Jessica Biel and Make The Difference Network Bring Holiday Cheer to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles
Date:12/4/2008

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Jessica Biel and family today unveiled the details of a successful holiday party held Dec. 2 at the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. The party, made possible by Biel's Make The Difference Network, included numerous recording artists and gifts from leading retailers in an effort to bring holiday spirit to children at the hospital.

"The kids really enjoyed numerous activities as well as seeing some of the great artists we had at the hospital," said Biel. "We're excited that this also highlighted the potential of our Make The Difference Network. As a social cause network, it connects nonprofits with potential donors, and takes advantage of celebrity influence to raise awareness for organizations seeking funding as well as other needs."

The Biels welcomed the children and their families with a performance by multi-platinum recording artist Alex Band of The Calling and a dance performance by "So You Think You Can Dance" finalist Twitch. The Biels spent the day decorating Cake & Art cupcakes with the kids and designing custom shoes with the team from TOMS Shoes. Cafe Primo served up gelato, while the children crafted their own holiday cards and Santa stopped by to present gifts for all. The kids also enjoyed face painting, lighting the Menorah, playing dreidel and taking home flower and ornament arrangements from Francy Flowers.

"Companies like Costco Wholesale, which has raised millions for the hospital, and Hasbro, which provided toys for the kids, also made a huge difference in the success of the party," Biel said.

In addition, recording artist Tyler Hilton and his foundation, T.H. Books, donated new books for the CHLA library and Chaser LA gifted each child with a limited edition wild life t-shirt.

Founded in 1901, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles has been treating the most seriously ill and injured children in Los Angeles for more than a century, and it is acknowledged throughout the United States and around the world for its leadership in pediatric and adolescent health.

Jessica Biel and her family started the Make The Difference Network (MTDN), a social cause network that connects nonprofit organizations with potential donors and increases awareness for nonprofit organizations. The Mission of MTDN is to democratize giving by increasing the visibility of thousands of nonprofit organizations and empowering potential donors to search, select and fund these organizations' specific "Wishes" and then see the results of their giving.
