Become a House Warmer

Give the Best Gift of All

Become a House Warmer for Ronald McDonald House South Island and your regular donation will give families with a child in hospital what they need the most – each other.

Each year we provide a home-away-from-home for more than 1,200 families who must travel to Christchurch and Invercargill for their child’s medical treatment, like Ajah and her family. By removing the stressors of everyday life, families can focus on what matters most – their child.

House Warmers_Ajah and sisterSeven-year-old Ajah, her Mum Sharon and family have been staying at the Christchurch House since September last year while Ajah is undergoing chemotherapy.

For anyone who has donated their time, services or money to Ronald McDonald House South Island, Sharon has two words – Thank You.

“Just the impact you have on the families by donating and allowing this service to continue is amazing and takes the weight off everyone’s mind.

“When you’re in the crux of a situation like ours, your mind is all over the place as you’ve just been given this diagnosis and you don’t know what’s happening and you don’t know what to expect. You don’t really think about the little things like I need to do washing or have dinner. But then being at the House, everything you need is there. That is thanks to you – the supporters of the House.”

Our House Warmers are exactly that – the ones who consistently provide the cosy comforts for families when they’re far away from home.

Families like Ajah’s stay many nights with us completely free of charge, and as an independent charitable trust, we rely heavily on the generosity of our donors.

As a House Warmer, you’re not just a regular giver. You are giving hope, comfort and the gift of togetherness.
