The Augusta University community is welcomed to join in celebrating the annual Month of Miracles.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, departments across the university system will have the opportunity to participate in the third annual Month of Miracles (previously referred to as May is for Miracles). This month-long celebration was designed to generate awareness for the Children’s Miracle Network partnership as well as raise funds for Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

All departments who choose to participate in this campaign will begin with 50 paper Children’s Miracle Network Icon Balloons. To receive additional balloons, departments will sell balloons within their departments, as well as to friends and family, each for one dollar or more. Using these icon balloons, departments will make a creative display—so the more balloons you sell, the more elaborate you can make your display. Because of COVID-19, and our desire to keep this fun activity safe and socially distanced, judging will take place via Children’s Hospital of Georgia’s social media channels. Winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 2.

All funds for Month of Miracles will benefit Children’s Hospital of Georgia, your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

“We would love to have your department join the Augusta University family this October as we celebrate the miracles that happen at Children’s Hospital of Georgia,” said CMN philanthropy coordinator Kelsey McCoullough. “We hope you will join us in raising awareness for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.”

For more information, or to sign up to participate, please contact McCullough by email or calling 706-446-0232.
