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 Greater Western Sydney.
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.
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 Greater Western Sydney 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?
10k...yayWednesday 1st Nov I can't believe it. We hit 10K on Sunday night. What an incredible feeling that a small restaurant in Baulkham Hills could make such a difference. Thank you to everyone who donated.
3 Sleeps to goMonday 23rd Oct On Thursday I'll be heading down to the house to start this 24hr challenge. We had a phone hookup on Friday afternoon and got to meet some of the other participants. Overall as a group, we have raised over $35,000. Excited to think I have raised almost 10% of that. Thank you to everyone who has donated.
$3000 WoohooWednesday 18th Oct Unbelievable. I've just hit $3000. So excited and amazed by the generosity of family, friends, friends of friends and my beautiful customers and community.
Donation JarMonday 9th Oct Thank you to everyone who has popped cash in the jar at work. Whether it was $1 or $50 or a staff member who popped their tips in at the end of the night or bought their 'piggy bank' and emptied it...it is all very appreciated and going to the most amazing cause. Share
End of another monthSaturday 30th Sep So in 27 days I'll be arriving at Ronald McDonald House to participate in this 24hr challenge. I'm really excited for this. We've been partnering with RMH for just over 2yrs now and I still haven't made the time to have a tour. I've seen the kitchen and dining area when we've served meals or held one of our Make Your Own Pizza afternoons.
Pay It ForwardMonday 25th Sep This weekend I put up a post on the business socials that I would match all Pay It Forwards donated this weekend. Thank you to everyone who supports our PIF program. It is amazing how it has grown over the past 3 years. This is what allows us to send pizzas down to RMH every week, to provide StreetMed with 20 free meals and 20 meals at a discounted rate and a hot meal to those in the community that are doing it tough.
Best news everMonday 18th Sep On Thursday night Kobi's family received the call they had been waiting for. His body was all clear of the cancer and on Friday he would take his last chemo tablet ever. Best news ever.
