Day 0 of #58DayCountdown = Ribbon Cutting on our new 20,000 square foot expansion! We have 20 more rooms available, 58 total, for families to find love, support, healing and hope. As Ray Croc, founder of McDonald’s said, “None of Us is as Good as All of Us.” On behalf of our past, present and future, we humbly say, “Thank you!” to each and every person who has helped the House that Love Built.
1 day left in #58DayCountdown! Madison's PALS sponsored room 121 in memory of Madison Arnold, who was born 10/1. She was 14 when she passed away 03/12/09. Madison’s PALS provides Peace, Awareness, Love & Sunshine to children fighting serious illness & for the families of children left behind after the fight is over. The many families who will stay in “Madison’s” room will feel surrounded with peace & love.
Two heads are better than one, and in the case of Will Courtney and Bob Lohman, Making More Rooms For Love Campaign Co-Chairs, this is very true. Their collective intellect and knowledge of the Fort Worth community, combined with calm and steady leadership ensured a successful campaign, completing our fundraising goal of $8 million a year ahead of schedule. With 2 days to go in our #58DayCountdown, we honor Will and Bob who have hearts as big as the House. #LOVERMHFW
Every family that stays here is special, and every child’s journey is their own, but some families we get to know very well. That's the Olson family. Born in 2003, sweet Kyra battled cancer, & she was always incredibly brave. We cried with mom, dad & sister when we learned of her passing earlier this year, but she will forever be a part of us. We remember this precious life with 3 days to go in #58DayCountdown.
We love families no matter the type or size! Summer news from the Fort Worth Zoo brought this family of elephants to our #58DayCountdown with 3 days. With the birth of Bowie on 8/5, the FW Zoo celebrated the 3rd elephant born to them. 15 YO Bluebonnet was born 12/16/98 to Rasha, & Blubonnet is mom to Bowie. Rasha is also mom to Belle, born 7/7. Just as our families find strength in being together so do the 3 generations of elephants at the FW Zoo with the dedicated keepers who watch over…
It has taken many hands to put together the House that Love Built. We were in good hands with the many people who poured the foundation, nailed the framework, hung the sheetrock, roofed the building, painted the walls, plumbed each room, wired each space – we are almost there! We are so very grateful for the many subcontractors who put a bit of themselves in this project. 4 days to go in the #58DayCountdown! #LOVERMHFW
“I’m lovin’ it!” We have a special relationship with McDonald’s. Not only do we carry part of the McDonald’s name in our name to lend recognition and credibility to our organization, but also McDonald’s brings us financial and volunteer support on a corporate level as well from the Owner/Operators and suppliers in our area. Alex Williams, GM and VP of the Greater Southwest Region and Mike Ray, QSC VP of the Greater Southwest Region open up our final 5 days in the #58DayCountdown! #LOVERMHFW
Frost Bank is indeed more than a bank, and our families are indeed more than numbers, but together strength in numbers is found. Frost has supported the House in many aspects from meals to events to our capital campaign. Frost is a true philanthropic partner for this community. Thank you for being day 6 in our #58DayCountdown!
This little girl, Kodi, and her mom, Tracy, stayed at the house off and on for three months between March 2010 and May 2011. She was 5 when diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, and thanks to the great doctors at Cook Children's Health Care System, Kodi is now 9 years old!! She and her pet hedgehog, Pepper, say, “Hello!” on day 9 of the #58DayCountdown. Kodi once said about the House, “This place…they just love you.” Yes, we do! #LOVERMHFW
