25DoHK: Bring treats to a Ronald McDonald House

Give me a soapbox and I will talk about Ronald McDonald House until I run out of breath. Like any good former Alpha Delta Pi Philanthropy Chair, Ronald McDonald House Charities is the number one philanthropy in my heart. In my time as Philanthropy Chair for the Zeta Theta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi, I was able to learn so much more about the amazing things that Ronald McDonald House is doing, as well as visit the Houses my sorority sisters to cook meals for families when they need it most.

Ronald McDonald Houses are run through an incredible network of passionate volunteers serving as innkeepers, chefs, decorators, shoulders to cry on, and much more. Volunteer with some friends to cook a meal at a local House and you’ll be able to help people from all walks of life and in all circumstances. No matter what each family is going through, at the end of the day you are helping them by providing a hot meal and a welcoming place to stay, saving them money, time and stress during their times of need.

RMHC International Convention

At the 2011 RMHC International Convention with Alpha Delta Pi sisters from all over the country

This week, I took care of my boyfriend who is sick with pneumonia,  as well as was home with my mom who’s been sneezing and coughing like crazy. This being said, I decided to forgo cooking something for the families at RMHC since I didn’t want to spread any germs. I dropped off some pop tabs we’d been collected in the Gentes house, and hopefully this post will inspire some readers to do some cooking at a Ronald McDonald House!

  1. So, you are saying that if a stranger, say me, gave you a soap box to talk about Ronald McDonald Houses from, you would do it until you run out of breathe? If I took you up on that challange, would you faulter? I write eBook fiction and recently I wrote a book called “Dear Emma” and it is currently on Amazon, asking price, $2.99. Of that, I get $1.72 and I want to split that money with RMH. For every book I sell, over the next year, RMH gets 72 cents. I hope to sell a million copies but in order to do that, I need to get the word out. Imagine my suprise when I read you needed a soap box. Go to my blog, check me out and see that I am legit. Provide me and e-mail and I will gift you a copy of Dear Emma; better yet buy a copy (either way, RMH gets their cut) looking forward to hearing from you and keep up the good work.

    • How awesome of you to split the proceeds of your book with RMH! “Dear Emma” sounds like a great read, I’ll have to purchase myself a copy tomorrow and get to reading!

    The vulnerability has apparently been fixed considering that the interview with Russo occurred, and usernames are again safe and secure.
