Give a Gift that Gives Back
As we approach Christmas, the stress of purchasing the perfect holiday gift is all around us. In addition to typical holiday advertisements and sales, we have Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals everywhere. Do you want to give a gift that gives back? Well, we have several options for you! You can give the gift of keeping families close to family and friends.
- Perfect for Everyone
Everyone loves Amazon, right? Are you a frequent shopper of the site? Well, make sure when making your purchases you are using Amazon Smile and selecting RMHCA. A portion of every purchase will come right back to the House in Birmingham. It is simple and does not cost you anything above what you would be spending on those gifts in the first place.
- For the Food Lover in Your Life
Purchase a limited edition Dillard’s cookbook. This Southern Living Cookbook can be purchased at any Dillard‘s location or online and a portion of your purchase benefits the Ronald McDonald House. (This gift will also keep giving year round as the recipient cooks over 250 recipes!)
- An Organizer’s Dream (Great for Bag Lovers too!)
Purchase a Thirty-One Gives Zipper Pouch in Red Wave. For every copy purchased, Thirty-One donates 31 cents to the Ronald McDonald House.
- The Auburn or Alabama Fan Who Can’t Cope After Football Season
Purchase Elevate the Stage Gymnastics Meet tickets. The meet is between the women’s gymnastics teams from the University of Alabama and Auburn University on January 17, 2016 at the Legacy Arena at the BJCC in Birmingham. When purchasing tickets, make sure your ticket type is “Ronald McDonald House” and we will receive a portion of the proceeds from each ticket.
- The Avid Runner or New Year’s Resolution-er
Our Annual Red Shoe Run is in January and an entry into the race helps keep families close. You can purchase an entry to the 10 mile, 5K or 1 mile as a gift and give each recipient a reason to stay in shape during the holidays. Plus after the race, there will be fun for the whole family with kids activities, face painting, a photo booth and more!
- Always in Style
You can always donate in honor or memory of someone you love — if you let us know their contact information, we will send them acknowledgement of your donation. This way they have something to open and you got them something that is always in style — giving back to those who need it.
WAIT, there is one more thing … Didn’t find something that sparks your interest? We also have ornaments and holiday cards available for a $5 donation (each). Our custom “House” ornaments are perfect for any tree — as a gift or for you to keep. Choose from 1 of 4 designs of printed Holiday Cards — “Happy Holidays,” “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah” and Reindeer hands. Each set of cards includes 10 blank envelopes, 10 identical cards that are blank on the inside and include text about RMHCA on the back. (View the cards & ornament on our Instagram!)
While we wish we could send these cards and ornaments far and wide, unfortunately we cannot ship these items — you must come by the House in Birmingham to pick them up Monday – Friday between 8 – 5. If you need to come at a different time, let us know 24 hours ahead of time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have them ready for you.
