Share a Video to Raise Money — and Hope — for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

by Employee ‎12-06-2011 04:31 PM - edited ‎12-06-2011 04:32 PM

choa2_133x175.jpgOur guest blogger today is Michelle Robinson, South Area Vice President of Government Affairs.


To highlight the great work going on at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, we’ve teamed up for a heartwarming fundraiser this holiday season. For each viewing of their “Share the Hope” video, the Verizon Foundation will donate a dollar, up to $25,000. The video was shot with one camera, in one hospital — Children's at Scottish Rite — in one day.


After seeing the strength and struggles of Baby Aiden and the other children as they go through their day at Children’s, your heart will simply melt.


Share the video with your friends and family. And after viewing it, send a message to the children who will be spending the holidays at Children’s. The goal it is reach 1,280 messages — one for each patient — by December 15.
