I’m not sure who has aged better over the last 20 years, but I am sure this organization has flourished under Dan’s leadership. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Dan for more than half of that time; I am truly grateful for that experience. Thanks for being you, Dan. Apple and Amazon aren’t the only companies that have changed a bit over the last 20 years: • In 1994, RMHC St. Louis had one House and an annual operating budget of just under $500,000. • In 2014, our amazing staff of 27 and a host of wonderful volunteers support three Houses, eight apartments, three Family Rooms and, somehow, they find time to help manage the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a mobile eye care unit! • Our 2014 operating budget is $3 million! This is an amazing story that would not be possible without the passionate commitment of our staff and volunteers. Nor would it be possible without the incredible financial support from our generous donors. It’s great to take a moment and revel in those accomplishments and think about thousands of families whose spirits have been lifted, stomachs filled, and souls

comforted, while they used one of the RMHC facilities. It’s also exciting to think about what the next 20 years might bring and what possibilities exist for this organization to continue to expand in various ways to keep helping families and children. To that end, there are currently two planning efforts underway – the first is a 3-5 year strategic plan, and the second is the development of a long-range 10-15 year plan. These tools will help guide us into the future, whatever it may bring. So, stay tuned and stay involved; the best is yet to come! Thanks to each and every one of you for all you have done for this wonderful place. Thanks for all you will do for this wonderful place. Peace to you and your families,

THE DUNCAN FAMILY our ronald mcdonald house keeps the duncan family close to their twin daughters

L

ast summer, when Julie Duncan learned she would be having twins, she didn’t know much about the Ronald McDonald House. She had seen the donation boxes inside McDonald’s restaurants, but she never dreamed that she would end up calling the House her “homeaway-from-home.” When she was 13 weeks pregnant, doctors discovered that she had developed Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), meaning one baby was receiving more nutrients and growing, while the other was not. Julie and her husband, Joe, traveled from their hometown of Indianapolis to Cincinnati for fetoscopic laser 3 Heartbeat • Spring/Summer 2014

surgery to treat the condition. At the time, Julie was just 18 weeks pregnant and would need bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. However, seven weeks later, while she was in St. Louis visiting family, Julie suffered a placental eruption in the 26th week of her pregnancy. On December 20, 2013, Julie was rushed to Mercy Hospital where doctors performed an emergency C-section. Because the babies were so premature, they were immediately taken to the NICU, and because Julie lost so much blood, she was hospitalized for 6 days. It would be days before she would be able to see her twin daughters, Abi and Grace. It was a terrifying time for Julie

and Joe. When Abi was born, she weighed 2 pounds, while Grace weighed just 1 pound, 9 ounces and also suffered a brain bleed. “They were so critical, we didn’t know if they were going to make it,” Julie remembers. Once she was able to leave the hospital, Julie moved into our West County Ronald McDonald House with her 18-month-old daughter, Jessica. Since the House is located on the campus of Mercy Children’s Hospital, Julie and Jessica are never more than a few minutes from the NICU. Joe returns home during the week to Indianapolis, where he works as a surgeon, but he makes the trip back to St. Louis every weekend to see his girls.


According to Julie, staying at the Ronald McDonald House has helped her cope with the heartache and stress of having two sick children while being hours away from her husband and hometown. She says the House is not just a place to stay – it’s a true community where she has met lifelong friends, something no hotel or amount of money could provide. “It’s nice to be able to talk to other people who understand,” says Julie. “It helps put things in perspective, and they help me put on a happy face after long days at the hospital.” Without the support of other families who are in similar situations, the past three months would have been incredibly difficult for Julie, as well as Joe, who is away during the week. During that time, Grace has endured brain surgery, two bowel obstruction surgeries, and another operation to repair a hiatal hernia. Julie is happy to report that in late March, Abi was released from the hospital and has joined Jessica and her mother in the Ronald McDonald House. However, Grace still has a long road ahead and will likely spend a few more months in the hospital. During that time, Julie will continue to find comfort and care through RMHC St. Louis. When Julie, Jessica, Abi and Grace do get to go home to Indianapolis, Julie plans to volunteer at the local Ronald McDonald House. “I want to give back because it’s helped us so much,” she says. “This has been the greatest blessing. It feels like home.” ■

