MIAMI, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — International Superstar Marie Osmond — a founder of Children’s Miracle Network — says the organization has now raised more than $8B for hospitals across the United States, including here in South Florida. She was my guest Tuesday morning on South Florida’s First News on NewsRadio 610 WIOD. Listen to the complete interview, here.

“We’re different because 100% of the money goes to the hospitals to the kids, they 100% of the money donated right there in Miami stays right there and goes to your children’s hospital,” Osmond told me. “And we create miracles. I mean, I could tell you story after story. But they say that about 62 kids enter one of our children’s hospitals every minute. And so that’s a lot of kids.”

Osmond said that year after year, donors select CMN because the money stays where it’s given, and Children’s hospitals here in South Florida — and nationwide — impact families every day.

“I believe people want to give, don’t you, Andrew? I do. But when they give, they want to know that 100% of their money is going to what they’re donating to, and statistics prove that everybody will use Children’s Hospital at some time in their lives. I mean, it’s crazy, whether it’s, you know, you your kid, you use it or whatever, two grandchildren, I know that I’ve had two grandchildren’s lives saved in children’s hospitals and two of my own children. And so the statistics are huge.”
