Help Get Behind the Half Billion at Costco this Year

Knowing that children’s hospitals are underfunded, Costco, its members and employees are
making a difference by fundraising. They are changemakers whose impact to change kids’ health isn’t just about helping those in critical situations – it’s also about the research, preventative care, health and safety education and other support services that help build healthier communities today and tomorrow.
During the month of May, you can help us reach the $500 million milestone to change kids health! When you shop online or in-warehouse at Costco, make a donation to help kids like Owen, a Dell Children’s Heart and Brain Care patient.
Owen Coulter’s journey with Dell Children’s began two weeks before Christmas 2018. Owen’s condition escalated very quickly, and he went into cardiac arrest, and he received 90 minutes of CPR. Doctors decided to put him on a heart and lung bypass machine called ECMO, which ultimately saved his life in the emergency room that day. Owen fought through a 56-day stay with the help of the Music Therapy program. Owen got to go home with his family on February 7, 2019!
The Costco fundraising campaign runs through May 31 where funds stay local to directly help
kids in our community. Since 1988, Costco employees and members have donated more than $2,267,556.64 for kids treated at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
To help kick off the campaign, some of our Costco employees joined us for a celebratory ribbon cutting at the brand-new Dell Children’s Specialty Pavilion in honor of Costco employees’ and members’ support and contributions to the HERE Campaign. Through donations collected during the annual campaign, Dell Children’s is able to provide treatments and healing that patients desperately need today so that they can fulfill their potential for tomorrow – ultimately having ripple effects that positively impact our communities and our world for years to come.
Thank you for becoming a changemaker and donating today to help reach the $500 million
milestone. When we change kids’ health, we change the future – for all of us.
