Become A Family Ambassador

Many times when a family has a seriously ill child in need of medical care they will need to make multiple trips in order for their child to receive the required medical attention. For these families making trips, monthly donations act as a security blanket--ensuring they will always have a "home away from home" to come to.


Have you stayed close with Ronald McDonald House Charities Southwestern Ontario?

Do you call us your "home-away-from-home" for your child's ongoing procedures and appointments in London, ON or Windsor, ON?

Are you looking for a way to help raise awareness and support for families with seriously ill children?


If you answered YES to any of the above questions, becoming a Family Ambassador may be the perfect fit for you!

 

What is a Family Ambassador?

Family Ambassadors fully embrace the RMHC mission. From personal experience, they understand what we as an organization do and like to share their experience to help others understand. Whether they stayed close at RMH London or RMH Windsor, or visited the RM Family Room London while in-hospital, Family Ambassadors are those looking to give back by, for example, speaking/volunteering at local fundraisers & RMHC-SWO Annual Events, sharing their family's story with supporters on our website and social media pages, or providing a family perspective while sitting on an event committee . There are a variety of ways to help the House as a Family Ambassador!

Meet Justin

Justin's Family needed to stay close when he was diagnosed with leukemia at 16 years old. The family stayed at Ronald McDonald House London for 198 nights, saving the family a 2-hour drive (each way) from their home in Windsor, ON.

Today, Justin and his family support their "home-away-from-home" in a number of ways, from sharing their story and RMH experience with supporters, advocating for McHappy Day, and volunteering at our  Annual Fundraising Events.