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT RUTH AND JIM MARTIN SHARE THEIR TIME AND TALENTS WITH RMHC ST. LOUIS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS In January 2010, Ruth and Jim Martin began donating their time as substitute volunteers at the Ronald McDonald Family Room inside Mercy Children’s Hospital. A year later, they began volunteering in the Family Room every other Thursday. Then, in May 2011, they began volunteering in our newly opened West County Ronald McDonald House every other Friday. About a year ago, Ruth went back to subbing in the Family Room, and Jim started working as a handy volunteer at the West County House every Thursday morning, in addition to their Friday House volunteer shifts. Although they volunteer together, Ruth and Jim fill unique roles at the House. Ruth’s work as a reservationist and Jim’s work as a handy volunteer each help make the House feel like “home” to our guest families. Some of Ruth’s regular duties also include filing paper work, cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming the playroom and sanitizing toys. Of all her duties, Ruth enjoys

7 Heartbeat • Spring/Summer 2014

checking-in new families the most. “Checking people in and getting to see their initial appreciation for where they are is great,” she says. Ruth also lends an ear to families when they simply need to talk. Connecting with the families is another reason Ruth loves volunteering at The House that Love Built. Jim’s work as a handy volunteer ensures that it remains comfortable and safe for the families who call it “home.” “Even though the House is only three years old, all of the families coming in and out cause a lot of wear and tear,” says Jim. Constant wear and tear means that there is always a new project to be done. Jim’s duties range from plumbing and electrical work to furniture repair and maintenance. “It’s fun because you never know what you will be working on,” he says. “I couldn’t calculate how much money Jim has saved the organization,” says Matt Lauer, RMHC St. Louis’

House Operations Manager. “He has an eye for detail that is unmatched, and what he finds, he fixes. If he doesn’t know how to fix something, he does the research and makes it happen.” Taking on a variety of projects is one of Jim’s favorite parts of volunteering, as well as getting to work with the RMHC staff and his fellow volunteers. Jim’s dedication to fixing problems while they are small, and thus preventing major issues from developing, is extremely valuable. Ruth and Jim continue to be dedicated volunteers in an effort to help those who are undergoing the stress and uncertainty of having a child in the hospital. “We were very fortunate with our kids, so it is important for us to give back,” says Jim. “Jim and Ruth are great volunteers,” says Matt, and we couldn’t agree more! “They show up, they check in, and they spend three straight hours cleaning, checking in families, and making sure the House looks perfect.” ■

A CAUSE CLOSE TO HER HEART

W

hen Amy Herin, a director for Thirty-One Gifts, learned that her company would become a national donor for Ronald McDonald House Charities last year, she was overcome with emotion. To Amy, RMHC is more than a worthy cause; it is her family’s “home-away-from-home.” In November 2009, Amy gave birth to twin daughters, Lilly and Tabytha, when she was just 24 weeks pregnant. The girls spent the first few months of their lives at a hospital in the Herins’ hometown of Columbia, Missouri; however, Tabytha was eventually transferred to St. Louis Children’s Hospital to be treated for a number of medical complications. The Herins found themselves in a new city more than 100 miles away from home, spending their days and nights in the hospital by their daughter’s side. That’s when they discovered the Ronald McDonald Family Room – an oasis where Amy could do laundry, find a snack or have a quiet moment to relax. On a few occasions throughout their twomonth stay, Amy and Brent even shared a “date night” in the Family Room, which simply meant being able to share a meal together, outside of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Amy visited the Family Room every day that Tabytha was hospitalized in St. Louis. Since that first visit, the Herins have made countless trips back to St. Louis for medical treatment, each time finding comfort and care in the Family Room. While in the Family Room, Amy found support in the RMHC volunteers who oversee the space. “They would talk to me like they knew me,” she says. “They became my friends.” It’s this special connection that brought tears to her eyes as she heard of RMHC’s partnership with Thirty-One Gifts. “I couldn’t stop crying,” she says. Thirty-One partners with several nonprofit organizations, but, as Amy says, “to have one that is so close to my heart is amazing.” “We are always trying to find ways to give back to Ronald McDonald House Charities,” says Amy. “Thirty-One Gifts has given me that opportunity.”

LEAVING A LEGACY IMPACTS FAMILIES DAWN T. CHRISTOFFERSEN OF DTC ADVISORS, LLC, SHARES A FEW SIMPLE WAYS TO NAME RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF ST. LOUIS AS A BENEFICIARY OF YOUR ESTATE There are a number of very simple methods to name Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis as a beneficiary of your estate. Life insurance and retirement accounts may be passed to RMHC St. Louis through a beneficiary designation, and many other assets, such as bank and investment accounts, may be passed by using a transfer on death (TOD) or pay on death (POD) designation. Life Insurance. Naming RMHC St. Louis as the beneficiary of your life insurance will reduce the size of your gross estate for federal and state estate tax purposes by the amount of the death benefit of the policy on which such designation appears. In addition, if you wish to transfer ownership of the policy to RMHC St. Louis during your life, you may qualify for an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the policy.

