Biz Kid$ campaign reaches 100% goal for CMNHs
MADISON, Wis. (6/3/14)--A joint effort by the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) and Credit Unions for Kids has resulted in every Children's Miracle Network Hospital in the U.S. now having at least one boxed set of the "Biz Kid$" TV series.
 
During April, which was National Financial Literacy Month, a full-court press was put on to get the Emmy Award-winning financial education videos into all 158 hospitals. Credit unions and leagues--including their chapters and foundations--worked to meet the challenge set out by the foundation.
 
CO-OP Financial Services volunteered to underwrite half the purchase cost as well.

"The donation of the 'Biz Kid$' program DVDs has developed an even deeper credit union/hospital relationship where credit unions not only support the financial needs of the hospital, but also the financial needs of the patient families," said Gigi Hyland, NCUF executive director. Financially educating and supporting families during a health, and likely a financial, crisis exemplifies the credit union spirit.
 
"Over the last almost two decades, our credit union partners have been indirectly improving the financial lives of our patients and families by providing donations for everything from research to facilities to uncompensated care which funds treatment for those families who have no medical coverage or have exceeded their insurance policy cap," said Joe Dearborn, Credit Unions for Kids senior director.

"Bringing direct financial education to patients and families through 'Biz Kid$' will truly be a huge benefit to the millions of kids treated at CMN Hospitals each year," he added.
