One of Our Favorite Causes: Ronald McDonald House

Written by Alliance Environmental

You’ve probably heard of this great organization, but do you really know what they do?

Ronald McDonald House Charities provide a home-away-from-home for the families of critically ill children from all over the world.  The Houses are safe, clean and full of all the amenities that families need while their child is being treated in the hospital: laundry, kitchens, play areas, computers and internet access, fun family activities, and many other services including counseling.  Without the Ronald McDonald House, many families would be separated from their child, sleeping in their car, driving hours to visit or, worst of all, unable to take advantage of the amazing care in US children’s hospitals.

I spent some time last spring as an intern with the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House and was incredibly impressed with the facilities and the people who work there.  They are committed to caring for these families and develop lifelong relationships with those who have long stays.  Most stays at the Ronald McDonald House are 4-10 days, but some families live there for months at a time.

When I was working with the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House, I took the opportunity to shoot photos of their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Walk for Kids.  It was an amazing experience and very inspiring!

Won’t you join us in supporting the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego?  In March of 2012, Carlos Sanguinetti will be putting on a fundraising dinner at the Ronald McDonald House across from Children’s Hospital in San Diego.  We will be conducting a silent auction which will give us an opportunity to feature local businesses while we raise money for this worthy cause.  If you are interested in getting more information about this event or talking to Carlos about his involvement with the Ronald McDonald House, you can email him at carlossanguinetti@alliance-enviro.com.

Thank you for your support!
