Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada

WestJet gives Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Canada wings. WestJet donate flights to the charity which is dedicated to helping the families of seriously ill or injured children stay together as a family while their child heals.

Through the airline's community investment program, WestJet Cares for Kids, WestJet will donate flights to support RMHC families, fundraising and administration. WestJet flights help keep families staying at a Ronald McDonald House together no matter the distance.

Ronald McDonald House Charities ® (RMHC®) of Canada is a national charity dedicated to helping support the families of sick children across Canada. RMHC knows that when a child faces serious illness or disability they face it better as a family, and they are dedicated to helping kids and supporting families when they need us most. RMHC achieves this by supporting each Canadian Ronald McDonald House®, the Ronald McDonald Family Room® Program, and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles™. Coast to coast the Ronald McDonald House network of programs served 13,327 families in 2012.

Since opening in 1981, Ronald McDonald Houses in Canada have served more than 246,507 families through the Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles. By 2014, the Canadian Ronald McDonald House network of programs and support will reach 20,000 families a year!
