Our first-ever virtual International Event, ACN Connect 2020, was a huge success for not only our Independent Business Owners and Product Partners but especially for our global charity partner of 11 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
ACN Pacific is delighted to share that our collective effort during the ACN Connect 2020 Event raised $20,249 for Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Western Sydney (RMHC GWS)! We are so grateful to our Independent Business Owners who dug deep to support seriously ill and injured children and their families, and we are proud to have doubled the impact by matching their contributions dollar-for-dollar.
Despite the virtual format of the event, the fundraising drive was a great success which we put down to the charitable spirit in which ACN and our Independent Business Owners give back to the local community.
We shared a video of our earlier visit in September to RMHC GWS House in Westmead, proudly showcasing the positive impact of our combined contribution which has now reached over $500,000 in the past 11 years. It was heartening to hear that our Independent Business Owners found the video to be a special experience that enabled them to reflect on the everlasting difference we have made as an organisation and a community, simply by coming together each year – be that virtually, this year!
Over 2,000 families call RMHC their home away from home each year. RMHC is a place of hope, warmth and above all, provides a sense of normality for seriously ill and injured children and their families, whose lives have been turned upside down. ACN is proud to partner with a life-changing organisation like RMHC. We are more motivated than ever to continue to support RMHC in their mission to improve the quality of life for the families of seriously ill and injured children across Australia, during their most challenging times.
