Yankees Hit a Home Run with CHF!


by Caitlin McFeely, Communications Associate, Children's Health Fund

I’m a huge Yankees fan – in my family, you are born one.  Given the extent of my loyalty, you can imagine how excited I was when I started working at CHF and learned about CHF’s Yankees Home Run Club.  The club was started by Yankee legend Don Mattingly (Donnie Baseball!) in 1988 to raise money and awareness for CHF’s programs.  Over the years, thanks to the generous support of loyal Yankee/CHF fans, the Club has grown to over 60 members and has raised more than a million dollars! 

CHF is Connecting Kids to Care with Clorox and Celebrity Mom Julianne Moore

by Karen Redlener, Executive Director, Children's Health Fund

Two weeks ago, on April 19, I spent the day with actress and mother of two, Julianne Moore, who helped launch Connect Kids to Care (www.facebook.com/clorox), a program we developed in partnership with The Clorox Company.  

The Connect Kids to Care campaign uses Facebook to rally people across the country to help CHF connect kids to ongoing health care with the click of a mouse...so you can help!  Visit Clorox’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/clorox) to learn how you can Connect Kids to Care, watch videos of CHF doctors in action, and see photos from our event with Julianne Moore.  Most importantly, make sure you “like” Clorox, because for each new fan, Clorox is donating $1.00 to CHF, up to $100,000 (from April 2010 to January 2012).
