April 30th is one of the Latino community's most meaningful holidays, the Day of the Child (Dia Del Ni??o), the day on which we celebrate our children, their wonder and the personal inspirational power they bring to the world. This year, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is celebrating children with a nationwide text-to-donate campaign to raise money for kids at local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
**From April 14th through April 30th: Donate $10 via TEXT: "KIDS" at 80088 **
The campaign which kicked off with a social media outreach effort is currently generating awareness for the text campaign which becomes operational beginning April 15th and goes through April 30th (Dia del Ni??o). The campaign involves social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) and Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on more than 100 participating Spanish and English language radio stations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Beginning April 15th over 100 Spanish language and several English language radio stations across the country and in Puerto Rico will begin to promote the Dia del Ni??o text donation campaign. Included in the campaign are several PSAs that were recorded by popular Hispanic recording artists and television actors and personalities.
Among them: Larry Hernandez, La Arrolladora Banda el Limon, actor and recording artist Jencarlos Canela, pop stars Jon Secada and many more who have lent their voices to support the campaign.
Several of the artists also provided video messages that have been posted on the Dia del Ni??o Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CMNHospitalsLatino ) and the artists' personal Facebook pages and websites. This effort continues through April 30th the actual Dia del Ni??o.
