Poor J has the stomach bug that has been passed around our house. It is also her week to choose who we contribute to so we listed some things for her to consider. She immediately wanted to support her preschool in collecting items for the Ronald McDonald House. I am not sure if she was more inspired because of her school's participation or the fact that Ronald McDonald is involved. Either way, it is a good cause and we are able make her a tangible participant. She will help us collect, choose what to purchase, and drop off items.
The project is described as follows. "Help us as we provide sample donations of shampoo, mouthwash, toothpast, soap, etc. for the families who reside in the Ronald McDonald House while their child is treated at Children's Hospital. "
Ronald McDonald House has been around for 36 years and has many locations. They state that, "We know that families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child heal faster and cope better." Who can't be on board with that right?
