Jennifer Lopez: Please Donate To The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation

Jennifer Lopez

The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has revealed their new spokesperson: international star Jennifer Lopez. The charity made the announcement on May 1, 2015 in an effort to maximize its biggest fundraising month of the year.

As the spokesperson for the Vancouver-based organization and the mother of twins, Jennifer Lopez is encouraging locals and fans to feel the light and support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

In addition to J-Lo spreading the word online and through televised ads, the foundation will host a Miracle Weekend telethon from May 30 – 31 as well as the 30th annual ChildRun on May 31.

While the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has had celebrity endorsements in the past, including the Vancouver Canucks and Michael Buble, this is the first time they’ve had an international superstar come on board to join the movement.

The foundation raised $18 million last year and hopes to raise the same amount by the end of 2015 to support urgent needs at the hospitals.
