Make Miracles on October 20!

Held on October 20, International Credit Union Day, credit unions are asked  to donate $0.25 (or other designated amount) per cardholder to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on their cardholders’ behalf.

Shop for Miracles is more than a great way to raise funds for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, it’s also an easy, impactful way to celebrate the World Council of Credit Unions’ International Credit Union Day.

In addition, to encourage member engagement, every time members post on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram about their credit union using #ShopForMiracles throughout the month of October, CO-OP Financial Services will donate $1 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, up to $100,000.

This is a great way for your credit union to get your members involved and promote your credit union simultaneously. For example, if your credit union is promoting loans, you may want to encourage members to post a selfie with the item (car? house?) the credit union helped them buy, using the hashtag #ShopForMiracles.

Members also can post about why they love their credit union debit or credit cards; post a picture of something they are saving to buy; or post photos of a goal your credit union helped them achieve such as owning a car, house, or boat, or paying for college. As long as they talk about your credit union and use #ShopForMiracles, CO-OP Financial Services will count their post!

Shout out to IBEW & United Workers FCU, OnPoint Community CU, Unitus Community CU, and Spokane Law Enforcement CU for getting on board already!
