I remember when my best friend Sandra stayed at the Ronald McDonald House when her daughter was going through treatment for leukemia. There were not a whole lot of smiles back then, as our conversations were mostly of how sick Kayla was. What I do remember is how much admiration Sandra has for the charity that helped her family in a time of need.
I am so honored to have been asked to partner with HP on their new HP eSmiles initaitive that is working to bring joy to children suffering from severe illness at participating Ronald McDonald Houses in U.S. cities.
The eSmiles program is currently asking for submissions of photos and messages that put a smile on the faces of the children and families of the Ronald McDonald House. For every photo or message sent, HP will donate $1 and has committed to raise $10,000 for each of the five participating Houses. The participating houses include New York City, San Diego, Orange County, Atlanta, and Chicago.
How eSmiles Works
Visit and choose the Ronald McDonald House location you wish to support.
Upload your eSmile photo or write an inspirational message. The eSmile you send will be emailed directly to the Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One located within the House at the location you have chosen; HP has donated a printer to each house.
The eSmile will then be printed and hung on a wall within the house for all to see.
