The Ronald McDonald House is a pretty well known program, and also a really great one! Sometimes, when children are sick and need treatment, their families have to travel across the country to bring them to bigger hospitals to receive the care that they need. This sometimes presents a problem because the families have no where to stay, and no one wants to leave their child alone at the hospital for very long! That's where the Ronald McDonald houses come in. They provide a place for families to stay, at no cost, while their children are receiving treatment, which definitely helps put the parent's minds at rest!
One of the great things about this charity is that they accept a pretty unique kind of donation that I happen to have a lot of. In fact, all of those soda tabs in the count at the right are going to the Ronald McDonald house! They collect soda tabs to be recycled for money. Of course, you could always recycle cans yourself and donate that money, as I did earlier, but soda tabs are easier for them to store. It's a great creative way to give back, and the number of tabs really starts to add up quickly!
