Amanda’s Gift

AMANDA


During the Christmas Holiday, my church minister handed 20 random members an envelope containing $5, $10 or $20 and asked the recipients to pass this offering on to someone or some mission in need of a gift. I received an envelope with a $10 bill enclosed. After much thought and consideration, I decided I wanted to do something special for families with children in medical crisis.
About a year and a half ago we lost our granddaughter Amanda, at the age of 25, to a flesh eating bacteria. Amanda was born with Spina Bifida and was paralyzed from the waist down. For many years, I have been collecting the aluminum pull tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and never really thought about the money they received for the tabs – or the fact that some parents find the suggested $10 nightly fee a hardship. It was at this point I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to turn my $10 into something much bigger.
In honor of my granddaughter, I established “Amanda’s Gift” at Ronald McDonald House Charities of SW Florida. This special fund allows others to do a “little more” for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. All donations received that are designated as “Amanda’s Gift” will go directly to helping cover the costs for families who are unable to contribute to their stay. Amanda was a special gift to our family and now she can be a special gift to many more.
