The FTC requires me to tell you that I am now a brand ambassador for McDonald's of Central Arkansas. But mainly, I'll talk about McDonald's because I (and my kids) love the place.
Our family loves simple ways to serve and help others. We also -- I'm not gonna lie -- love McDonald's. Always have. We love the menu variety, the kid-friendly atmosphere, and the partnership with the Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing to families of children receiving treatment at area hospitals.
Chances are you've heard of the Ronald McDonald House but may have never given it much thought. You may have even seen the donation boxes that hang on most McDonald's drive-thrus, but in your hurry just passed it by. (I'm guilty of that too.)
The Ronald McDonald House of Arkansas is located near Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock. It is currently a 28-bedroom home away from home for families of sick children who live 45 minutes or more away from Little Rock. Along with a place to stay, the Ronald McDonald House provides dinner every night, laundry facilities, and many other supplies for families who arrive to Little Rock in a hurry, all at no charge to them.
On Tuesday, March 24, McDonald's of central Arkansas will host a "Day of Change" to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. Customers are encouraged to come to one of the central Arkansas McDonald's locations during the designated times and drop off their change in support of this worthy cause.
Click here for the donation times at your area McDonald's. And then watch this video about the heart and mission of Ronald McDonald House. (They're getting ready to build a brand new house!) You'll never hurry past one of the donation boxes again.
If you get to attend and donate at the "Day of Change," use the hashtag #forRMHC on social media to encourage others to get involved.
