Make March Matter Campaign

Children's Hospital Los Angeles (#1 children's hospital on the west coast and top 5 in the country) has launched their 6th Annual Make March Matter Campaign, a national campaign that rallies celebrities and businesses across fashion, fitness, restaurants, and more to support the life-saving care the hospital provides.

In order to maintain their lifesaving programs at CHLA and provide care for all children(regardless of health insurance), the hospital hosts this annual fundraising initiative - Make March Matter – where more than 80 brands, businesses and organizations rally together to support the hospital throughout the month of March. Over the last four years, MMM has raised more than $7 million, worked with 260 corporate partners, and hosted 139 events.

Dawn Wilcox, the V.P. of Corporate Partnerships at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Founder of Make March Matter, founded a unique fundraising campaign that doesn't simply say, "please donate"; rather, it galvanizes the LA community around children's health in a way that benefits the hospital and local businesses in our community.

This year it is all virtual/social distanced- so everyone can virtually/safely shop, workout, dine/get take out at your favorite businesses and it all supports CHLA benefitting over 600,000 children per year.

During the month of March, locals can virtually and safely shop, dine, workout, and more in Santa Monica all to support Make March Matter! Below is a list of some local participating Santa Monica brands and how they are participating, so all you need to do is stop by and shop
