Your donation is the key to the Kidzeum of Health and Science opening our doors! Your contributions to date have played a big role in getting us to where we are, and to meeting our $6.8 million goal. We are just $800,000 away from opening our doors. Your continued support will put us on track to start construction and cut the ribbon in 2016. Any level of support will move the ball forward.

A big thank you to the Central Illinois Radiological Associates, LTD. (CIRA) for sponsoring the "What's Inside" exhibit with a generous $20,000 gift! The "What's Inside" exhibit is one of six physical exam stations that encourage children to learn about their health in the Healthy Body Gallery. CIRA offers quality-focused sub-specialized health care, taking radiology to a new level of expertise. They have been offering a comprehensive array of imaging services since 1938. We thank them for their donation!
We want to take a moment to thank some for our recent donors for helping us move forward with the Kidzeum:
LRS (Levi, Ray and Shoup), Heartland Credit Union, the Enlow Family, Michael Weir, Robert and Karen Westbrook, Scott and Jessie Bergman, the Nelson Family, Dr. David and Sue Griffen, Associated Pathologists LTD, SIU School of Medicine General Surgery and the City of Springfield! We would also like to thank Ellie Thomson and Jessica Huff for all of their graphic design work.

It's exciting to see the exhibits for the Kidzeum under construction. Some exhibits are complete, while others are in progress. You can watch the development by liking us on Facebook.
Here is an easy way you can help Kidzeum, buy milk! Kidzeum has been selected for the Prairie Farms Dairy "Our Cap, Your Cause" program. Check out the cap on each half and full gallon of Prairie Farms milk. Then go to, http://www.prairiefarms.com/our-caps-your-cause.asp, select "Kidzeum" and enter the code on the cap. Five cents will be donated to Kidzeum for each cap. Every bit helps!
