Donate to this fundraiser

Right now, it’s hard for all families to stay close - but it’s even harder for families of seriously ill children, especially those who must travel far from home. As Canada’s family care charity, we understand the importance of keeping families close, especially during these difficult times. Our families need you, now more than ever. RMHC across Canada has experienced a 30-70% reduction of funding due to cancellation of fundraising events and volunteer programs as a result of COVID-19. As an organization that relies heavily on volunteers and donors, we need your help! Across the country, we are rallying together as Canadians to fundraise $387,000 to help us keep families close. The target amount honours the number of families we’ve helped from coast to coast since 1981, and in support of the families that will continue to need our support now and into the future. As an individual House, RMHC Ottawa has set a fundraising goal of $5,000. Our community has come together to show immense compassion and generosity during this extraordinary time. We are asking you to continue to expel some of this kindness on to us. As a recognized essential service, we continue to serve existing families at Ronald McDonald Houses Ottawa during COVID-19. In support of our hospital partner, CHEO, we have temporarily repurposed our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, right inside the hospital, to provide rest and respite for frontline healthcare workers and families who need to take a moment away from their childs bedside to freshen up. Help us reach our goal. Your donation will have a direct impact on continuing to deliver our Mission of keeping families close to their seriously ill child being treated in hospital through: • Individually packaged non-perishable food • Hot meals for a family • Extra cleaning supplies for advanced cleaning procedures • Gift of Family Nights to help a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House We believe we are stronger together. And if we can’t be together, we can work together to support families with seriously ill children across your community. We are forever grateful for our volunteers and donors, and appreciate your consideration and generosity this #GivingTuesdayNow. Stay safe, stay home, and keep your loved ones close.
