Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is saying thank you to Credit Unions for Kids and CO-OP Financial Services in a New York-sized way by running an ad on an enormous electronic billboard in Times Square.
Times Square is Manhattan’s world-famous entertainment district (just ask anyone who lives there), attracting more than 1.5 million per day.
The “Thank you” ad (see artwork below) is running from January 26 through February on the billboard at 1500 Broadway, strategically positioned across from the also world-famous NASDAQ sign.
The CMN Hospitals ad appears one time per hour for five seconds, 20 hours per day (the billboard that serves the city that never sleeps actually goes dark for four hours daily). You can’t miss it – the ad is 29 feet by 56 feet, for a total of 1,624 square feet of eye-popping viewing space.
Credit Unions for Kids, the industry’s philanthropic organization founded in 1996, is now the third largest contributor of funds to CMN Hospitals, which helps children’s hospitals across the country to care for sick children regardless of ability to pay. CO-OP Financial Services contributes $1 million per year to CMN Hospitals annually via matching funds for Credit Unions for Kids fundraisers.
In extending this kind word of thanks from CMN Hospitals, CO-OP answers “You’re very welcome. And we thank you for all you do to provide critical treatments, equipment and charitable care for kids in our communities.”
