Since 1988, the Purchase a Miracle campaign has brought together the grocery industry and consumers to raise money for Seattle Children's.

Every May 1 to June 15, volunteers place shelf tags beneath products of participating sponsors in hundreds of retail stores across Washington state. When you choose products with the Purchase a Miracle shelf tag, you are helping support cancer research at Seattle Children's.
