Children's Miracle Network
Children's Miracle Network (CMN) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving and saving the lives of children by raising funds for hospitals across North America. During the past 25 years, CMN has helped 17 million children in 170 children's hospitals by raising more than $3.2 billion.
healthy kids and healthy data
One way that CMN brings hope to the lives of sick and injured children is by setting up visits between celebrities and hospitalized children. CMN approached Beezwax for help in creating a FileMaker solution to gather contact information and coordinate scheduling for the many celebrities who lend their support.
Beezwax created an elegant solution called Celebrity Tracker, which keeps track of celebrities, their agents, managers, record labels, and other related contacts. The solution also tracks details about celebrity appearance events, both upcoming and past. Administrators receive e-mail notification when remote staff have made a celebrity appearance request, rather than a single staff member having to input all of the data (the solutions uses Instant Web Publishing to make the appearance web form and request follow-up interface available to staff over the web). Celebrity Tracker even stores the celebrity's birthday and wedding anniversary, and with the push of a button, exports these dates to iCal.
