Miracles to Wear

THE TIES HAVE IT. Seven-year-old Kaitlyn Nibblett designed "I Want to Be a Vet."

The footprints of a 21-ounce newborn. A schoolbus drawn by an 11-year-old undergoing transfusions for sickle cell disease. The American flag sketched by a 6-year-old visiting his sister at the Children's Center. These and three other designs from some of Hopkins' youngest patients grace this year's edition of Miracle Ties from Jos. A. Bank Clothiers. Each all-silk tie includes the title of the artwork and its designer's name and age. Choose your favorites-they make great gifts-at any of the haberdasher's retail locations or order online at As always, the Baltimore-based clothing firm donates 100 percent of profits from the sale of the ties to the Children's Center (more than $450,000 in the last seven years).

If you'd like to try for a Miracle Tie autographed by a national celebrity, be sure to tune into 101.9 Lite FM from Dec. 2 through Dec. 6. That's when morning show hosts Greg Carpenter and Tamara Nelson auction signed ties from Cal Ripken Jr., Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ben Carson, Ravens players and others with names in the spotlight. All proceeds benefit the Children's Center.
