Josie has always enjoyed volunteering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. One of her first experiences was in high school; she was able to spend most of the day meeting the children at Children’s Hospital of Orange County and playing with them in the Ryan Seacrest studio. Since this primary experience, she has been treated at a CMN hospital and is forever grateful for the amazing care they provided her. Because of this, she has an even greater compassion to give back to CMN hospitals. Just this past December, she turned her family’s annual holiday party into a fundraiser for CMNH. Attendees raised a few hundred dollars in one night and can take pride in knowing that money went to help children at local hospitals feel as comfortable as possible in an unfamiliar environment.
Josie is currently in the process of starting a more long-term fundraising project. She hopes that by partnering with a local business to raise funds for CMNH, she can positively impact the lives of even more children who face unfavorable medical circumstances.
