In the spirit of family togetherness, I’m giving away 10, count them TEN “Family Time” prize packs to raise awareness for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and all the ways people can support RMHC.

I remember when I was a member of the Thomas Jefferson Junior Woman’s Club we donated breakfast cereals or personal care products to the RMHC.  So many families spend time there while their children are sick and any supplies that we gave were so appreciated.

They have introduced the Family Time Widget.   This year, McDonald’s extended the in-restaurant Happy Meal fundraiser online through a sharable “Family Time. Happy Time” widget. Families are encouraged to pledge minutes of “happy time” together via McDonald’s Facebook page. McDonald’s will donate one penny to RMHC for each minute pledged, with a goal of reaching 1 million minutes and $10,000 to donate towards RMHC programs.


Go to the app and let me know what you think!   What would you ( or did you ) choosing to do with your time?

You don’t have to use the app, (but hey, you can!!)  Take a look tho and get some ideas of how to spend your family time!

Extra entries for Tweeting the link to the RMHC app…. “Help Ronald McDonald House Charities and enjoy family time!” – leave the tweet url here

I’ll be choosing 10 winners who will each win a Family Fun Prize Pack that includes: a cool family activity kit (e.g., arts & crafts, movie night, ourdoor family fun) and a McDonald’s coupon for a free Southwest Salad and Apple Dippers.

Contest is over December 10 at midnight.  Make a difference, spread the word!

    What a great way to bring accountability to the things people say they will do. I will pledge to let my kids help me with dinner. That way I get a little help, and a little quality time with my babies!
