Family Time PLUS a Giveaway!

I am a huge fan of McDonald's.

It started when I lived in Arizona, and it was 147 degrees out, and I was stuck in my house with a bunch of short people, who were going stir crazy. You see, in Arizona, ALL of the McDonald's have fabulous indoor play places. And I may have taken my kids to a different McDonald's every day. They would get to play for a few hours, and I would get to have some mommy time with a soda and a book. (Because seriously guys, nothing beats a large $1 soda.... okay, maybe synchronized naps... but c'mon, how often does that happen?)

Anyways, McDonald's LOVES families, and they are huge supporters of families spending time together. In fact, they believe in it SO much, that they are using your family time to give back to families in need.

For every minute you pledge to family time, McDonald's will donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I'm sure you've all heard about the Ronald McDonald House Charities, but in case you haven't, here's why they're amazing.
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities is a non-profit corporation that creates, finds and supports programs that directly improve the health and well being of children
  • Ronald McDonald Houses serve more than 7,200 families each day around the world, saving them over $257 million a year in hotel costs.
  • RMHC provides stability and resources to families so they can get and keep their children healthy and happy. All RMHC-supported programs provide a bridge to quality health care and give children and families the time they need together to heal faster and cope better.

Not only that, but Every. Time. you buy a happy meal, or a mighty kids meal,  a donation is made to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. How awesome is that?

Even awesome-er? (totally is a word.)

Disclosure: I totally got one of these family prize packs, and we heart it big time. All opinions are my own, and I think you should go to McDonald's and try their Fruit and Maple Oatmeal... you know, if it's available in your area and all. Because it's delicious. Otherwise, I suggest a happy meal.
