My Miracle Birthday

Grateful to be adding another candle to your birthday cake this year?

The gift of your birthday will give our young patients and their families something to celebrate. Click here to set up your My Miracle Birthday fundraising page and start spreading the news to your social networks! Better yet, Saco & Biddeford Savings and P&C Insurance will match every dollar that you raise!


You Dine. We Donate.

Support The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital by eating out at your favorite restaurants in the Portland area. During various months throughout the year, a different restaurant will contribute a percentage of every check to The BBCH. All you have to do is dine at that restaurant to participate! The contribution is made at no extra cost to you and will go to ensure that Maine children can continue to receive the care they need, close to home. To learn more about the You Dine. We Donate fundraiser, please click here.
