Charitable Holiday Donations Have New Social Media Twist

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — With the holidays fast approaching, holiday giving has a new social media twist: crowdfunding gifts that give back.

D.C.’s Children’s National Medical Center is taking part in the launch of a first-ever crowdfunded hospital gift catalog as part of a national campaign for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

Through, you can buy critically-needed medical equipment and care for children at Children’s National — anything from a comfort toy to a pediatric wheelchair — and you’ll receive updates on exactly how your gift is being used to benefit local children.

You can also launch your own personalized crowdfunding campaign to buy big-ticket items for the hospital through small donations from friends and family via Fundly, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
