Donny Osmond is asking his fans and his "Dancing with the Stars" supporters to take it one step further and lend their support to a cause close to his heart.

Donny has launched "Dancing for Miracles," an online fundraising campaign for Children's Miracle Network, an international non-profit that raises funds for children's hospitals. The fundraising campaign will last as long as Donny remains in the competition with his professional partner, Kym Johnson.

"Children's Miracle Network is an organization I have always believed in," Donny said. "I know my supporters will be willing to help a cause that reaches children in every community. I'll keep dancing, if they'll keep raising funds for the 17 million children treated each year at Children's Miracle Network hospitals."

Supporters are asked to visit Donny.com, where they can make a one-time donation, or pledge an amount for every week Donny continues to dance. All of the money raised will benefit Children's Miracle Network hospitals across the United States.

The Osmonds have been involved with the Children's Miracle Network since its inception in 1983. The charity, which began as a telethon broadcast from the Osmond Studios, has since grown into an international non-profit organization, which has raised more than $3.8 billion for children's hospitals over the past 26 years.

But donors get more than the joy of giving. There is also the possibility of winning a trip for two to Las Vegas, NV, to see Donny and Marie perform at the Flamingo Las Vegas. Complete rules and regulations are available at Donny.com. No purchase or donation is necessary to enter or win.

"Dancing with the Stars" airs Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC.
