I have found that many things that look good from the outside are deceptive. Some organizations do not hold up under scrutiny. Look past the lipstick! When you talk to people who work for these organizations you hear lots of criticism and complaints. The deeper you get involved in these, the more disillusioned you become.
I have been a part of Children's Miracle Network since 1991. I have been going to the CMN Conference in DisneyWorld since 1998, so I can honestly say that I have delved pretty deep into this organization. And here's the thing...there isn't ANYTHING about this charity that I don't LOVE!!
Everyone who works on the National CMN team says the same thing, "This is my dream job!" When I talked to John Lauck (CMN CEO) last week he said, "I get to wake up every day and think 'Today I am saving children's lives'. How could ANY job be better than that?!" Good question.
The very best part of Children's Miracle Network is that ALL of the money raised locally in the Permian Basin...stays right here and helps OUR children at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa! So when we ask you to give during our "Kicks Cares For Kids" Celebration in February...we are asking you to invest your money in a charity that we have PERSONALLY and INTIMATELY been involved in for over 20 years! We are asking you to trust us.
