Ronald McDonald House Charities provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation and support for families with children in hospital. We’re committed to helping families stay together when a sick child needs to heal and cope with their illness. Because being together during a time of crisis is not just a physical matter; it’s an emotional one too. If you enjoy the books, please give what you can and help us keep families together, close to their sick children, so all little ones experience the comfort of a bedtime story.
