Marriott Vacation Club Partners with Children’s Miracle Network
Tuesday, September 29, 2015
The Marriott Vacation Club has announced a partnership with Children’s Miracle Network to raise money for local children’s hospitals. Through this partnership, Marriott plans to offer guests the opportunity to purchase an upgraded room key, in the form of a RFID wristband, in exchange for a donation.
Marriott Vacation Club has worked with Children’s Miracle Network and their hospitals since 1983 and has raised millions of dollars for charity over the years. Children’s Miracle Network raises funds for 170 hospitals across North America. In addition, they promote awareness for children’s hospitals and share the stories of the children they have helped.
To participate, Marriott Vacation Club owners and guests can purchase a RFID (radio-frequency identification) Miracle Band Key through a $10 donation, or two Miracle Band Keys for $15. All proceeds from the Miracle Band donations will go directly to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, John Lauck, said,
“What a creative and innovative way to support children’s hospitals. The bands resemble the hospital identification bands worn by the more than 10 million kids treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals each year. Guests’ donations mean these hospitals can provide treatments, services and charitable care to more kids. We are grateful for the support.”
MVC members and guests can use their Miracle Band Keys time and time again by reprogramming them to use at other MVC timeshare resorts. Marriott also invites guests to share their experience using #MVCUnlockMiracles and #MiracleBand on Facebook and Twitter.
Executive VP and chief resort experience officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Cliff Delorey, shared,
“We are always looking for new, groundbreaking ways to raise additional funds for our partners at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This is another way we can continue to help sick kids get better throughout the communities where we live and work and where our Owners and guests visit.”
