Jeans Day,” an annual fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, a charity that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals.

Individuals, companies, organizations and groups can participate in Miracle Jeans Day for a minimum of a $5 donation, earning the right to wear jeans in lieu of traditional work uniforms.


Credit Unions, RE/MAX, Delta Air Lines and Marriott have already committed to participate in “Miracle Jeans Day,” which raised more than $500,000 for children’s hospitals in 2010. More than 150,000 employees at more than 700 company locations and organizations across North America participated in the one-day event in 2010 to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.


“Miracle Jeans Day gives companies, organizations and individuals an opportunity to come together in a casual way to support children’s hospitals just by wearing jeans to work,” said Staci Cross, regional director, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “It’s a fun and creative way to involve employees at all levels while raising funds for their local children’s hospital.”
