Nexen's Giving Team for Kids
We love our youngest community fundraisers!
We especially love that when they choose to support Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southern Alberta, we can stretch their donations further!
Nexen is the sponsor of our Giving Team program, and they are generously matching all donations from youth, up to $25,000!
Are you between 4 and 17 years old?
Then, your donation dollar becomes two! That's a 100% Return on Investment. Ask your parents about it. They'll tell you it's a good deal!
So how will you raise money to join the Giving Team? Here are some ideas:
Kids just like you have donated money to the House after their birthday. If you're celebrating a birthday soon, why not ask friends and family for donations instead of gifts? Check out our special birthday invites here...
Have a Used-Book Sale
You're older and smarter and maybe tired of the books you enjoyed a few years ago. Why not have a book sale to support the families in the House?
Get into the Lemonade Business
Set up a lemonade stand and encourage your neighbours to support the cause. Here's a lemonade recipe to get you started:
1 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 cup bottled lemon juice
6.5 cups water
Add ice. Sell and serve!

You can also support the House by collecting these items:
Bottles, cans and other recyclables!

Register your school with Alberta Cans for Kids!
Sign your school up and start collecting recyclables for the House. We'll provide you with recycling bins and Alberta Bottle Depot Association will provide collection services. Learn more and register your school here...
You can also donate new, unopened gifts to the House. These gifts will go into our Magic Room. The Magic Room is how we celebrate special occasions in the House. If a child at the House has a birthday or finishes a big part of their medical treatment, they get a trip to the Magic Room to pick out a toy to celebrate. Check out our special birthday celebrations invites here...
$1 + $1 = $2
No contribution is too small. Every bit helps!
