Ronald McDonald House Wolloongabba-




**WHAT IT TAKES TO ADOPT A RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE NEAR YOU**

1) Make a committment to the house near you.

2) Let me know which house you plan to adopt, so we can steer people in your direction.

3) Start collecting materials for "your house".

4) Ask all you stamping friends and buddies to also help you with your house!!!! Maybe they can just send you some cards or supplies, or you can host a stamping for Ronald's kids party!!!

5) Organize the stamping/scrapbooking items you collect for the house. I try to put all the ribbon together, all the paper together, all the stamps into flat boxes for easy access. Candy boxes or flats(box bottoms for canned veggies) work great for these items.

6) I try to match envelopes to all the cards, so each card has and envelope and put all the cards/envelopes I collect into those little plastic sleeve protectors. This keeps the cards clean, and the germs off of cards, especially if they are going to be handled by a child undergoing chemotherapy or other treatments/diseases in which the immune system is weak!!! Maybe I should also ask for donations of these as well, but I can get people started, as I purchase a bunch on e-bay. I also put whatever the card says inside on a peice of notepaper and insert it in the back of the card.

7) Deliver items you collect to your house!!!

Contact me if you have questions!!!


Please help me spread the word about this project by adding a link to this thread in your signature!!!!!



Just read this e-mail I received from Marilyn, the house director of the Milwaukee Ronald McDonald House:

Hi Jane,
Sue hope you had a wonderful time on your vacation!

Thank you so much for the 2 boxes of cards! They are beautiful and so greatly appreciated by all of our guests.

Tried to pick my favorite and have way too many for that…they are all the best and all are wonderful.

Thank you again Jane. We are grateful for your support and generous supply of greeting cards.

and this one:

[I]Hi Jane,
Thank you for your wonderful note and hope you are getting everyone settled!
We were just talking about the cards today and yes, we are running low of cards. You don’t have to have any before you go to Fl, but maybe in the near future would be fantastic.
Our guests love them and are used and enjoyed by everyone.
Let me know your thoughts.
Happy Labor Day!
Marilyn

IN ADDITION, I just had a friend of mine help out today, by dropping off some Valentine's day treat bags to the kids at the Milwaukee house. She just called me to say that she was excited to help with this project, and was amazed at the number of people who were sitting around the living room stamping!!!! They were making cards and scrapbooks!!!! NOW, I think that is EXACTLY what we all wanted to see happen with this project!!!!
