William's 29th Birthday Fundraiser
I am very excited to celebrate my 29th birthday with you this coming Saturday!
This year, I would like to try something a bit different. As part of this celebration, I am hoping to raise some money for a charity that is very near and dear to my heart – the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. As some of you may know, I was born 2 month premature and had to spend over 8 weeks in the hospital. While I was there, the RMHC was incredibly generous to my young parents (who were visiting friends in Long Island, far from their home in northern VA), and allowed them to spend time with me and care for me while I recovered and grew into (a very) large baby. RMHC continues to provide incredible support to families as they care for their children.
I was hoping to raise $1,800 for this good cause, and as a thank you, I am looking forward to providing you with all the brunch and booze you can handle. Please consider making a donation.
Your donation will help keep families with sick children together and close to the medical care their children need, when they need it most!
P.S. RMHC is recognized as a public charity under Internal Revenue Code section 509(a) and has 501(c)(3) status. Donations to RMHC are deductible. Donors should consult their tax advisors for questions regarding deductibility. The RMHC EIN is 36-2934689.
Faced with a child’s illness life can stop overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. For parents who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs, there’s an added stress. Distance. Most families have to travel hours for treatment. Living expenses quickly add up. Long drives, lost jobs, worried siblings, sleeping in cars. Being far from family and friends. These are extra burdens no family should have to experience.
Thankfully, RMHC is able to help when it’s needed most. They keep families with sick children near to each other and the medical care and resources they need.
I am doing what I love, to fundraise for RMHC and the families they support. And I need your help! By making a donation today, we can give families the gift of laughter, love and time together. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s.
So, help me raise funds #forRMHC and keep families together by donating today!
