May is for miracles at local Costco stores! Since 1988, Costco has raised more than $285.2 million for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN), including UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

But Costco didn’t do it alone. It was, in large part, thanks to the generosity of Costco shoppers, who have made donations one dollar at a time.

Although the campaign is now in week 3 of the month-long campaign, there is no time like the present to donate at Costco and support UC Davis Children’s Hospital. One hundred percent of donations stay locally to support children at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. Not only does your donation make an impact, Costco will match a percentage.

Stop in at a Costco location near you through May 31 and purchase a Miracle Balloon to help make miracles happen for children like UC Davis pediatric heart patient Adolfo Ledesma. From supporting research, education and clinical care, to funding life-saving equipment and even containers of Play-doh, donations make a difference in the lives of sick and injured children.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and health-care services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity's Miracle Balloon icon. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit's mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
