I'm fundraising for CEO Walk In My Shoes
I am joining my fellow CEOs in experiencing a day in the life of a family who stays at Ronald McDonald House Charities Orange
Why am I doing this?
Imagine that you have just received the worst news possible – your child is seriously ill and you need to relocate your family in order to receive the lifesaving treatment that your child needs.
I have a close friend, whose nephew very recently had a serious accident, and his family stayed at RMHC for many weeks. I know the value of RMHC to families who are seeking life saving medical treatment for their child.
You would drop everything right? But what does that actually mean?
The families that stay at Ronald McDonald House Charities are away from their home, their support system and everything they know. The House provides them with support to ensure they can concentrate on what is most important, their sick child and family.
These are just a few things Ronald McDonald House Charities provide to families
- A House that is open 365 days a year, to ensure families have a place to stay at no charge
- Support sick kids and their families through various programs
- Make sure families have a home cooked meal and most importantly
- Continue keeping families together during this difficult time
Kids should be living life, NOT fighting for it!
I am asking you to support me in helping Ronald McDonald House Charities Orange continue providing a warm and supportive home-away-from-home for families of children travelling to the House for treatment.
If it were your child or a loved one's child wouldn't you want to know that they had this level of support?
