Woodbridge, VA (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
September 18, 2013 marked National Miracle Jeans Day – a day which allows groups and individuals alike to trade their work attire for jeans and help raise funds for kids at their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Belvoir Federal Credit Union’s employees hosted a week-long dress down for the cause.
Belvoir Federal employees, also known as The Belvoir Believers, created a team microsite where employees could donate money directly online. The team set a goal to raise $1,000 for the National Miracle Jeans Day. For three weeks, Belvoir Federal collected donations through the microsite which granted a donation of $1,474 to be made to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
Since 2009, Miracle Jeans Day has encouraged people to dress in jeans to help raise funds for kids treated at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their area. Since its inception, Miracle Jeans Day has raised more than $1.4 million to help fund life-saving medical needs in Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
