Your spare change adds up to a lot of help
A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much. But when millions give, the amount those coins help children and families worldwide is truly amazing.
The RMHC Donation Boxes are our system’s largest ongoing fundraisers. It’s from people like you filling the Donation Boxes with quarters, dimes and nickels. Last year alone, more than $54 million was collected worldwide.
Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the Donation Box?
- If every McDonald’s customer dropped in a penny into an RMHC Donation Box every time they visited, we could raise more than $250 million to support RMHC children and families around the world.
- A full Donation Box could let a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House for up to one night while their child receives care at a nearby hospital.
- A full Donation Box could provide a child with a dental screening in a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
- Change in the Donation Boxes can give families a place to rest in a Ronald McDonald Family Room, just steps from their child’s hospital bed.
Show your support when you see a Donation Box at a McDonald’s by dropping in your spare change. Spread the word and suggest to your friends and family that they do the same.