1

Retirement Accounts. You may also name RMHC St. Louis as beneficiary of a retirement account such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA or other pension. Your gross estate for federal and state estate tax purposes will be reduced by the fair market value of such an account at the time of death. Further, the gain that has accrued in the account during your life, which would typically be subjected to income tax when your heirs liquidate the account, will not be taxable to RMHC St. Louis given our tax-exempt status. However, if you plan to name RMHC St. Louis and other non-charitable beneficiaries on the same account, please consult with your accountant or wealth plan advisor regarding the tax implications.

2

Proper Designation. If you wish to name RMHC St. Louis as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account, you should request a beneficiary designation form from the company where the policy or account is held, and where the form so requests you to list the primary beneficiary, you should provide the following:

3

Primary Beneficiary: Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis, Inc. If you wish to name RMHC St. Louis as a beneficiary of a bank account or other asset, you should request a Change of Owner form, or in some instances, a separate TOD/POD designation form, from the company where the account or asset is held, and where the form so requests, list the following: [Your Name TOD/POD Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis, Inc.] For more information, please contact Frank Cognata, V.P., Development, at 314-932-4148 or fcognata@rmhcstl.com.

shoes news Updates from our young professionals group

meet the president ryan kuryla, president of the rmhc st. louis red shoe society The Red Shoe Society celebrated its inaugural year in 2013. After attending some initial events and planning meetings, I was offered the position of president and quickly accepted. To me, the chance to serve in a leadership role was an opportunity to help cultivate a new generation of supporters, advocates and volunteers for RMHC. During my childhood in St. Louis, I grew up respecting the organization’s reputation for philanthropic excellence. As an adult, I was drawn to RMHC because I could physically see the results of the group’s incredible work in our community. Luckily for me (and RMHC), there are many other young people in St. Louis who feel the same way! The RMHC board met with the Red Shoe Society leadership council to solidify our goals for 2013, guiding us toward a vision for how we could help advance the RMHC mission. We hoped to raise $10,000 during the year, grow our group’s membership and promote awareness in the community. To plan and carry out our activities, we established four committees: Development, PR and Marketing, Social and Membership, and Service. We held fundraisers like a washers tournament, the Color Me Rad 5K run, and Wine and ‘Cue. We created our brand by designing

a logo and encouraging members to don red shoes and bowties for meetings and events. We hosted happy hours throughout the year where current and prospective members could network and socialize. We sponsored four dinner groups, inviting members to cook and serve dinner for families staying at one of the houses. By the year’s end, our group had grown to 60 committed, generous, and hard-working members who helped to raise more than $20,000 – more than doubling our financial goal. When developing our goals for 2014, we set the bar even higher – and will strive to surpass those again. We’re looking forward to our first gala event, a Kentucky Derby watch party at Bar Napoli in Clayton on May 3. Festive hats, seersucker and southern hospitality will fill the room as we celebrate the “most exciting two minutes in sports” while raising funds and awareness for RMHC! Although the Red Shoe Society is primarily for young professionals, we welcome all who share our passion for RMHC. If you are interested in attending our events, or if someone you know would like to join our group, please visit our page on the RMHC St. Louis web site: www.rmhcstl.com/redshoesociety. You can also like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for the latest news. As an enthusiastic sports fan, I draw great inspiration from the world of athletics. Legendary basketball coach John Wooden (one of my personal favorites) emphasized, “Winning takes talent; to repeat takes character.” In our first year, we demonstrated that we have the ability to achieve our goals. As we look to the future, we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to make a difference for the children and families we serve.

RONALD MCDONALD CARE MOBILE updates from our mobile vision clinic, a partnership with the eye care charity of mid-america

W

e launched the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a partnership between RMHC St. Louis and the Eye Care Charity of Mid-America, in March 2013. This is the first Ronald McDonald Care Mobile in the U.S. that is dedicated solely to eye care. Since its launch, this mobile eye care unit has hosted over 75 clinics at more than 57 different locations, serving over 1,100 children in and around St. Louis. Everywhere it goes, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is giving the gift of improved vision to children who need it most. Before visiting the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, six-yearold Kevin was struggling to remain focused at school. In September 2013, he received an examination

on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. The optometrist found that Kevin’s vision was extremely blurry and that he needed glasses. He later received two pairs of glasses, one to keep at his home and one that would remain at school. His clearer vision has improved Kevin’s performance at school and has enabled him to remain much more focused. He couldn’t be happier with his new glasses, always making sure to keep them close by. Thanks to the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, eight-year-old Marcus is now able to see more clearly, as well. Prior to his visit on the Care Mobile, he had completely lost his vision in his left eye. His inability to see out of his left eye caused him to have a difficult time reading, learning, and participating

in sports. However, after being fitted with a special pair of glasses that have restored some of the vision to his left eye, Marcus is now seeing much more clearly. “Wow, I can see!” he exclaimed as he left the Care Mobile, where not only was his vision restored, but his excitement, as well. We will continue to serve the St. Louis community thanks to an extremely dedicated staff, volunteers, and optometrists. Their continued support is bringing the gift of vision to underprivileged children who need it most, and we couldn’t be more grateful! For more information about the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, please visit www.eccoma.org or call 314-778-1023. Heartbeat • Spring/Summer 2014

small change, big difference rmhc st. louis launches “first fridays” at select mcdonald’s locations

