2014 Annual Report
Excellence in pediatric care requires investment, and last year was once again a shining example of our community's commitment to Children's and continuing the care that has been the hallmark of over 90 years. Your outpouring of generosity in 2014 was truly awe-inspiring and record-breaking. Together, kids, families, businesses and organizations raised more than $30.7 million in support of Children's mission.
Because of you, Children's made great strides over the past year as a leading provider of pediatric health care in the Upper Midwest. From clinical innovations to serving as an ever-present voice for kids in our community, we think you'll be inspired by the many amazing ways people are giving back in order to support the futures of kids at Children's.

- When copying and pasting text from another website, a Word doc, PowerPoint, etc... select the 'paste as plain text' option from the clipboard dropdown in the tools panel. This will remove all formatting that's been applied to the text.

Links: best practices
Linking to external websites/within ChildrensMN.org
- Make sure that the linking text is descriptive so the user will know what to expect when clicking the link.
- Aim to use only keywords vs linking sentences or writing out the web address within the content. Unless there is a specific reason users need to know the exact web address, your links should be assumed by the user to bring them to the content they are expecting to see.
- Make sure that the links are related to the content and useful to the readers, if it doesn't pertain to the content, don't link it. And finally, don't overdo the links. Too many links on a page creates a bad user experience and becomes overwhelming.
- Don't be afraid to add a "related links" section below the main content if there are too many links, or links that don't specifically relate to the copy.
