MAKE OCTOBER 15 A DAY OF CHANGE
October 15th is the anniversary of the opening of the very first Ronald McDonald House. We commemorate this special day with a GLOBAL one-day fundraising challenge called Day of Change. You’re invited to be a Day of Change Fundraising Champion and by encouraging your friends, family members and co-workers to donate through your own custom fundraising page. Your efforts create a huge impact for the thousands of children and families that call our House “home”.
You don’t have to be an expert fundraiser to make a huge impact. Every dollar counts:
A $25 donation can cover the costs of arts and crafts supplies for a week. You’ll help families get a break from the stress of the hospital by providing a family game, or activity night.
$50 covers the costs of milk and snacks for a week. You will ensure families always have milk for a bowl of cereal in the morning, coffee for the long day ahead, and a snack to get them through the afternoon.
By raising $75, you’ll help cover the costs of bedding supplies for a week. That’s new pillows, linens and bedding so our families can have a clean, comfortable room to return to at the end of a long day.
When you raise $100, you’re giving the gift of togetherness. It costs $100 a night to operate a room at Ronald McDonald House. While families are encouraged to donate $15 a night, no family is ever turned away for their inability to pay.
