Take a selfie, help a child

Bill Pritchard of CO-OP Financial Services sent us word of a fundraising effort running through Aug. 31, 2019, to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, as follows: "The CO-OP ATM Network of Miracles program calls on employees or members to post photos of themselves next to a CO-OP ATM on social media using the hashtag #ATMs4CMN. For every photo posted by August 31, CO-OP will donate $10 to Credit Unions for Kids, up to a total donation of $10,000, ultimately to benefit the industry’s charity of choice, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

"This promotion is aimed at continuing the momentum of the #ShadesUpForKids promotion, which raised $10,000 each for the National Credit Union Foundation and CMN Hospitals in advance of the conference. 'The contribution from even a single posted photo does a world of good; it can enhance the impact credit unions have on over 10 million children treated at CMN Hospitals every year,' said Samantha Paxson, Chief Experience Officer for CO-OP. 'But the benefits of raising awareness about the credit union movement’s vast surcharge-free ATM Network – and its multimillion-dollar cooperative support for CMN Hospitals – are equally impactful.'

"Having members participate is easy: They simply need to visit a CO-OP ATM (found via the network’s locator), look for the red triangle CO-OP ATM logo, take a picture and post it to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn with the hashtag #ATMs4CMN.   "Donations from #ATMs4CMN will be provided to Credit Unions for Kids to enhance fundraising across the country to help create turnkey campaigns and resources, and engage employees/members more effectively. For more information on CO-OP ATM Network of Miracles, including a downloadable campaign kit with access social posts and banners, visit www.co-opfs.org/co-op-purpose/CO-OP-atm-network-of-miracles."

Thank you, Bill, for sending us this information.
