While my little one spent 79 days in our local children’s hospital I realized how important Ronald McDonald Houses are to families. It gives them somewhere to stay near their children and not have to worry about expenses and staying in a hotel. I live fairly close to the hospital and would drive there every morning and come home at night, so I did not have this additional worry. I did use the Ronald McDonald room in our hospital. It was a place to get a quick cup of tea and check my email. I was often able to update my family on E’s progress and check in with my close friends.

Please remember on May 2nd that with the purchase of Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafe beverage that McDonald’s Canada will donate $1to local children charities such as the Ronald McDonald Houses Charities.  I know I will be stopping by for my coffee there that morning.
