Bringing Families Home Campaign

DKI Canada, and our Members, are proud supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada. To mark our 30th anniversary we have created the "Bringing Families Home" campaign with a goal to raise $250,000 for RMHC Canada.

Bringing Families Home

Since 2019 DKI Canada Members have supported rooms in Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada, including those in Newfoundland, Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Manitoba and BC/Yukon.

In addition to the adopt-a-room program at individual houses, we have volunteered at house dinner nights, supported house initiatives such as the Atlantic golf tournament, and thrown our support behind McHappy Day across the country.

As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, and in recognition of our shared desires to ensure families have a place to call home, it was a natural fit for us to partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada (RMHC) on a national level.

While our Members across the country work to get families back home, and back to normal after a disaster, RMHC works to give families with sick children in hospital a home-away-from-home. It was with this inspiration that we created our campaign, dubbed "Bringing Families Home''. With an ambitious goal of raising $250,000 to help RMHC houses across the country, our Members are hosting fundraising initiatives in their local communities, as well as nationally.

Throughout 2023 our Members will be engaging in a wide variety of activities, from ice fishing derbies to Stampede parties and online events, to raise money for the campaign. Donations will also be accepted towards our campaign on the Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada website.

Dan's Story - RMHC X DKI

When 14-month-old Dan Fitzpatrick was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, his family's world turned upside down and they turned to RMHC Canada for help.

In an emotional interview with the Fitzpatrick family, they speak in detail about how Dan didn't have much of a chance to live. They wanted him to be as comfortable as possible and RMHC Alberta gave the family a degree of normalcy in their day-to-day life. Surrounded by other families facing similar challenges, being there provided a sense of community, comfort, and support, and gave Dan the opportunity to truly be a kid.

By the age of five, Dan was officially cleared of cancer. He now lives a happy and healthy life, working as a Project Manager for DKI - RCC Red Deer, and is thrilled to work for a company whose values align well with his own.
