Cameron was a very happy kid when we got back to San Antonio. You see, Cameron has been saving pull tabs from soda cans because his school is collecting them for the Ronald McDonald house. Ronald McDonald Houses collect pop tabs instead of entire aluminum cans because it's more hygienic to store tabs than cans, and collection and storage is easier. The program is an easy way for people of all ages to support RMHC and know they are making a difference for families and children.
The Ronald McDonald houses are very special places where families who have children in the hospital can stay. Staying at one of these houses helps with hotel expenses but it does a lot more than that. It's a place with toys and things for kids to do while they or their siblings have to be in a hospital. It enables families to be together and have a more normal life while undergoing health issues. We have personal experience with the Ronald McDonald house in Ft Worth because Cameron had surgery for a brain tumor a couple of years ago and we stayed there. It is a great place.
We have all been saving the pull tabs but today I gave Cameron the bag of pull tabs that my RVing friend Birdie has saved over a long period of time. He was thrilled. That is a lot of tabs.
Thanks Birdie, these tabs will be going to back to Brownwood to Cameron's school and he is very proud and happy to be taking them with him when he goes back to school next week.
Ronald McDonald Houses deserve support for the great service they provide. If you happen to be military, Fisher Houses provide the same great support for those in military hospitals.
