Little Rock, Ark. (May 8, 2012) — For every new “Like” on the Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield Mother Hood Facebook® page, Arkansas Blue Cross will donate $1 — up to $10,000 — to Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH).

Mother Hood is an online community for moms, cared for by Arkansas Blue Cross. Arkansas Blue Cross is proud to provide this unique opportunity in honor of ACH’s 100th birthday and Mother’s Day. Besides helping ACH, you’ll find useful information for your little investments in Arkansas’ future.

“In our neighborhood, mothers with children of all ages can find and share advice and helpful tips about parenting,” said Karen Raley, vice president of Communications and Product Development for Arkansas Blue Cross.

ACH is the only pediatric medical center in Arkansas and one of the largest in the United States. ACH’s mission is committed to working with others to achieve high-quality, costeffective, fully accessible services for Arkansas’ most precious resource — our children — without regard to race, religion or inability to pay.

Founded in 1948, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, an Independent Licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, is the largest health insurer in Arkansas. Arkansas Blue Cross and its affiliates have more than 2,800 employees. If combined, the 38 independent, locally operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans collectively provide health care coverage for 100 million — nearly one in three — Americans.
