"The Season of Giving . . . "
With Christmas and the New Year right around the corner, now is the time to consider all that we have and those that are less fortunate. As you know, I am honored to be donating my time to design a guest bedroom in the newly expanded Ronald McDonald facility at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, which will now be the largest of its kind in the world. This holiday season, I urge you to think of the children who will be benefiting from my design and make a generous donation to this wonderful cause.
Ronald McDonald House is a fantastic charity that provides a home-away-from-home and supportive community for families as their children undergo treatment for life-threatening illnesses at surrounding hospitals. The soothing environment that the Ronald McDonald House provides is crucial for these families as they grow and heal together.
With its new 52,000 square foot building, the Ronald McDonald House at Stanford will feature 123 guest rooms. As of 2014, the Stanford location had to turn away 4,698 families due to their limited capacity and on average had 34 families on their waitlist every night. The new addition will give families with children undergoing treatment for heartbreaking ailments such as cardiovascular surgery, neonatal intensive care, and oncology a rejuvenative, an inviting place to stay during their time of need.
I am incredibly grateful for all of those who have donated, but am still in need of significant support to complete my design. Your donations will go directly towards purchasing durable furnishings that will aid in creating comfortable spaces for children and families during their time of healing. Please join me in supporting this fantastic cause with a tax-deductible donation here.
I can't wait to make this project come to life with your help.
