Great Clips and Children’s Miracle Network: Small acts make a big difference
When communities come together, small acts add up to a big difference. Located in communities across the U.S. and Canada, more than 170 hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals treat the majority of kids with serious illness. Every October Great Clips salons in those communities sell Miracle Balloons to benefit their local hospital. Last year, the top salon raised over $5,000 one dollar at a time.
In 2011, nearly 1,200 Great Clips salons raised more than $488,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by selling the iconic Miracle Balloon, as well as hosting events like cut-a-thons or bake sales. Many stylists also donate their own time, visiting member hospitals to cut children's hair.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is only one of many great organizations out there, but Miracle Stories show just how unique a difference it can make in the lives of individual kids and their families. We’d love you to join us in these simple efforts that make a difference—one miracle at a time.
