Beginning March 7, Stripes convenience stores in South Texas will be asking customers to purchase a $1 Miracle Balloon icon to raise funds for Driscoll Children’s Hospital, which is a part of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a children’s charity that raises funds for more than 170 pediatric hospitals.
The icons are attached with coupon books, providing customers an additional incentive to make the $1 purchase. Stripes convenience stores have also stocked their shelves with Monkey Juice, a new children’s drink sold exclusively in Stripes stores. A portion of Monkey Juice sales will raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. A buy-one-get-one free Monkey Juice coupon is included in the $1 coupon book.
Like all Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraisers, the funds raised from Stripe’s four-week campaign will help create miracles by funding medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of 17 million children treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year, including Driscoll.
Stripes has been a partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1997, raising funds for children’s hospitals through different fundraising campaigns. Stripes has raised more than $1.15 million during the last four years for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In 2010, Stripes raised $471,468.
