A trip to Wal-Mart doesn't usually end with a hot meal.

"We have jambalaya and fried catfish."

But that menu greeted customers outside the airline store earlier this week.  And their purchases far did more than sate their appetites.

"It's very important that we take care of the children and we give back and donate our time, monies and energy."

For the 25th consecutive year Wal-Mart is raising money for the Children's Miracle Network. Aided again by Tony Chachere's.

Donations from this one-day drive go directly to CMN through Wal-Mart.  World-wide Wal-Mart raised 50 million world wide last year... And 650 million in the last quarter century.

"You never know when you may be in a situation where you may need help... Or either someone you love may need help, but they may not say anything. So, it's best to help everybody."

You can still donate when you go to Wal-Mart.  Through June 11, each time you check out, the cash register associate will ask you if you'd like to donate to the Children's Miracle Network.
