Give the gift of time this Christmas


Your donation helps us provide a home-away-from-home for families with children in hospital this festive season. Thank you for helping us keep families together when they need each other most.


Christmas is a time for families to be together

Every day, we provide a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families with a child in hospital. Your donation helps us keep the lights on and doors open, to bring families together for Christmas.

As we look toward the holiday season, we know that many families will be staying at Ronald McDonald House® and Ronald McDonald Family Room® programmes across the country during this time.

Families stay free of charge at our Houses and Family Rooms in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Invercargill. Your donations help to support families with a place to sleep near the hospital, a home-cooked meal and a friendly ear to listen to on tough days. By removing the stressors of everyday life, families can focus on what matters most – each other.
