February is CMNH Month

February is “Credit Unions for Kids” month nationwide. Credit unions and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals(CMNH) are working together to raise money for the kids in our local area.  Members’ Advantage Credit Union will again be showing our support for CMNH by doing a variety of fundraising throughout the entire month of  February.  Please see below for a list of the fundraisers we will be doing.

Share-A-Bear (all month long)

  • Allows people to “sponsor” a Beanie Bear for $5.00 (given to a child at Marshfield Children's Hospital that has had outpatient surgery), or a 
  • Beanie Buddy for $10.00 (given to a child at Marshfield Children's Hospital that has had inpatient surgery).  You choose the bear you wish to sponsor and write a message to the child that will go along with the bear. This is a wonderful way to help ease the fear that the children are experiencing. 

Chemo Ducks (all month long)

  • Like the bears, these are available to “sponsor” as well, for $35.00.  These Chemo Ducks have either a Port or Hickman line that help CMNH’s Child Life Staff explain upcoming procedures for the young oncology patients.  In addition to the cuddly, stuffed yellow duck dressed in blue hospital scrubs, the Chemo Duck includes educational support material to help children and families understand their health situation. Every Chemo Duck comes with an educational coloring book, a DVD explaining the program and access to an abundance of information to help families organize their lives during an extremely difficult time.
