UC Davis Children’s Hospital is taking part in the launch of the first-ever crowdfunded hospital gift catalog — GiveMiracles.org — as part of a national campaign led by the world’s largest crowdfunding-for-good platform, Fundly, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Through GiveMiracles.org, individuals wanting to give back with their holiday gifts can purchase critically-needed medical equipment and medical care for children at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

Once donors choose their gift from the GiveMiracles.org catalog, ranging from comfort toys ($30), to a pediatric wheelchair ($970), to an entire hospital wing devoted to neonatal intensive care ($12 million), they will receive updates on exactly how their gift is being utilized to benefit local children with critical medical needs.

Individuals can also quickly and easily launch their own personalized crowdfunding campaign on the GiveMiracles.org platform to collectively purchase big-ticket, high-impact medical items for the hospital through small donations from friends and family via Fundly, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

GiveMiracles.org is the first-ever online catalog of in-demand pediatric medical equipment, supplies and services that donors can purchase for one of 170 member nonprofit hospitals across North America. The catalog features individual, crowdfunded and “ultimate” gift options for budgets of all sizes — ranging from $30 to $12 million.

“Fundly is delighted to partner on Give Miracles with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on this creative and meaningful way to concretely help children with medical needs this holiday season,” said Fundly CEO Dave Boyce. “As the father of six children, I deeply appreciate the tremendous importance of this effort to harness crowdfunding’s power to engage more supporters in the cause and to personally and directly connect donors with the hospitals and children who will be benefit from their generosity.”

The world’s largest, most widely-adopted and easiest to use crowdfunding-for-good platform, Fundly has enabled its customers to collectively raise more than $300 million for their causes. The Fundly platform can be used for all types of fundraising, ranging from schools, sports teams and scout troops to larger nonprofit organizations like hospitals, universities, and international aid organizations.

Fundly’s customers include nonprofit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Teach for America and Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as volunteer groups like local PTAs and individual fundraisers ranging from Run-Walk-Ride events to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
