Yesterday, at the invitation of my friend and client, Brittany Fitzpatrick, who is also Miss Shelby County International 2011 and the Communications Director for the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis, I spoke to the employees of the Ronald McDonald House about the benefits of and the best ways to live a healthy and active lifestyle. After my speech, Brittany treated me to a tour of their wonderful facility. While on the tour, I was reminded that although we hear about so many bad things happening in Memphis, there are so many absolutely amazing organizations working tirelessly every day to improve our city and world. The services and kindness provided by the RMH to the families of children suffering from illness are extraordinary and life altering.
I will forever be a supporter of this wonderful organization and will encourage others to do the same. For those of you who do not know, the RMH provides all the resident families with food, toiletries, paper products, and laundry detergent free of charge. Of course, all of these products are provided by donations from the public. If you are looking for a place to donate or a cause to champion, I encourage you to learn more about your local Ronald McDonald House.
