2012 ANNUAL REPORT
If students can’t see the blackboard, how are they
going to solve the math problems the teacher is
writing there? If they can’t read their text book,
how are they going to do their homework?
Kids
need good
teachers,
but they
need good
doctors,
too.
If they are falling asleep at their desks because uncontrolled
asthma kept them up coughing all night, how are they going
to concentrate on the classroom discussion?
If they are hungry in class, what hope does the teacher have
to keep them engaged?
Ask any teacher or principal, especially those working in
disadvantaged communities across the U.S., and you will
hear heartbreaking stories of children struggling to succeed
in school in the face of health barriers to learning like these.
For over 25 years, Children’s Health Fund has been
a vital part of the solution.
Our mobile medical and dental clinics visit hundreds of
schools every week in the country’s most blighted urban
neighborhoods and isolated rural communities to diagnose
and manage health problems that can stand in the way
of success in the classroom. And we make sure children
get the right start during the critical years from birth to
kindergarten, when crucial brain development occurs that
supports lifelong learning.
Without this help, these kids really don’t stand a chance.
Children in poverty already face disparities in academic
opportunity and achievement. Poor health adds to the
burden they shoulder.
Through our medical services and advocacy, Children’s
Health Fund is committed to giving every child a chance
to be healthy and ready to learn.
A Note from our leadership
Learning is the work of children, from their earliest moments as newborns experiencing the world around them until they cross the finish line of graduation.
In the following pages you will meet kids of all ages who are going to school
today able to do their best because they got the health care they needed
this year, as well as young adults who are fulfilling their potential because
Children’s Health Fund ensured that they had a doctor’s care in years past.
As our 25th anniversary year came to a close, we looked back with gratitude
at this legacy of hundreds of thousands of children who have been able to
grow up healthy and ready to learn thanks to dedicated doctors, nurses and
other health care professionals who work with Children’s Health Fund. And we
CO-FOUNDER
Paul Simon
are grateful to the many generous donors who have made this work possible.
Each vulnerable child who has gotten health care through Children’s Health
Fund is an important accomplishment. But we know from our work on the
frontlines of poverty in America that an alarming number of children are walking
into their schools each day, sick, exhausted or limited by health problems.
Many of these health problems like asthma, vision impairment, hearing loss
and anemia are readily preventable, treatable, or manageable, and we must
do a better job of ensuring that all kids are healthy and ready to learn.
We have taken some important first steps. In collaboration with the Council
of School Supervisors & Administrators (CSA), the New York City principals
union in the nation’s largest school system, we surveyed 625 public school
CO-FOUNDER
Irwin Redlener
principals and assistant principals. The results were staggering. Our research
study, “Crisis in the Classroom,” reported on the many health barriers to
learning that school leaders observe and the substantial disparities in unmet
student health needs between higher- and lower-poverty schools.
We have begun a dialogue with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on
how we can work together. And at NBC’s Education Nation Summit in Fall 2013,
we shared our understanding that quality health care is part of the equation to
improve academic performance for kids in poverty.
We must all be part of the solution. In partnership with Parents Magazine,
we launched our EVERY CHILD A CHANCE campaign and we will do more in the
year ahead to bring educators and health care professionals, policymakers and
parents together to make sure that all America’s kids are healthy and ready to
learn. We look forward to working with you as we pursue this essential goal.

If a child can’t see the blackboard, that child will have a more difficult time
doing well in school. Tragically, all across America, many kids living in
poverty go to school without the glasses they need to see. On Children’s
Health Fund mobile clinics we meet these kids every day. Some children were
absent the day their classmates were vision-tested and fell through the cracks.
Others were diagnosed with vision
problems, but their parents can’t afford

the necessary glasses or treatment. Some
kids once had glasses—but lost or broke
them, like kids do—and need to wait until
insurance reimbursement permits a new
pair. That might mean a year or more in
school not seeing the blackboard.
A Chance
to See
Los Angeles has more neighborhoods marked by
concentrations of poverty than any other city in the
nation. And one in four children in Los Angeles lives in
extreme poverty. The Children’s Health Fund project
in Los Angeles works with area schools to identify
kids with vision problems. This year, they found that
approximately 30% of the elementary- and middleschool children they examined failed the vision
screening. Collaborating with a community partner,
they ensure that kids like these get the follow-up
services they need, including glasses.
In the Jordan Downs Projects, Ronald lives with
his mother and older sister who made it into college.
In seventh grade, Ronald hopes to go to college
too, but he was having trouble seeing the board in
school. His mother is the sole economic support for
the family and is underemployed. She had no money
for glasses. But now Ronald has the glasses he needs
to see the blackboard.
Hilary’s last pair of glasses broke when she fell
down. Because she has cerebral palsy, she falls quite
often. Hilary has insurance, but it provides for a new
pair of glasses only once every two years. The family
lives in a single rented room in Koreatown, and her
mother cannot afford to replace the broken glasses.
But with assistance from the project, Hilary doesn’t
have to wait till sixth grade to see again.

