LUXURIOUS SLEEP FOR THE FAMILIES AT
In 2015 we were thrilled to partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) New Zealand to supply Sealy Posturepedic beds. We are proud to provide ongoing support for RMHC® New Zealand to help families sleep in comfort.
As part of our ongoing partnership, we have delivered hundreds of beds over the last four years, to help provide a home-away-from-home feeling for families when they need it the most. We very much admire the work RMHC® New Zealand does in supporting families throughout their child’s medical journey and want to support those families in need and do what we can to help.
RMHC® New Zealand CEO Wayne Howett says "our houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child - not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head to rest at night. Thanks to our partnership with Sealy, our families have a safe, healthy and comfortable sleeping environment to recharge and recover, close to their hospitalised child".
In 2018 nationwide RMHC® New Zealand provided accomodation and support for over 4,300 people, a significant increase on the previous year.
We are also pleased be able to provide additional support to those families staying at RMHC® New Zealand by taking time to help out at the house, with activities such as making lunches for the families in care - it is great to have the opportunity to give something back to the community.
