Help Us Help Kids!

It's a big week here at WTOC, we're helping make miracles. The Childrens Miracle Network Champion's event to benefit the Backus Children's Hospital . You'll get to meet a lot of people and hear their stories, but I wanted to show you where to look to get some background on the place that makes miracles.

Start at the hospital itself. Backus is at Memorial Health, so you'll find a very clean, simple, professional web site, packed with lots of information about the hospital and why it's a special place, from the staff to the specialized units that take care of all sorts of problems, including just about everything you can imagine a sick kid might need. Most importantly, they know kids aren't little adults, and they need special care. Take a moment and check out some of the services they offer. It's pretty amazing stuff.

Backus is part of a special network of hospitals that focus on kids, completely. The Children's Miracle Network. You can learn how this group came together at the CMN web site .

You'll also find more links to hospitals, and some of the kids they help.

Once you see all that, there's even a secure site where you can donate to the cause. One thing we all like about the Children's Miracle Network, if you donate, your money is staying right here, helping your kids, your neighbor's kids, your friends kids, not going to some big bureaucracy out of town. So surf a little, watch a little this weekend, and help the kids if you can.
