Online Boutique Donates a Portion of Profits to Children’s of Alabama
BIRMINGHAM (April 7, 2014) – Saloure, an online boutique featuring a large selection of handcrafted accessories for young girls, announced today that it will donate 10 percent of all purchases made on the website to Children’s of Alabama through the hospital’s Miracle Makers program.
According to Jennifer Nix, Saloure’s owner, the store is a “one stop diva shop” and includes “all things girly specializing in hair bows, apparel, accessories, décor and much more for the little princess in your life.”

Children’s Child Life program uses age appropriate education, preparation and supportive activities to help patients and their families feel less anxious about their hospitalization and illness. They promote normal growth and development as well as provide opportunities for children to increase their self-esteem. There are inpatient activity rooms that have the proper toys, games, books and movies for the children to use during their stay. Child Life specialists are professionally trained to be able to meet the unique needs of the children in the healthcare environment whether that is playing with a child in an activity room or at their bedside.
Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children since 1911, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Last year, families made more than 659,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s from every county in Alabama and from 45 other states and four foreign countries. With more than 2 million square feet, Children’s is the third largest pediatric medical facility in the U.S. and has been ranked among the top children’s hospital programs in the country for the past four years by US News & World Report.
