Causes We Love: Milagros para Niños
At Mobomo, building things is our passion, and sometimes an opportunity to build comes through supporting a worthy charity.
Last week, we were honored to support Children’s Hospital’s charity, Milagros para Niños at their inaugural brunch. Milagros focuses uniquely on aiding Hispanic patients at Children’s Hospital, a group that accounted for approximately 55,000 patient cases in 2013, with mostly uncompensated care. Through Milagros, children whose families may not have funds to pay for their hospital bills—or worse, lack basic Metro fare to visit their children—receive services uncovered by insurance, such as translators, therapies, transportation, and other crucial resources.
Mobomo and other supporters enjoyed a Latino-inspired brunch at the Embassy of Mexico’s Mexican Cultural Institute, and were entertained by a mariachi band and celebrity emcees Cindy Pena, and 107.9 Morning Host, Pedro Biaggi.
The day was filled with countless wonderful moments, but the highlight was the announcement that Milagros had raised $20,000 through the event! To offer your support to this great cause, contact Ashley Nolan, Assistant Director of Milagros para Niños.
