Ok friends and family. I have invited you all to help me put on a dinner at the Ronald McDonald house in Chicago On valentines Day. I invited you all knowing that you would not be able to physically be there, but praying you could help us out.
Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for many who have children with chronic medical needs, or who have been in accidents and are away from home. For $10 a night ( if you can pay), you get a private room with 1-2 beds, a fold out couch, clean linens, a private bathroom, free wifi, and at least one VERY good hot meal per day!!! They also have snacks and activites for the kids. Sometimes they have passes to things like the museum or an event to allow a family to be "normal" even if for only a little while. They have tutors, computers, and TV rooms. We don't know what we would do without RMH.
There are two ways you can help:
1) Monetarily. Even $5 will help tremendously. Anything not spent on dinner, will go back to the RMH as a donation for much needed supplies. There are two ways to do this. You can send a donation via Paypal or snail mail. Our Paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org. To mail or drop off something, Stephanie Wyatt, 2501 Eastroad, Danville, IL 61832
2) This is Valentines day. Many of these kids are far away from home, sick, and somewhat isolated from their family and friends. They miss out on things like class parties and giving valentines to friends. I am asking if some of you would be willing to send valentines to these kids and/or supplies to make valentines for others! Stickers, paper, glue sticks, crayons, etc. I would LOVE to see enough Valentines for both the kids at RMH AND the kids in the hospital at Comer Children's Hospital and LaRabida. It's a tall order, but I have faith in my friends and family here.
Again, Paypal address is email@example.com

Please share with your church groups, scout groups, daycare, family and friends. RMH is SO important to families while their children are going through medical care. We don't know what we would do without them! REMEMBER, We only have a little less than two weeks to pull this off!!!! We will be leaving for Chicago on the 12th of Feb, so all valentines will need to be here by then. Thank you!!!!
