Become a Junior Champion

Inspiring the next generation

Whether starting a toy drive or selling lemonade on the corner, kids and families have been rallying together to help other kids since the hospital’s earliest days.

Every gift to Children’s Mercy surrounds families with comfort, compassion and care. Your gift delivers love to kids in the hospital going through treatments, medical procedures and long hospital stays. And, it reaches beyond the walls of Children’s Mercy to make our community a safer, healthier and happier place for kids.

How it works

When your child donates to the hospital, they have the opportunity to participate in the Junior Champions charm program. This program recognizes their generosity and provides positive reinforcement for their act of kindness. They will also receive a Children’s Mercy Junior Champions keychain with their first donation so they can collect and display their charms and show them to friends and family.
