The Amarillo Ronald McDonald House will be hosting a virtual “Whip it up give a dollar” crowdfunding challenge benefitting area families traveling to Amarillo for their children to receive medical care. The organization is calling on area residents to record short videos on Facebook voicing their support for the families that call RMHC their home away from home, before spraying a stream of whipped cream into their face on camera. Participants are then asked to invite two to three other friends to join the challenge.

The completion of our new House is just weeks away, and our goal is to raise $10,000 to help cover the lodging costs for the first 117 nights of stays to celebrate the grand opening, and help keep MORE families together! You can help make that happen by joining our 'Whip It Up For RMHC...Just Give a Dollar" Challenge taking place now until December 1st!

Here are the details:

  1. Record a short video and tag us on Facebook @rmhcamarillo, saying you support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Amarillo and keeping families together, and spray yourself in the face with whipped cream or shaving cream during your clip!
    2. At the end of your video, challenge 2 or 3 friends to “Whip it up for RMHC!”
    3. Anyone who refuses the challenge is asked to donate as little as $1 to help our cause. We want to get a lot of people giving a little to help back the House!
    4. Everyone who participates will automatically be put in a drawing for a $50 Amazon card, from an anonymous donor, so let’s all make this thing go viral!
