Welcome 2017

It’s a new year, and while many of us are setting resolutions and recovering from a celebratory weekend, there are thousands of kids in CMN Hospitals right this moment whose only resolution is to get better and recover from serious illnesses and injuries for 2017.

This week, as you think ahead for the New Year, consider thinking of these kids and starting your year with a charitable donation. Make a #CharitableResolution in addition to your personal resolution.

Perhaps your resolution is to donate a small amount to a cause you care about monthly, or to volunteer for an hour a month. Whether you donate to your local CMN Hospital, you volunteer for your local animal shelter, or you contribute to a local homeless project, make 2017 the year that you decide to give back to your community in any way that you can.

This year, my #CharitableResolution is to involve my own kids in more charity outreach, both with CMN Hospitals and beyond. Still out on winter break, my 12 year old is currently sitting in my office drawing thank you cards to be sent to our local partners who supported our CMN Hospitals Program in 2016. It’s something small, but it was her idea and she hopes it will make someone smile. I suspect that it will.

The world needs more kindness… let it start with you.

Wishing you and your families a happy and healthy 2017.
