#HelpKidsLiveBetter Donate Today at Walmart and Sam’s Club

Breaking: Walmart and Sam’s Club extend roundup campaign through July 31
We are pleased to announce that the 33rd Annual Walmart and Sam’s Club Help Kids Live Better fundraising campaign is being extended through July 31, 2020.
The campaign extension applies only to roundup donations at the register, on and the Walmart app, regardless of payment method.

Because donations stay in the community to support kids treated at the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, spare change donated through the Walmart and Sam’s Club roundup campaign can Change Kids’ Health, Change the Future.

Local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores are once again joining forces to “Change Kids’ Health, Change the Future” by raising money for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands during the annual #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign.

In 1987, Walmart and Sam’s Club joined the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) fundraising family with Sam Walton himself being personally involved in the beginning of the relationship between the organizations. There were 6 locations in the Midlands and the Sam’s Club at Harbison. In the first year of fundraising, locations raised $30,045.24. Today, there are 16 Walmart locations, 3 Sam’s Clubs and 5 Neighborhood Markets across the Midlands. Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers, and members have raised nearly $3.4 million for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands. To date, total fundraising from Walmart and Sam’s Club for CMN Hospitals is more than $1 billion.

Money is raised primarily through a register campaign where customers and members can conveniently contribute $1 or more when they checkout. New for this year, Walmart customers can round up their total to the next dollar amount to donate. Last year, Midlands stores and clubs raised nearly $100,000 for local kids. This year’s register campaign runs through July 19. If you’re unable to contribute while shopping, then you can support the campaign at and choose Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands.

Local Champion Braden Green will once again be featured on the register signs in Walmart and Sam’s Club locations across the Midlands. Braden is fourteen years old and has been treated for sickle cell disease since he was three months old at Children’s Hospital. Braden and his mom, Brenda typically would be visiting stores and clubs to thank associates in person. This year, they have recorded this message asking you to make a difference by donating at the register.

The #HelpKidsLiveBetter campaign supports Walmart’s goal of giving back to local communities. Customers and members can help spread the word about the campaign via social media using the hashtags #HelpKidsLiveBetter and #CMNHPHCH.
