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 North America, 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 $9,500—one Miracle Balloon at a time.
During the month of October, visit a participating Great Clips salon to purchase a Miracle Balloon. As a token of thanks, you'll receive a coupon for $2 off your next haircut at Great Clips. All of the funds raise go directly to the salon's local Children's Miracle Network Hospital to provide life-saving treatment, medical supplies, research, and needed charitable care. Read the press release for this year's Miracle Balloon campaign.
In 2014, more than 1,400 Great Clips salons across the United States raised more than $845,000 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 Great Clips 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.
