It’s time to #HelpKidsLiveBetter at Walmart and Sam’s Club

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to “Change Kids’ Health, Change the Future” by raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the annual #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign.

Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers, and members have raised more than $12 million for Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia, since 1991. To date, total fundraising from Walmart and Sam’s Club for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is more than $1 billion.

Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members round up or contribute $1 or more when they checkout. Associates are encouraged to get creative and fundraise in other fun ways as well!

The 2019 campaign raised more than $350,000 for CHKD!

This year’s register campaign runs June 22 through July 19. Customers and members can conveniently donate or say, “Round Up for CHKD, please,” when they check out at any Hampton Roads Walmart or Sam’s Club stores.

Pediatric healthcare is underfunded. Money raised at Walmart and Sam’s Club helps close this funding gap. All funds raised at Hampton Roads Walmart and Sam’s Club locations directly benefit the kids treated at CHKD.

Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the CMN Hospitals fundraising family in 1987 with Sam Walton himself being personally involved in the beginning of the relationship between the organizations. The #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities.

Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtag #HelpKidsLiveBetter.
