Help sick kids, buy a Hopkins Miracle tie

Every year, kids being treated at Johns Hopkins Children's Center are asked to draw one of their favorite things. Their artwork is then put on a tie and sold with all proceeds benefiting the Hopkins Children's Center.

They're called Miracle ties and they're sold at JoS. A. Bank stores. You can also find them on their website.

Each tie has a special story behind it. One of the ties in this year's collection belongs to a girl named Mya. She died in May from cystic fibrosis. Her tie has a present on it. Her mom says Mya loved to play bingo when she was at Hopkins because she would always get a present after playing.

This is an annual fundraiser that started in 1995 and has raised more than $900,000 so far.