Isani Castro was a bright, lively child
in Head Start when her mom first
noticed that something wasn’t right
with one of Isani’s eyes. Could her
sight, and her future, be at risk?
Her mother immediately brought Isani to the Children’s Health
Fund clinic in the South Bronx to see Dr. Altagracia Tolentino,
a doctor she had known and trusted since her pregnancy.
Dr. Tolentino suspected amblyopia, commonly called “lazy eye.”
Because the health center is operated in partnership with
Montefiore Medical Center, Dr. Tolentino was able to quickly refer
Isani to a specialist. The Montefiore ophthalmologist confirmed
the diagnosis and prescribed glasses with a special prism for Isani.
The prism eventually corrected the problem and now Isani has
outstanding vision without glasses.
Today a star student in high school, Isani has big plans for the
future. “I’d like to be a lawyer someday,” she said. “I have my eye

The coughing often starts at night, waking a child’s tired body from sleep.
When morning comes, it’s a struggle to get up for school and then to stay
awake in the classroom. Some kids don’t make it out of bed. A treatable,
manageable chronic illness, asthma is epidemic, especially among children
in poverty. In extreme cases, asthma can kill. But most often when left
untreated, severe asthma debilitates kids and leaves them exhausted, aching,
fearful of the next attack. To manage asthma properly, a doctor needs to see
a child regularly, to adjust medication and identify triggers. But for too many
families without access to regular health care, a bad asthma attack means a
terrifying trip to the ER. Across America, Children’s Health Fund is making
sure that kids with asthma are not robbed of their childhood, or their future.

“Some of the kids we see have so
many health challenges,” says Dr.
Wendy Williams. “It can really overwhelm a parent.” Jasmine Johnson
was born prematurely and has some
developmental delay and hearing
problems along with very significant
asthma. She’s a handful for her mom, who has
four other children and very limited resources.
This year, the Mississippi Gulf Coast project
started to concentrate intensively on asthmatic
children at the local elementary school. Dr.
Williams saw Jasmine repeatedly, and even
though her mom had the multiple medications
her daughter needed, Jasmine continued to
wheeze. “I realized the mom was just not able
to keep the medications on schedule, so I
reached out to the school nurse, Kathy Hicks,”
said Dr. Williams.
Now, every single weekday, the school nurse
sees to it that Jasmine gets her medication.
“I saw Jasmine at the school last Monday and,
for the first time ever, when I listened, her lungs
were clear,” reported Dr. Williams. She was happy,
and so was Jasmine. The school nurse and Dr.
Williams continue to collaborate to keep Jasmine
healthy. Nurse Hicks is planning to make a home
visit to help Jasmine’s mom learn how to manage
her daughter’s asthma, and Dr. Williams will be
providing regular checkups to make sure it stays
under control. Now Jasmine has an opportunity
to focus on learning, not wheezing in school.

It could be an ordinary cavity. It could be a heavy buildup of tartar and

For David Miller, nothing could be more frightening than a trip to
the dentist—except maybe not doing anything about his painfully
yellow teeth. The ten-year-old’s teeth and gums were in such bad
condition they caused him continuing distress. Bad as that pain
was, however, it was nothing compared to how he felt when kids
at school ridiculed him over his unsightly smile.
Things were already tough enough for the boy, who had been
living in a series of foster homes for most of his childhood. Now
with the combination of mouth pain and relentless teasing by his
classmates, David no longer enjoyed going to school. His aunt, who
sometimes takes care of him, worried that if something wasn’t
done about David’s dental problems, he would end up “falling
through cracks of the foster care system.”
For David, the expansion of services by the Children’s Health
Fund project in Washington, DC into parts of nearby Maryland
came at just the right time. When his aunt showed up at the mobile
clinic with David, the very heavy tartar on the boy’s teeth and the
extremely poor condition of his gums alarmed the dental team.
When they began to go to work on his mouth, David cried,
terrified of what they would do to him. But being gentle is this
team’s specialty, so they took it very slow—explaining each step
of the exam and treatment and taking breaks whenever David got
anxious. When they realized the cold water used in cleaning was
causing his sensitive teeth to hurt, they even warmed up the water
to make him more comfortable during the procedure.
“When David returned for his three-month follow-up, he
was a totally different patient. His self-esteem was restored and
he was looking forward to school,” said Holly Graham, the lead
hygienist on the team.

