WHAT WE DO OUR STORIES
Families that have to travel far from home to get the best care for their sick kids find a “home-away-from-home” at our Ronald McDonald Houses. Families are given the option to make a suggested donation for each night of their stay – but no one is ever turned away for their inability to pay. One Share A Night ornament covers the donation for a family to stay with us for one night.
You can help families when they need it most. Sign up for Share A Night ornament alerts or check back in the fall of 2021 for updates on this year’s ornament!
Ten-year-old Matthew drew the picture for our 40th Anniversary Share A Night Ornament. He says his inspiration was thinking about how “kids can spend time with family” while staying at Ronald McDonald House.
Matthew’s mom, Linda, and dad, Patrick, stayed overnight with us eight times while Matthew received life-saving treatment for kidney cancer at Children’s National Medical Center in 2017. Linda, Patrick, and Matthew love to draw together, jump on the trampoline, play games, and sing. Matthew says, “Remember, you can always count on your family.”
Thank you for helping to keep children, like Matthew, close to their families and the care they need.
