What It Meant to Amplify for Our Families
For 24 hours on March 1 and 2, the city of Austin joined together to raise $10 million for 700 nonprofits during Amplify Austin. Together with 15 individual fundraisers who raised money on our behalf, matching donations from generous donors and hundreds of friends who made gifts, we raised over $40,000 during this online city-wide event!
Donations made during Amplify Austin will support thousands of families with sick children that rely on Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas by keeping them close to the care their children need. We give families with a sick child what they need most — each other. They find comfort at the Ronald McDonald House; they rest and recharge at our six Ronald McDonald Family Rooms; and they receive complimentary items from our Happy Wheels Carts as they wait by their child’s beside. From the pillows they sleep on to the snacks they take while spending long hours at the hospital, your generosity during Amplify Austin will comfort our families facing one of the most challenging times of their lives.
Thank you for AMPLIFYING our families.
