All across the country Ronald McDonald Houses are set up helping families with a place to sleep, eat and be close to their children during some of the most difficult moments in their lives. HP has raised over $120,000 for participating Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and the Netherlands. The program will help drive further awareness and support for participating Ronald McDonald Houses – globally and in their local communities. And now, HP has set up the eSmiles program right here in the United States at several Ronald McDonald House locations.
What is an eSmile?
An HP eSmile is a message of hope and support sent through HP ePrint technology to the families and children finding strength at participating Ronald McDonald Houses. eSmiles can be “get well” letters, photos, jokes,cartoons, or drawings and sketches that will help make the children and their families smile. An eSmile message is sent the same way as an email directly to the HP ePrint-enabled printer and delivered as a printed page or photo.
How eSmiles Works
- Visit http://bit.ly/HfnqsG and choose the Ronald McDonald House location you wish to support.
- Upload your eSmile photo or write an inspirational message. The eSmile you send will be emailed directly to the Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One located within the House at the location you have chosen; HP has donated a printer to each house.
- The eSmile will then be printed and hung on a wall within the house for all to see.
For every approved eSmile, HP donates $1 to the selected Ronald McDonald House (up to $10,000 per location) now through April 15, 2012. The participating houses include New York City, San Diego, Orange County, Atlanta, and Chicago.
Would you like to send an eSmile? We sure hope so because I know there are days when life feels very overwhelming and all I need to brighten my day is my own little message of hope. It could be the way my daughter smiles at me, a few encouraging words from a friend and for many families, it’s the wall of eSmiles at their Ronald McDonald House.
HP would like to offer one lucky reader an HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One Printer so you can have easy to print photos at your fingertips.
