Jennifer Lopez is joining Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as an official spokesperson to encourage supporters to “Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are.” The charity raises funds and awareness for 170 member children’s hospitals across North America. Jennifer is a longtime supporter of children’s hospitals through her Lopez Family Foundation. She will be appearing in print, television and radio advertisements, including commercials airing during this season’s final episodes of Fox’s American Idol.
“We are so pleased to have Jennifer on board as our official spokesperson to help with raising funds and awareness for children’s hospitals,” said Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals President and CEO John Lauck. “Children’s hospitals are charities and need donations to help provide much-needed, life-saving care and expenses not covered by government programs or insurance. As a mother and longtime supporter of local children’s hospitals, Jennifer understands how donations can make a difference in the level of care kids receive.”
In the Put Your Money Where the Miracles Are advertisements, Jennifer wears a yellow Miracle Band. The design resembles the identification bands worn by children while in the hospital and represents the 62 kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals every minute. Anyone can order a free Miracle Band at MyMiracleBand.org. Supporters are encouraged to share their reasons for wearing a Miracle Band on social media with #MiracleBand.
