The best kind of charity is one where the giver does not feel strained but enjoys their donation. For most people, it can feel like a burden to give. This is especially true when they themselves are in need. Yet we know that others need our help so everyone tries to give what they can.
As we know, little things can have a big effect. A dollar at a time, people are helping kids all over North America and Canada simply by enjoying their favorite treat can mean a miracle. This is the kind of program that the Children’s Miracle Network utilizes.
Last August 10, Dairy Queen held their Miracle Day Treat. Every customer who purchased a blizzard was helping to save the life of a child. All the proceeds from the blizzards goes to a hospital that is part of their network.
Dairy Queen has been working with the Children’s Miracle Network since 1984. They are not alone. Wal-Mart, Marriott, The Walt Disney World Corporation, Ace Hardware and the Coca Cola North America are just a few of the companies that sponsor this foundation. Their current spokesperson is LeAnn Rimes.
If you want to assist the 17 million children that the Children’s Miracle Network supports you can do so by supporting one of the various programs of the sponsors of the organization, such as Dairy Queen. Of course, you can also send in a donation in cash via credit card. It can be a one time gift or a monthly donation. Any amount you give will be appreciated.
