The Children's Hospital Campaign

Nov. 14, 2011 - Jan. 6, 2012

Every day Children's Hospital saves children's lives. And for more than 50 years, readers of The Washington Post have been playing a vital role in caring for some of the area's most vulnerable children.

Washington Post columnist John Kelly uses his daily column as a platform to raise money for Children's National Medical Center, one of the nation's leading pediatric hospitals.

All of the money that is raised goes to pay the medical bills of poor children. No patient from the Washington area is ever turned away from Children's. That's why it's so important that money be raised to defray the costs of this vital "uncompensated care."

You can make a tax-deductible contribution online anytime between now and Jan. 6. Thank you for your support.
