Ronald McDonald Houses worldwide provide invaluable shelter, support and community to the families of critically ill children while they are undergoing care. The San Francisco Design Center initiated a major philanthropic initiative this year partnering with RMDH at Stanford, expanding the Palo Alto home. When the expansion is complete in December of 2015, it will be the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world, serving children being treated at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital on the Stanford campus.
To contribute to our portion of the Ronald McDonald House project at Stanford go to Alden Miller Interiors’ Donation page.
The office is buzzing with excitement now that we are fully in motion with designs for our rooms at Stanford’s Ronald McDonald House, part of SFDC’s Where Hope Has a Home project. As a designer, the start of a new project is always something that enthuses me — but this project means much more than most.
I believe that interior design has the ability to directly affect our mood, energy, and even health. For the Ronald McDonald House, good design isn’t just important… it’s crucial. Learning about this opportunity from the SF Design Center initiative, I eagerly signed up to give back! Here was a chance to really make a difference in the world at a larger scale through interior design. With my team, I have been developing the concepts for my rooms and am now initiating a campaign to raise funds to furnish these rooms.
This is where we need your help. We want to give these families more than just a roof over their heads, we want to give them a home that will make them feel comforted, healthy, and positive. Through your support and donations, we can do it.
We have set up Pinterest boards for Laundry Room 356, Guest Bedroom 307, and Guest Bathroom 307 so that everyone can join in on the action and see exactly where your generous donations will be going. You can also read more about the design concepts at the Laundry Room Post and Guest Bedroom Post I wrote last week.
Be a part of the cause, and give these families the support that a true home away from home can give. Reference a piece or give to our project as a whole through our page on the Ronald McDonald House Donation site. All donations will be going to the RMH and are fully tax deductible.
At $25-$50 contribution we’ll send out a I gave to Laundry 356 or Bedroom 307 sticker!
At $150 contribution receive our custom ‘Where Hope Has a Home’ bag by Rume…. these bags will look cool.
At $250 contribution have your name on our ‘this room was given in support by’ mirror at the entrance of the room.

Any amount helps so please give at any amount that works for you.
