#givingback4archie&friends

We have created this team of Family & Friends in an attempt to try and give back just an ounce of what RMHC have given us as a family of the past 3 years ♥️

As a family we have stayed in excess of 150 nights at Ronald McDonald House Wellington and no cost personally to us.  As a group of family and friends we would dearly love to give a little back to this outstanding charity so they are able to help other families like ours.

Our journey with RMHC started nèarly 4 years ago when I went into labour at 26 weeks and was flown to Wellington by Lifeflight.


We weren’t even really aware of Ronald McDonald House and with a 16 month old son couldn’t have been more pleased to hear those words ‘we have a room across the road for you for as long as you need it’. That in itself was reassuring but to then find out it was at no cost to us personally was phenomenal.

In the months we stayed at RMH Wellington couldn’t have done more for us.  From the amazing home cooked meals, baking, our beautiful bedrooms with comfy beds, the amazing volunteers and staff that keep everything running. It was a massive weight off our shoulders and one we couldn’t put a price on.

Since Archie was born, he has had more general anaesthetics than most of us will have in a lifetime, his surgeries averaged around 8-10 hours, systematically working away at giving him more functionality in his hands and feet.  He has had most of his fingers seperated, skin grafts, a finger moved to make a thumb, his hand removed and centralised due to a complete absence of his radius and to give him control over his hand and amputating his foot and this is the edited version 🥺

As a family we would like show them as much ♥️ as they have showed us and our friends over the past 4 years, and in turn help other families stay together in that time of need.

Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using the ‘Donate’ button.

The more people that know about RMHC® New Zealand, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
