Sharing is Caring: eSmiles, HP, and Ronald McDonald House Charities

I'm feeling the Mommy pride in a big way. Pickle and SugarPlum participated in their VERY FIRST volunteer event. It was a great success, in my opinion, and after hearing Pickle say he wanted to go back and volunteer again, it's obvious that he feels the same way.

We were so lucky to be invited to San Diego's own Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), showcasing a wonderful campaign initiated by HP, and launched on Feb. 14, 2012.

If you haven't heard of an eSmile, then you are missing out on a great opportunity to bring joy to the families whose children are receiving care at one of many local hospitals. Additionally, THIS WEEK is the last week of a fundraising event, where you can send ONE eSmile PER DAY, and HP will donate $1 to participating Ronald McDonald Houses! April 15th is the last day to help in these fundraising efforts, so PLEASE SHARE this information with everyone you know, and help RMHC raise the money needed to continue providing a welcoming home away from home for these deserving families! Each location is eligible to earn up to $10,000!

Your eSmile can be anything from a cute joke to a personalized photo, "Get Well" letters or cards, your favorite cartoons, or even original artwork. Remember to keep it family-friendly, and avoid sending anything of an inappropriate nature, keeping in mind that these families are going through a very difficult time, and appreciate a reason to smile.

Each eSmile is sent to an HP ePrint-enabled printer, similar to the manner in which an email is sent, where it is printed out at your chosen RMHC location. Due to this virtual capability, anyone in the world can use their web-enabled device or computer to send an eSmile.

Below, HP has provided a simple outline for how to participate.
