Wondering how you can help during this time? Here are a few quick and easy ideas that help support the many families we serve at the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Illinois. Pick your favorite then share the ideas with your family and friends. Together, we can make a difference.
1. Host a Facebook Fundraiser
Facebook makes it easy to set up a fundraiser from home for causes that are important to you. Simply go to facebook.com/fundraisers, select Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois as the non-profit and follow the instructions listed.
2. Shop Our Wishlists
Check out the wishlists for both central Illinois Houses at rmhc-centralillinois.org/house-wish-list. This includes everyday items for families to use and more. All shopping can be done from your favorite spot on the couch and you can have supplies shipped straight to our Houses!
3. Host a Benefit or Event
Of course, if you plan anything over the next few weeks it would have to be a virtual event, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a huge impact. Ask your favorite local band if they want to help host a virtual concert, or perhaps you can meet up with your friends on Zoom for a Trivia style fundraiser event. Now is also a great time to start planning for when you CAN get together with your friends and family again. Start planning to throw a neighborhood fundraiser party, community benefit, or 5K runs/walks.
Simple or big… everything you do can make a difference.
