Give a gift, save a life—all with one vote

For a brief, shining moment, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia was in 4th place in #VoteForMiracles—an annual campaign that gives $100,000 to children’s hospitals across the country.

Now we’ve been passed twice over.

Fifth place (about 1,200 votes away) is achievable, with your help. Getting back to fourth (now more than 3,000 votes away) is also doable, but it won’t be easy. We would need the full support of everyone who receives the weekly Jagwire email to fight for, and keep, a winning spot.

In the past week, we’ve sent out emails, tweets, posts and personal pleas for your help, and you responded with more passion and pride than we ever could have hoped for.

But we still need your help.

If you haven’t voted yet, please vote for the Children’s Hospital of Georgia in the #VoteForMiracles campaign now. Thirty seconds of your day could mean a lifetime of healthy living for some our youngest patients. Voting is free. All it takes is a name and an email address.

If you have voted, we want to thank you, but also ask that you please continue voting. Your help has gotten us to where we are, and we’re immensely grateful to you for that effort.  If you’ve done your part each day but still want to lend us a hand, please consider sharing this message with friends or loved ones. There’s no limit to the number of people who can vote, and voting is open to the entire community—not just Augusta University and Augusta University Health employees. (Students, that means you too!)

Voting ends Tuesday, Dec. 19. From the time you receive this email, that’s five potential votes. Each and every one counts.

Please help us make a difference for our smallest patients by showing the Children’s Hospital of Georgia just what Jaguar Nation can do when we put our votes—and our hearts—together.
