Kendrick Harding Rich Fund 2013

Kendrick Harding Rich (June 15, 2012 – December 16, 2012)

On December 17th, I donated 50% of the years' profits to the Ronald McDonald House Toronto. We stayed there for six months while he was treated at Sick Kids Hospital since we live almost two hours away. By staying at Ronald McDonald House, we were able to be at our son's bedside for extended periods of time, often well into the night.

Ronald McDonald House does an incredible job of taking care of families so they can focus on their children. The residence had extensive facilities from laundry to a courtyard with barbecues to a huge kitchen. Many children do not stay at the hospital during treatments, and they (and their siblings) had access to a gymnasium, games room, library and even a certified public school inside the building.

I strongly encourage you to support your local Ronald McDonald House through either donation or volunteer work (each week a different company came in to cook us all dinner!). Thank you all for helping me raise some money to give back to this incredible organization.
