One of my readers, April, wanted to make sure I knew about the Ronald McDonald House. I have been meaning to do a post on it for a few weeks and I just have not had time. So thanks for the reminder.
By couponing I am able to save myself a lot of money and able to get many items free or almost free. I feel it is important to take care of my family’s needs first, and then give back to others. A few weeks ago when Albertsons had the Post sale I was able to get a ton of cereal for FREE. I got what my family needed and gave over 40 boxes away to friends that were struggling. I looked at Ronald McDonald house wish list and saw that they were in need of breakfast items. So we took 2 baskets of food to our local Ronald McDonald house.
This is a charity that is close to our hearts being that we have stayed in Ronald McDonald houses in other states while my son was having his 14 heart surgery’s. Staying at a Ronald McDonald house is a huge blessing. It is a humbling thing to except helps from others, but something my family desperately needed. When you stay in the hospital for months at a time, hotel stays were just not an option. Now that my son is doing better we make it a goal to give back. My kids love to take the food to the sick family’s. We hope that it will teach them to serve others.