Dr. Hodges immediately saw that

pointed to one of her permanent molars.
As Dr. Hodges completed his examination
he found that all four of her adult molars

Yunuen needed major treatment to

She had no insurance and there was no

Hodges told her that it was critical to save
these teeth and stop the infection in her

procedure to the bare minimum and told
her that she should just pay whatever she
could afford. Then he scheduled the earliest possible appointment to do the work.

to timely, continuous and quality
health care. That is why Children’s
Health Fund has been advocating aggressively for immigration
reform that provides access to
health care services for millions
of children on the pathway to
legal status. Providing immigrant
children with coverage will yield
dividends in the form of improved
health outcomes, overall wellbeing of children and families,
and long-term financial savings
for American taxpayers. Children,

Getting the
Lead Out
A few weeks before her third birthday, Sky’Lynn Warlick needed a
required check-up for the Head Start pre-school program. She did
not have a primary care physician, so her mother took her to our
mobile medical clinic in Detroit.
That evening, Dr. Elliott Attisha notified Sky’Lynn’s mom that her
blood lead level was more than 10 times the safe level. She needed
to be admitted to the hospital immediately for treatment. Shocked
to hear the alarming news, her mom said, “Sky’Lynn must have been
eating paint chips with lead in them. I’ve heard they taste like candy
to little kids.”
After eight days in the hospital with an IV drip in her arm, Sky’Lynn
was released. Now she and her mother are staying with relatives
while the dangerous lead paint is removed from their home. “We
didn’t even know we had all this lead in our house, but we sure found
out—the hard way,” said her mom. “Luckily for Sky’Lynn, �Dr. Elliott’
was on the scene. He and his team saved my daughter’s life.”
In Detroit’s poverty-stricken neighborhoods, old housing
has been neglected and the threat of lead paint is very real.
High lead levels can lead
to decreased bone growth,
damage to the nervous system,
developmental delays and even
seizures at extremely high levels.
In addition, high lead levels are also
associated with lower IQ scores,
reading disabilities, absenteeism,
and higher dropout rates.

Good nutrition isn’t just energy for the body, it’s fuel for the mind. Kids who
don’t eat right don’t have what it takes to stay focused in class and absorb
their lessons. In America today, more than 16 million kids struggle with
hunger. And even when low-income families can afford to go food shopping,
their communities often don’t have nearby grocery stores stocked with
affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. Sometimes parents don’t have the
education to know what a nutritious meal should include to ensure a child is
healthy and ready to learn. That’s why Children’s Health Fund has expanded
the care many of its projects provide to include health educators who work
with parents and teachers to help kids understand the nutrition they need to
do their best in school.

“We go into the classroom and get the

Soileau. “We have them stretch, do jumping

a way to give them a �brain break’ that lets
them go back to work with more focus and
better concentration.”
Waving his cape before a legion of smiling
students, Mr. Soileau also teaches good
nutrition through games like the My Plate
Relay, where teams of kids build plates of
rubber foods. The team that gets all five
food groups on its plate first wins. But everyone is a winner here, because all the kids
learn how to put together a nutritious meal.
Activities like this feed into the Mayor’s
Healthy Cities Initiative, Baton Rouge’s
effort to promote healthy eating and active
living. This includes the promotion of 5-21-0+10, a daily practice of five servings
of fruit or vegetables, two hours or less of
screen time, one hour or more of physical
activity, zero sugary drinks, and the 10
hours of sleep recommended for children
by the National Institutes of Health.
Since the Great Recession, more
families—especially those with young
children—lack enough money to buy the
food they need, while others make unwise
choices, buying sugary drinks, chips and
other “empty calories.” For teachers trying
to help young minds grow, it’s a recipe for
disaster. Luckily for folks in Baton Rouge,
they’ve got superheroes like Jeff Soileau to

