Leap Year 2020 Appeal – #GiveADay

Leap Year Give A Day 2020

 

At Ronald McDonald House Charities UK, we understand how precious time is. That’s why we provide free accommodation and support to families with children seriously ill in hospital. So families are able to stay together – and keep close.

The chances of being born on a leap day are 1 in 1,461. That’s pretty rare and special! Much like the babies, called ‘leaplings’, whose parents stay in our Houses while they receive treatment.

Any Leap Year is an exception to the rule, so we are asking whether you can give away a day to the families staying with us over 29th February with their ‘leaplings’. It costs us £25 to accommodate a family a day and on Saturday 29 February, we will look after nearly 400 families across the UK.

Each House is just a few minutes walk from the hospitals, so it’s a real lifeline for families who are going through a very tough and emotional time – especially when you consider many children are sent hundreds of miles away from home to get the best medical care.

100% of your donation will go directly to supporting those families, so that they have a safe, comfortable place to sleep, rest and eat, away from the intensity of the hospital ward.

Your donation will really help families to stay together – and keep close.
