I'm fundraising for CEO Walk In My ShoesTuesday 30th Nov
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?
"I have a 15-year-old daughter whom we have been on a health journey with for over four years, and I want to be able to help and empower people to know what services are available for them.
Did you know that at RMHC Orange 20% of the families and 50% of the room nights are for families, with a child or adolescent receiving what is often life-saving treatment in the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Unit?
This is why I am involved in CEO Walk in My Shoes, supporting RMHC Orange and families going through their difficult journeys. I am passionate about mental health, in giving back to my community and providing a safe place where children & adolescents can engage with each other.
Please help me to reach my goal of $900 to support rural and regional families, who need RMHC Orange’s services."
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.
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?
Thank you to my Sponsors
