Ronald McDonald House Charities

Ronald McDonald House Charities

"The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. Guiding us in our mission are our core values:
  • Focusing on the critical needs of children.
  • Celebrating the diversity of the programs we offer and the staff, volunteers and donors who make them possible.
  • Staying true to our heritage of more than 36 years of responsible stewardship.
  • Operating with accountability and transparency."

The Ronald McDonald House Charities is a charitable, non-profit group headquartered in Oakbrook, Illinois, USA, whose goal it is to "provide families stability and resources so they can keep their child healthy and happy." True to their mission, the RMHC has opened more than 290 chapters in more than 54 countries and regions, with 309 Ronald McDonald Houses, grants to various non-profit organizations for the needs of children, and even scholarships.

Ronald McDonald House Charities donation boxes can be seen all over McDonald's fast-food restaurants across the United States and other countries, counting up the change until they can help a child somewhere grow up that much more healthily; a truly admirable cause that often does not receive enough support or attention from the first-world.

Don't let me keep you here -- Get over to Ronald McDonald House Charities to help now!
