The purpose of the Children´s Miracle Network is to create funds and generate public awareness programs for the benefit of children served by its associated hospitals, health centres, and foundations.
The Children´s Miracle Network (CMN) began in 1983 as a national television special to raise money for hospitals specializing in children.
Since then, Children's Miracle Network has developed into 165 member hospitals across North America, representing some of the finest children's medical facilities in the world.
The first broadcast in 1983 raised $4.7 Million, and in 1998, over $172 Million was raised across North America!
100% of local donations remain in the community to benefit the participating hospital or foundation serving the area. CMN hospitals treat 2 Million children every year, with all types of afflictions - cancer, heart and muscular diseases, birth defects, AIDS and all kinds of childhood illnesses.
A leader in charity marketing, CMN works with marketing departments of businesses to develop innovative promotions that generate business as well as a donations.
RE/MAX is the single largest contributing sponsor to the Children´s Miracle Network in all of Canada. Since becoming a National Sponsor in 1992, RE/MAX has raised in excess of $6.7 Million for Canadian children!
The center of RE/MAX´s support of the CMN is the RE/MAX-CMN MIRACLE HOME Program. It is one of the most successful cause-marketing campaigns that CMN has developed with a corporate sponsor. RE/MAX Sales Associates designate listings to be a Miracle Home, and donate a portion from the sale of each home towards the CMN member in their area.
If you see a RE/MAX lawn sign with a Miracle Home logo on it, know that the sales associate behind the sign believes in giving back to the community they do business in. When listing or purchasing a home call RE/MAX and request an associate participating in the MIRACLE HOME program!
