CMT ONE COUNTRY
"Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve... You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love..." -Martin Luther King Jr.

CMT ONE COUNTRY PARTNERS
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote youth development by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® raise funds for 170 children's hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most. When a donation is given, it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals have raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of the mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
