Please Support the RMHC


      Lets take a little trip...In a town somewhere in America there is a family. The Dad's name is Jim, Mom is Sandy and they have three small children, April, Adam and baby Sarah. On this particular night the family is in a strange town because Sarah is very sick and in the hospital. Sarah needed to come to this town because this hospital treats the illness that she has. Jim and Sandy both work jobs but as you can imagine money is tight for this new family. The family is scared and worried about baby Sarah, but that's not their only problem. The family of course needs a place to stay while they are here. Hotel rooms for this family are going to run around $60-$100 a night, not counting food and gas while they are here. Adding to the problem of Sarah being ill, Jim and Sandy simply don't have the money to live in this town while their baby girl is being treated at the hospital. They don't have anyone to turn to for help in this situation. Or do they? A very kind nurse named Jill at the Hospital tells them they need to check out the local Ronald McDonald House. An answered prayer! Jim, Sandy and the kids visit the Ronald McDonald House and are welcomed with open arms. They are given a nice clean room to sleep in and even a kitchen to fix food in while they are here; all at no cost to them. The hospitality is warm and inviting, there are other folks here in the same situation who provide support to Jim, Sandy and the kids. They are able to stay and visit Sarah without having to worry about paying for a hotel room, which is a blessing sent directly from Above! When you buy a Happy Meal part of the price goes directly to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities. When you visit your local McDonald's and toss a few coins into one of those cannisters every penny goes to the RMHC. I thank You for your support, and you know what? I bet Jim, Sandy and the kids thank you too! My Very Best, Ronald
