                                                                   “Give Thanks” Comfort Package Book Drive

                                                        For Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s Hospital


In March 2015 friends of ours, Amy and Bryan Walker, had the opportunity to stay at Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s Hospital in order to be close to their son, Jack while he underwent open-heart surgery.  As you can imagine, this was a very difficult time in their lives. Ronald McDonald House is a haven for the entire family - it serves to keep families together during stressful medical procedures and remove some of the juggling and disconnect during an already difficult time.  


In celebration of Jack’s 4th birthday, The Walker Family is assembling Comfort Packages to ‘give thanks’ for the healthy little boy he is today!  The Comfort Packages will be delivered on Thanksgiving Weekend to the families who will be staying at the Ronald McDonald House over the holidays.  


To help fill these Comfort Packages, my daughter Emily and I are conducting a Book Drive so they can include fun activity and sticker books in for the children who are in the hospital (like Jack) and their siblings (like Jack’s older sister Evelyn).  Our goal is to fill 66 boxes! Because of Usborne’s generous 50% match program, and the donation of my commission, a $35 contribution, for example, would buy 6  engaging books!
