Why Make March Matter?
Raise awareness of children’s health care needs.
Make critical, lifesaving care available to every child.
During the month of March, local businesses and communities near you will be taking action to support children’s health. Each generous business below will give you a special way to support critical, life-saving and life-changing care for children who live near you by shopping, dining or making a donation.
You can Make March Matter™ by supporting these local businesses.
Businesses in Los Angeles County have pledged to raise $1 million for children treated at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Businesses in the Coachella Valley have pledged to raise $250,000 to support care for children treated by Children’s Hospital clinicians at the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center.

MVP's mission is to match up former Combat Vets and former professional athletes together -- after the uniform comes off -- to give them a new team to tackle the transition together. MVP shows them they are NOT alone.
Jay Glazer created MVP in 2015 to address this important challenge.
Jay has spent years working with Warriors from the ring and the gridiron, and many of these men and women have also struggled to apply their skills beyond their field of battle.
MVP was created to leverage Jay's unique role at the crossroads of all of these Warriors. By merging veterans with players, these Warriors can benefit from each other's strength, experience and abilities to unlock their full potential - and lead their families, communities and country towards a better future. Merging veterans and players also ensures these men and women know that the challenges they are facing are far more about who they are - Warriors - than what they did. In truth, that is a title that no one can ever take from you.
“Both war fighters and football players need something to fight for once the uniform comes off, and your service to country or time on the field is over. Without real purpose for the man on your right and left, it can be easy to feel lost...”
— Nate Boyer, Combat Veteran, NFL Veteran + MVP Team Member
