Chinese New Year is upon us currently, and the 15-day celebration is all about things we can appreciate: Family, friends, togetherness, the excitement of a new year…and, of course, food. It’s really, really about food.
February 16th marked the start of the Year of the Dog, and Panda Express is doing its part to bring good fortune in the year to come through a partnership with CHOP and the #WOGLRadiothon.
And everyone who works so hard here to raise money for CHOP and Child Life and Family Services through the annual #WOGLRadiothon was the recipient of that good fortune, because we got to eat Panda Express for lunch!
You see, Panda Express raises money for 127 children’s hospital across the United States. In 2017, Panda Express employees and customers donated almost 15 million dollars. Just like the #WOGLRadiothon, funds raised benefit Child Life and Family Services, which is a program at CHOP that strives to create an environment for patients where the children can just be children. It allows them to lead as normal a life as possible while in the hospital for an extended period of time, and because these services are not covered by insurance, donations are vital to keep it afloat.
At the end of the day, #PandaCares, #CHOPCares, the #WOGLRadiothonCares, and we care, too. It’s impossible to be at CHOP and not be blown away by the breakthroughs and touched by the kids. So thank you sincerely, Panda Express, and thank you, CHOP…our partnership through the #WOGLRadiothon is something we all cherish!