W

hat is so special about the first Friday of every month? At six area McDonald’s restaurants, they offer a chance to donate your small change to make a big difference in the lives of seriously ill children. On the first Friday of every month, crew members at these restaurants wear special RMHC-themed T-shirts and encourage customers to donate spare coins in support of our organization. The money that is collected from these donation boxes, which can be found in most McDonald restaurants in the Metro area, will help provide a “home-away-from-home” for families of seriously ill children. Even if your local McDonald’s isn’t participating in First Fridays, you can still donate your spare change any day of the year! On average, the donations that RMHC receives from the containers inside McDonald’s restaurants and at the drive-thru windows account for 7% of RMHC St. Louis’ annual revenue. However, these donations have decreased as credit card transactions increase. Many thanks to the following six McDonald’s restaurants for their dedication and participation in the First Fridays program: • 101 Lamp & Lantern Vlg., Chesterfield, MO 63107 • #24 Harvester Sq., St. Charles, MO 63301 • 1150 Gannon Dr., Festus, MO 63028 • 708 N. State St., Freeburg, IL 62243 • 11111 Bellefontaine Rd., Spanish Lake, MO 63138 • 3635 Big Bend Blvd., Webster Groves, MO 63143 More locations will be added throughout the year. For more information, visit www.rmhcstl.com/mcdonalds.

2013 HEART & SOLE AWARD sharon and larry carrico awarded for commitment to rmhc mission

RMHC St. Louis Board President, Mike Murphy, presented Sharon and Larry Carrico with the Heart and Sole Award in December 2013. Sharon and Larry own three businesses: Rent One, RNR (Rent-N-Roll), and Imagery Marketing, all of which support the RMHC St. Louis mission. The Heart and Sole Award was created in 2005 to honor Coldwell Banker Gundaker in recognition of its more than 20year commitment to RMHC St. Louis. Each year, the nonprofit organization honors a new company that emulates Coldwell Banker Gundaker’s long-term commitment and generosity. “Receiving this award is a great honor,” says Larry. “Sharon and I, and our co-workers, are fortunate to be able to contribute but feel we always get back more than what we give, especially to the RMHC families – every time we walk into a House or Family Room, every time we hear a family’s story,

we are reminded that giving is always easier than receiving. RMHC is a great organization, giving immeasurable support to families at critical times in their lives. It’s a blessing to be able to be a part of their mission.” Larry and Sharon Carrico have been generous supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis since 2002, when they donated televisions to the eight long-term apartments adjacent to the Ronald McDonald House on West Pine Blvd. Since that time, all three of the Carricos’ companies have become involved in supporting the RMHC mission. Currently, they offer their employees an opportunity to support the organization through a Time, Talent and Treasure Program – making it easy for employees to volunteer or give monetarily through payroll deductions. To date, the three Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms have benefited from donations in excess of $200,000 from more than 1,200 employees in nine different states. RMHC St. Louis has also been the recipient of funds raised at the employees’ annual events, such as a “Day at the Diamond” or a golf tournament. In addition, the Carricos made a $100,000 pledge toward the construction of our third Ronald McDonald House, which was built in 2010, by matching all of their employees’ donations from the Time, Talent and Treasure Program, which is funded through their Foundation. “Sharon and Larry have been tremendous friends to Ronald McDonald House Charities for several years, and we are so very proud to recognize them with the 2013 Heart and Sole Award,” said RMHC St. Louis President Dan Harbaugh.

A FOND FAREWELL On January 21, 2014, close friends and colleagues of Rick Mauger gathered at the West County Ronald McDonald House to celebrate his retirement after 36 years with The Coca-Cola Company. Rick Mauger has been a tremendous friend to RMHC St. Louis over the years. He served as a member of the Board of Directors for six years, and has volunteered in countless other ways. In his retirement, Rick currently serves as an ambassador for our First Fridays program, a fundraiser with St. Louis-area McDonald’s restaurants. We were honored to host his retirement celebration at The House that Love Built, and we wish him all the best in his new endeavors!
