McDonald's launches new fundraiser to support families of children receiving medical care

To the editor:

We are excited to announce the start of the "Give a Little Love" fundraising campaign for our charity of choice, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois, or RMHCCI. We invite you to participate and "Give a Little Love" by donating $1 or more, and your name will be written on a heart to be displayed at McDonald's from Jan. 26 through Valentine's Day on Feb. 14. One hundred percent of the proceeds will stay in central Illinois and benefit the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.

Our Ronald McDonald House exists to provide a supportive home away from home for families with children receiving medical care in Springfield, Ill. Ronald McDonald House offers a good night's sleep, hot meals and everything needed to keep parents' lives as simple as possible while they tend to the important task at hand: devoting all of their love and support to helping their child get well.

[to top of second column in this letter]


RMHCCI is a 501(c)(3) charity and could not provide a home away from home to over 400 families each year without the wonderful support of the central Illinois community. Please join us Jan. 26-Feb. 14 to give a lot of love for the families of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois!

For more information, visit rmhc-centralillinois.org  or like the charity's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/rmhcci.
