Give Families the Gift of Time Together

Make this Christmas one to Remember

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® programmes and Family Rooms 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.

If you would like to support us by donating, you can do so here. 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.

 

 

You can ensure families get a Christmas gift they’ll never forget by sponsoring a beautiful, festive wreath.

For $500, you will cover the cost of two nights’ accommodation, a Christmas feast, and a visit from Santa for a family staying at the Ronald McDonald House South Island in Christchurch or at the Family Room, Southland Hospital.

Your festive wreath will go on display around the House along with your name, to be seen by all of the families and visitors.
