Send A Message About Giving
The Healthier Ever After Employee Campaign
Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics are very fortunate to be the recipient of many gifts and donations. Our community recognizes our worth and the vital role we play in the health and well being of our most vulnerable citizens. Some donors give cash to be used at our discretion, while others specify which department, service or even equipment that they wish to support. Others give "gifts in kind" which are donations of goods or services free of charge. And some give the simple and valuable gift of time and advocacy. Go to any area, any department and you are likely to see some of those donors. They are here each and every day wearing a Children's Mercy Hospital ID and working by your side.
These employees recognize that the 'Healthier Ever After Employee Campaing' is an opportunity to give beyond the work that they do everyday at Children's Mercy. They have helped build our hospitals and clinics as well as The Lisa Barth Interfaith Chapel. Their donations have supported the purchase of needed equipment, research and Nursing Scholarships. Your donation can support one or more of 15 areas to choose from.
There will be numerous campaign kick-offs where you can get a piece of free pizza and a drink. While you are there you can sign up to make a one-time gift or you can make an ongoing pledge using payroll deduction. Know that the simple pleasure of giving and making a difference isn't the only thing you get. You will also be automatically entered for a chance to win a day of Paid Time Off (PTO) as well as pair of tickets to this year's Big Slick Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party on Saturday, June 23.

I will repeat what was written last year. It is not important that you gift is large or small. It is just important that you give. By supporting the 'Healthier Ever After Employee Campaign' we support our mission statement and ourselves. That sends a powerful message to others who may be considering a donation but do not work at Children's Mercy. That message is that we are employees who are eager and committed to growing and extending our helping hand beyond its current reach.
Think of the differnce you can make. Call it Karma, Giving Back or Paying It Forward. It doesn't matter. It is appreciated and needed.
