Miracle Jeans Day

By Karin McCay| email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Don't be surprised if you go to businesses tomorrow, and all the employees are wearing jeans. That's a good thing. Look for the button they'll be wearing that says they paid 5 dollars to be a part of Miracle Jeans Day. That's a fundraiser for the Children's Miracle Network.

Each employee at these businesses has the opportunity to pay 5 dollars to wear jeans tomorrow.  Last year, the effort raised almost 10 thousand dollars for the Children's Hospital at UMC. All the money raised on Miracle Jeans Day will stay here at home to buy equipment and special services for the kids at UMC's Children's Hospital

The Development Director for Children's Miracle Network, Kathy Reasoner, said "The employees at the hospital have a lot of fun with it because we can never wear jeans, and so the button allows our patients, or peoples customers to know why they're wearing jeans. It's not just to be casual, but it's to support a good cause.
