talking rain 480SALT LAKE CITY — Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals today announced a new partnership with TalkingRain, the maker of Sparkling ICE. The beverage company has committed $50,000 to fund needed program growth and development on behalf of the charity’s member hospitals.

Select Sparkling ICE packaging featuring Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ “Miracle Balloon” will be available at warehouse retailers throughout May.

“We appreciate TalkingRain’s commitment to kids across the nation and look forward to generating more awareness for the critical needs of children’s hospitals in every community,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

Giving back to the community has been part of TalkingRain’s DNA long before the terms ‘corporate social responsibility’ became business model mainstays. For 27 years TalkingRain has supported organizations in the Pacific Northwest like Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Seattle Brain Cancer Walk, DECA, Seafair, JDRF Beat the Bridge and Seattle Children’s Hospital, among others.

“We look forward to many more years of working hand-in-hand with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals on the local level and now through a national awareness program for community hospitals across the country,” said Nina Morrison, Vice President of Community & Customer Relations for TalkingRain.
