Celebrate Panda Cares Day and support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – August 8th

Children’s Miracle Network and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are excited to celebrate Panda Cares Day, tomorrow, August 8th. Support our local patients by placing an order on the Panda Express mobile app or website, and use the promo code PandaCaresDay. Panda will donate 28% of online sales to the patients treated at Children’s.

The donations that Panda Express collects year-round through Round Up and Panda Cares day have helped kids like Carston:

Carston Purdue was transferred to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at just two days old. “The diagnosis when we first got to Children’s was very grim,” says Carston’s dad, Brian. “They told us he’d had a brain hemorrhage after birth and that was causing hydrocephalus or increased fluid in the brain. He was having continuous seizures, which they were extremely worried about.”

The team in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) worked tirelessly to fine tune Carston’s medications and stabilize his brain pressure. After 70 days in the hospital, overcoming many hurdles along the way, Carston showed improvement and was finally cleared to go home. Seeing her son’s determination has given Carston’s mom, Laura, a whole new outlook. “I know now that my contribution to this world is not going to be a plaque on the wall,” adds Laura. “It’s going to be a little boy who taught me about fighting and what is really important in life.”

In 2019, Panda’s fundraising totaled  $529,786 contributing to their cumulative fundraising total of $1.6 million benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta since the partnership began in 2007.

You can help change kids’ health and change the future by visiting your local Panda Express tomorrow! Happy Panda Cares Day!
