WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two prominent Washingtonians are lending their support to Children's National Medical Center through two exciting online initiatives this holiday season. Sponsored by the Case Foundation, Facebook, and Parade.com, the campaigns are designed to show how simple technology can be a force for good.

-- Defenseman Mike Green of the NHL's Washington Capitals is supporting Children's National as part of America's Giving Challenge, sponsored by Parade.com. He has created a "charity badge" that others can post on their websites or blogs, or attach to their emails. Donations of $10 or more will count as a "vote" for his campaign.

-- Dan Froomkin, who writes the White House Watch column for washingtonpost.com, has developed a Facebook "cause" for Children's National. Facebook members who donate $10 or more can help Children's National qualify for additional dollars. The nonprofit with the most donations each day will receive another $1,000.