Kids often come to the mobile medical clinics

opportunity to spot medical problems. Ms. Perry
discovered that Kimbrielle was anemic, and over
the months ahead, she monitored Kimbrielle’s
condition. “We rechecked it and her hemoglobin
levels were consistently low,” the nurse practitioner said.
Ms. Perry was able to help Kimbrielle focus
on a healthy diet, encouraging her to eat more
meat and vegetables. “I’m eating chicken and
green beans, which are now my favorite foods,”
she said. “And I have much more energy for
volleyball—and school!”
At the start of puberty, girls sometimes

Childhood mental and behavioral disorders, which are widespread in
America, can be disruptive to learning. The most common form of behavioral
challenge suffered by children in the 8 to 15 age group is attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder, often called ADHD. By middle school, kids with
ADHD have significantly lower academic achievement, miss more school
days, and are three times more likely to repeat a grade than children without
ADHD. Children with this kind of disorder are also nearly three times more
likely to drop out of high school. In the face of these daunting statistics,
Children’s Health Fund project teams work to identify children who need
help and ensure they get the support they need.
Finding
Focus
Emma Baisden has four daughters and all were
doing well in school except for Kayla, who could not
sit still long enough to pay attention to anything.
“I always helped my daughters with their
homework and I just couldn’t understand why
I couldn’t help Kayla with something as simple
as spelling,” recalls Ms. Baisden. “She would study
her words and be able to spell them all correctly.
Then if I asked her to spell one of the words five
minutes later, she would not know what I was
talking about.”
Kayla’s second grade teacher suggested that
perhaps Kayla needed testing and offered to
introduce her to Dr. Isabel Pino on the mobile
medical clinic that regularly visited the school.
After taking a thorough history and examining
Kayla, Dr. Pino diagnosed ADHD. “When Kayla
went on medication her condition immediately
improved. She could retain what she had studied,
her grades improved, her self-esteem improved.
It was a complete about-face,” says Ms. Baisden.
“Ms. Baisden did everything right as a mom,
she even had insurance, but the issue here in rural
West Virginia is access,” explains Dr. Pino. “On the
medical clinic, I get to know my patients and they
know that I’ll be here for them.”
Kayla will graduate this spring from
community college with certification
as a medical assistant and hopes to
return to school to become a nurse.

There was one hitch, however. The medicine

stories about their children’s first steps. “Try some water, just small sips,”
the doctor advises to rehydrate the toddler. “Está caminando bien ahora!,”
a mom says happily as her son starts walking. The chatter eases effortlessly
from English to Spanish and back.
The Well-Baby Group meets at the Center for Child Heath and Resiliency,
the South Bronx pediatric clinic that Children’s Health Fund’s New York Program
operates in partnership with Montefiore Medical Center. This innovative
program in group care is designed for post-partum mothers, families and their
babies from birth to 18 months. All the basic well-baby care that a pediatrician
would provide in an individual visit is included, but the group setting enables
mothers to form attachments with one another and allows the health care
team to spend more time with the mothers and get to know them. The nurse
takes the toddlers one by one for their immunizations, and moms are encouraged and empowered to closely monitor their child’s health status, to measure
and weigh their child and plot their gains on growth curves.
The program builds on and reinforces relationships formed during the
center’s Pregnancy Group, which offers prenatal care in small groups. The goal
is to build community as the moms share joys and concerns, nurture healthy
family development, and provide an efficient way for the medical team to
share information on a wide range of topics.
While all the members of the bustling group appear to be doing fine,
the medical team has established trusting relationships with the mothers.
They know which ones may be having trouble getting food for their children,
dealing with an abusive partner, or struggling with their own mental health,
and they are able to connect these moms to services so they can focus on
being the best parent possible.
THANK YOU!
United Health Foundation support enables us
to increase access and the quality of Children’s
Health Fund flagship programs in New York City.

disast e r
trauma
A hurricane can tear apart a community in a matter of hours. And then it’s
gone. But those caught in the path of a violent storm can feel the pain for
years to come. Children tend to be hit hardest by the lingering effects of a
disaster. With homes destroyed, families displaced and routines disrupted,
the acute shock of the emergency gives way to long-term anxiety, depression
and emotional distress that can wreak havoc on developing minds and bodies
and make concentration on school and learning impossible. That’s why,
when disaster strikes, Children’s Health Fund moves in quickly to vulnerable
communities, providing urgent care—and then stays for the long haul to help
children cope and recover.

