Ronald McDonald House Charities provide a “home-away-from-home” for families with critically ill or injured children being treated in area medical facilities at little or no cost. These Houses are built on the simple concept that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay. Houses provide all the comforts of home including hot meals, comfortable living spaces, laundry facilities and more.
In 2008, ACN began working with the Ronald McDonald House Charities and raises funds for this organisation at each of ACN's global events. "We thought we could do the most good by really focusing on a charity that embraced our core value of helping families with children. That led us to Ronald McDonald House Charities," ACN Chairman and Co-Founder Robert Stevanovski says of the company's designated global charity. ACN matches any donations made by employees and Independent Business Owners euro for euro, and together have raised millions worldwide to support Ronald McDonald House Charities.
