For more than three decades, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (RMHC) has been keeping families close at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. From their beginning as a grassroots movement established by a partnership between volunteers and local McDonald’s Owner/Operators, the charity has served thousands of families by providing a home-away-from-home while their child is being treated in the hospital. With 137 guest rooms, the Columbus Ronald McDonald House is the largest in the world.


Join Besa and the Ronald McDonald House to make Thanksgiving cards for kids and families staying at House! Due to COVID-19, visitors are not being accepted at the Ronald McDonald House, resulting in isolation for families in long-term care. As a volunteer, you'll write Thanksgiving-themed cards that will be distributed to our friends in treatment who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Let's share love this holiday season! We encourage you to get creative with stickers and craft supplies!


Below are examples of fall or Thanksgiving-themed words of encouragement:

  • We are so thankful for you. 
  • Be strong! You've got this!
  • Know you have a friend who is sending you smiles!
  • Happy Thanksgiving!
  • Happy fall!


Mailing Instructions:

  • All cards must be mailed no later than November 23rd.
  • Please mail cards in one envelope or package, not individual envelopes. 
  • Address:  
  • ATTN: Kate Becker, 711 E Livingston Ave, Columbus, OH, 43205


We'd love to see your Thanksgiving-themed designs! Share photos of you and your family making cards by emailing us at or tagging Besa (@GiveBesa)!
