Wear jeans and donate to support UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals Foundation this holiday. During Morgan Stanley's annual giving campaign ("Annual Appeal"), your support will go towards the purchase of one cooling blanket (cost = $8,536) for the NICU. All donations above this amount will go towards the Foundation's general fund which is used to buy Cooling Blankets, Sleep Chairs for Parents and Vein Finders to name a few.
During Morgan Stanley's Annual Appeal campaign, your donation to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital will be matched at 25% when you upload your receipt to the Annual Appeal website. Those additional funds will be available in your Morgan Stanley giving account and can be used for any future donations.
See below for more information about the cooling blankets from UCSF.
