The Countdown to the grand opening of the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House has begun! Only 70 more days until the House at 211 East Grand Avenue opens its doors on June 26th and I’m joining in to help!
Each day on their website, www.RonaldHouseChicago.org and on their Facebook and Twitter they’re featuring a new Countdown Photo of a "famous face or place" (their words, not mine!) in Chicago and today, yours truly is the featured photo!
They’re encouraging the city to join in on the fun, by downloading your own number card here, and posting your photos to their Facebook page – hundreds have already posted their pics! And don’t forget to tweet about it at #86DayCountdown!
(Huge congrats to House Director JAMIE HABERKORN!)
