It's All About Lappy
Proud To Support
Ronald McDonald House Charities and Flyers Charities
"...It's almost enough to make you want to get hold of one of those
It's All About Lappy T-shirts they covet in Denver..."
(Calgary Herald, 10/29/08)
Known as The House That Love BuiltŪ, the Ronald McDonald House program has been helping seriously ill children and their families for decades. Each Ronald McDonald House provides a safe, welcoming and warm home away from home for families of children receiving medical treatment at nearby hospitals.
As of April 2010, we are proud to announce our partnership with the Flyers Charities branch of the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation. The principal focus of the Foundation is to support non-profit organizations that provide educational and recreational resources to underserved youth and to causes that engage in medical research and other important healthcare initiatives.
Since 2006, "It's All About Lappy" has raised almost $18,000 for the Ronald McDonald Houses in Southern New Jersey, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Denver and Aurora, CO with our shirt project, our Ronald McDonald House Walk For Kids teams, matching donations, and our other fundraising activities.
To date, over 1000 shirts and sweatshirts have been sold to fans in 41 states in the USA, 4 provinces in Canada and 11 countries around the world.
"The Ronald McDonald House is close to my heart. It's a brutal event for families when cancer or any disease hits. (Ronald McDonald Houses) do so much for families. My thing is to stop by when kids don't expect it and put a smile on their faces for an hour or two."
