IN THE SPOTLIGHT WITH MARIE OSMOND AND THE CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS✨

“Music is Medicine” 
 Marie Osmond                                                                                                               

I was asked recently why I write articles that focus on celebrities and their foundations and charities. Many have asked why I am drawn to those that are centered around children’s health, education & overall well being. For me the answer is simple. As a person who has worked in the educational field for many years; Early Childhood Education to be exact; these causes have always been especially close to my heart.
This is why I have chosen to focus on someone who has dedicated her life to children, Marie Osmond.

Marie is an amazing talent and a champion of children’s causes, all the while being a wife, mother, entertainer, business woman, entrepreneur and philanthropist. I have found she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Her foundation is The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) and Marie has made it her mission to help children everywhere!

The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals was founded in 1983. The founders were Marie Osmond along with The Osmond Family, Actor John Schneider, Joe Lake and Mick Shannon. It’s a nonprofit organization that raises funds for children’s hospitals and on going medical research that gives attention to overall community awareness in both The United States and Canada. 

The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals puts on a telethon every year, on the first weekend in June. The telethon is known as “A Celebration of Real Miracles” and it is hosted by Marie and John Schneider. The telethon is televised in several markets throughout the country. To date, they have raised billions of dollars that are distributed through out the hospitals in the Network.

Florence Carmela is “In The Spotlight”✨ with Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen

“Together, WE can make a difference…. One SOUL At A Time.”

                               JBJ Soul Foundation

What can you say about a man who not only creates music that millions of people enjoy and spent the better part of their lives swooning over.  That Musician, Songwriter, and Philanthropist Jon Bon Jovi; along with his wife of almost 30 years Dorothea; have created an amazing Foundation that helps thousands of people through out The United States. The organization is The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and it is hands down one of the best Foundations out there!

The JBJ Soul Foundation assists and supports the efforts to shed light on the issues of hunger and homelessness in our country and to produce community awareness as well. It is a non profit organization that does all this and much, much more. The Foundation has helped provide assistance and support in several states across the country for so many people who are struggling, including our veterans. Jon says that his wife Dorothea should get the credit since she is the one that has been doing most of the work to make their Foundation a success.  

Their overall mission is to help those who are in need of food & shelter. They currently have two JBJ Soul Kitchens that provide nutritional, hot meals to people in need in his home state of New Jersey. The meals are paid for by a small donation (whatever can be provided by the customer) or by volunteering in the Community Restaurant, to pay it forward in a positive, productive way. Recently, both Soul Kitchens locations in New Jersey, in partnership with The Murphy Family Foundation has provided free meals to furloughed Federal Workers who were in need of a hot meal. 

This is truly an amazing organization! If you are looking for a cause to get behind, lend your support or donate your time and money to I suggest you look towards the JBJ Soul Foundation, their partnerships and all the incredible projects they are currently working on.