Superstorm Sandy
in the United States.
Waiting to Exhale
As Superstorm Sandy sent seawater streaming into their house, the
Smith family of Brick, New Jersey ran for their lives, leaving behind
just about every worldly possession. With the ferocious waves
pounding the shoreline, Jim Smith, his wife, Denise, and their three
kids—Riley, Kirsten and Sean—joined a group of 21 people who
sought refuge in a small house on high ground.
When the storm subsided, the Smiths found a ruined shell where
they used to have a home. As they ripped out soaked insulation,
thick dust filled the air and mold was quick to grow. For the Smiths’
youngest son, Riley, these conditions constantly threatened to
trigger his severe, chronic asthma. Things were touch and go, but
16

New Jersey
at least the Smiths had health insurance. That
would change soon when Jim was let go from his job.
The Smiths turned to the New Jersey Children’s Health Fund
mobile medical clinic, which pulled up to the Visitation Church
Relief Center every Saturday and provided care to anyone in need.
The doctors and nurses on board treated the Smith children, who
all have asthma in varying degrees, and provided access to low-cost
lifesaving medication. Like many in Brick, the Smiths face a long
road to recovery. But as they struggle to get back on their feet, at
least they know Riley’s asthma is under control—and they can all
breathe easier for that.
2012 ANNUAL REPORT
Shelter
from the
Storm
New York
When Sandy slammed into New
York City, it shattered coastal areas
with 80-mile-per-hour winds and
record-breaking tidal surges.
In the low-lying community of Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn, some
parents carried their children as far as a mile through waist-deep
water to reach higher ground. Others watched helplessly as the
relentless storm left their homes in ruins.
Working in partnership with Columbia University’s National
Center for Disaster Preparedness, Children’s Health Fund identified
Gerritsen Beach as an area in need of sustained recovery efforts.
Drawing on its experience with disaster relief and long-term recovery
gleaned from Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina, as well as 9/11 and
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Children’s Health Fund knew that
the need for mental health care would persist long after the rubble
was cleared from the streets.
The trauma is still palpable for many children. Teachers tell of
students who feel comfortable only on the second floor of the
school, above the reach of a flood. This summer, anxious kids from
this devastated neighborhood were too afraid of the water to
enjoy a day at the beach. And after having Halloween costumes
washed away, even holidays provoke haunting memories in many
of the kids who survived Sandy’s wrath.
“We’re holding teacher and parent workshops and resiliency
training, showing adults ways they can help their children cope
with stressors. And we are providing individual therapy, targeting
children who are most vulnerable,” said psychologist Paula Madrid,
who has coordinated the mental health components of Children’s
Health Fund’s Sandy response.
Recovery is a long process for families—and especially for
children—whose capacity to cope with loss, disruption and
frightening memories has been extremely challenged. That’s
why Children’s Health Fund is still hard at work and will continue
providing critical mental health services to the families in Gerritsen
Beach through the
end of the 2014
school year.
Children’s Health Fund distributed coping kits with
therapeutic toys and organized family fun days to help
knit the mentally exhausted community back together.
They don’t have
their own beds. They
don’t have their own toys.
They are afraid of rain.
Some children are having
a difficult time focusing in
school. Our work is to help
them find some semblance
of normalcy again.

Detroit Gets a Second
Mobile Clinic
Sixth-grader Laura Whitley recently
wrote a heartfelt thank-you letter to
the whole medical team on HANK that
has provided her with health care.
Detroit project Medical Director
Dr. Elliott Attisha read the letter out
loud at the launch event and shared
Laura’s career aspirations—to be a
pediatrician and perhaps America’s
first African-American female
president—bringing the audience
to their feet in a round of applause.
THANK YOU!
The first Children’s Health Fund mobile
pediatric clinic in Detroit, operated in
partnership with the Henry Ford Health
System, is called HANK, in honor of
Henry Ford. Now HANK has been joined
by CLARA, named for Henry Ford’s wife.
This new state-of-the-art and larger
mobile clinic will enable the Detroit
project to expand the number of schools
it visits and kids it serves. The launch
event took place at Dixon Educational
Learning Academy and U.S. Senator
Debbie Stabenow participated in the
ribbon-cutting.
The new clinic was underwritten by W. K. Kellogg Foundation, and the
new clinic’s operations will be funded, in part, by the Foundation.

Kids who get treatment for asthma at Children’s Health
Fund programs in New York City and in Washington, DC
were inspired as Walter stopped by en route to show them
that asthma doesn’t have to hold you back. “I wanted
to support an amazing organization and to allow others
affected by asthma to experience a life more free of asthma
symptoms—knowing that asthma is no longer a barrier to
their dreams!” he told them.

