Celebrate Panda Cares Day with Panda Express on August 8 and help Duke Children’s

Duke Children’s is excited to celebrate Panda Cares Day on August 8. Why? Because Panda Express is hosting a one-day virtual fundraiser for area kids treated at Duke. When a guest places an order on the Panda Express mobile app or website using the promo code “PandaCaresDay,” Panda will donate 28 percent of online sales to help young patients in the Triangle and throughout the state.

Donations collected year round at local Panda Express locations have helped kids like Brodie.

Brodie who is an energetic five-year-old is seen at Duke for treatment of pilocytic astrocytoma, an inoperable brain tumor of the brain stem and spinal cord. Brodie has been a patient at Duke since he was diagnosed before his second birthday. He always looks forward to going to Duke, as he loves the hospital staff, and enjoys the fun programs provided for patients! Brodie makes friends with everyone he meets, and he and his family consider their Duke Children’s caregivers to be family.


Additionally, Duke Children’s is excited to recognize Panda for raising over $29,000 in 2019 and during the COVID pandemic, they donated 100 meals to our front line health care workers and more than 19,000 masks for use in our hospitals. These donations will continue to help in our community and transform how we meet the most urgent needs, save more lives and protect our collective future.

So mark your calendars for Saturday, August 8. Panda Cares Day means that every online order of your favorite Panda Express meal helps change kids’ health and change the future – for all of us.