“I am, and have been, an asthmatic for my

more than $4,000 for Children’s Health Fund
by undertaking a 500-mile bike trip. Using our

created his own fundraising web page to share
with friends and family. It makes raising money
for Children’s Health Fund easy and fun.

The work of tending to a child in need
and affording them the opportunity
to thrive is so critically important…
it is truly a privilege and an honor to
work with Children’s Health Fund, an
organization that is dedicated and
committed to making a difference in
the lives of so many children.

2012 ANNUAL REPORT
A Magical Evening
for Healthy Kids
Music legends Wynton Marsalis and Paul Simon,
joined by the internationally acclaimed Dianne
Reeves and Bobby McFerrin, thrilled a full
house of supporters when Children’s Health
Fund brought its annual spring benefit to Jazz at
Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall for the first time last June. The star-studded
celebration also featured a video message by Stephen Colbert. A memorable
moment in the evening was when Joshua Williams, a New Orleans high school
student, shared the story of his struggle and triumph over chronic asthma, and then
Wynton Marsalis presented the young man, an aspiring musician, with a trumpet
(see page 5 for Joshua’s story).

2012 ANNUAL REPORT
“We had an opportunity to see one
of the New York mobile clinic teams
helping homeless teens. It really
impacted us when we heard these
kids’ stories...living on the streets.
And when we saw how much their
doctor cared about them, and that
he was there for them, we knew right
then we had to support Children’s
Health Fund.”

Campaigns for Change
Corporations are partnering with Children’s Health Fund in new and
innovative ways to raise awareness of the health care needs of children
in poverty and increase support for the work we do across the country.
These Campaigns for Change are engaging thousands of individuals
and companies throughout America.
TYLENOLВ® enlisted TV star
and mom Alyson Hannigan
to kick off their SMILING IT
FORWARDв„ў campaign,
and Chief Medical Officer
Dr. Delaney Gracy introduced
her to some kids we serve.
Inspired by the heartwarming smile of a child, and the millions of photos
that moms proudly post online of their children every day, the TYLENOLВ®
team developed the SMILING IT FORWARDв„ў campaign. This dynamic cause
marketing promotion encourages parents to visit SmilingitForward.com to
upload a photo that makes them smile, with each “smile” shared triggering
a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund. In the first few months of launch,
the program has already attracted extensive media attention, raising public
awareness of the Children’s Health Fund national network and our efforts
to make sure kids are healthy and ready to learn.
Delta Air Lines participated
in the launch of our EVERY
CHILD A CHANCE campaign
with an ad in the September
issue of Delta Sky magazine.
As Children’s Health Fund’s Official Airline,
Delta has been a proud supporter since 2011.
They have demonstrated their commitment
to the health of at-risk kids in many ways, as
they engage their employees in volunteer days,
provide in-kind donations, and serve as the
Title Sponsor of the Yankees Home Run Club.
It’s all in an effort to make a difference in the
health of our next generation.
American Express issues
a co-branded American
Express® Children’s Health
Fund Gift Card.
Children’s Health Fund is so proud to
continue our relationship with American
Express. For each of the past two years,
American Express has donated an amount
equal to 100% of the purchase fee to
Children’s Health Fund from co-branded
Cards sold, up to a maximum allowable
donation of $250,000 in any program
year. The cards are
offered for sale to individual customers on
AmericanExpress.com.
To celebrate Black
History Month, Colgate
created a rewarding
activity for their
consumers to give back
to other kids in need.
Throughout the month of February,
Colgate offered daily wellness tips
on a dedicated campaign website
and every time someone shared a tip
through their social media, Children’s
Health Fund received a dollar.

“There is no more important investment we can make as a society than giving kids
access to basic health care so they can succeed in school and become well functioning members of our community. Seeing a Children’s Health Fund patient who came
through the program—now a doctor giving back to his community—was an absolute
revelation to me. Children’s Health Fund helps to level the playing field so children
who are less fortunate have a chance to succeed as well.”

“I’ve been involved with Children’s
Health Fund since 1991 and have
watched it expand over the years to
have an ever greater impact on the
lives of so many. Today, in the current
health care environment, Children’s
Health Fund is more relevant and
needed than ever before. Together,
we must do all we can to help it
evolve and grow so it can continue to
meet the needs of America’s poorest
and most deserving children.”
