                   Mollika Goold is one of those people you feel instantly at ease with. Her joyful
                   personality is contagious, and she has a way about her that could make anyone
                   smile. Mollika has been coming to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware
                   from her home in Colorado since May 2010. She has traveled the 1750 mile trip
                   to the House several times and has made many friends at the House in the last
                   few months. She is a source of support for a lot of other parents going through
                   the same stress of doctors’ visits and constant worry.
                                                                                                            For Volunteer
                   At the same time, Mollika has found that the House is a great source of support          Information, Call:
                   for her as well. She explains, “It’s a ‘home away from home’, just a lot more            302 656 HUGS
                   people. You feel like you belong, like it’s a place you can let go of your worries
                   and see how other families deal with their challenges. You see what they are
                   going through and you can tell them your story and just hope for a few minutes
                   you can breathe and smile.”

                   During her time at the House Mollika’s son, Nathaniel, has undergone brain

                                   was given to him by a friend and they both seem to think it’s
                                    pretty funny. Mollika jokes, “He may not be able to win a sports        The Ronald McDonald
                                      trophy at the moment, but he can win this”. Nathaniel, like           Family Room® at Christiana

                                                  “seeing other kids with challenges has inspired           The Ronald McDonald

                                             together. It is obvious by watching them that the
                                              parents serve as a source of comfort for one another.
                                              The bonds that families make often last a lifetime.

                                                When asked what advice she had for other parents
                                               Mollika said, “they’re not alone; there are moms,
                                               dads, aunts, uncles, that deal with this on a daily basis.
                                              It may not be easy, but you learn how to deal with it.
                                               The fact that you have the Ronald McDonald House,
                                                and a place to pray with each other, it makes the day
                                                a little easier.”

Not All Art Is Found in a Museum
On Saturday, September 25, 2010, two hundred children gathered at the Ronald McDonald
House of Delaware for a tile painting party. This fundraiser was sponsored by Nordstrom
which plans to open their Christiana Mall store in April 2011. The “bug-themed” tiles will
be installed in the Kids’ Wear floor of their store. The cost per child was $25 and Nordstrom
matched the collected amount and all the proceeds from the tile painting effort were donated
to the House.
Charles Bigger, a professional sculptor from the greater Seattle area, helped facilitate the event
and assisted the children which ranged in ages between 5 and 12 in creating their masterpieces.
When the kids were not painting their tiles, they munched on special bug-prepared treats
provided by Feastivities Catering and drank bug juice. “As You Wish” Face Painting by Catey
Hill provided the children with face designs and temporary tattoos. Peg Broadwater twisted
balloons into ladybugs, butterfly wings, spiders and other bug like creatures. Ronald McDonald
was on hand in the afternoon to entertain and encourage the painters.
A very special thanks to Nordstrom for selecting the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware
for their project and to Lisa Imperato from Nordstrom for coordinating this event. The young
painters will be invited to a special grand unveiling and “find your tile” party in the store prior
to their grand opening.

her estate gifts. As a mother of five grown children with children of their own, Jackie has
identified the House as her primary beneficiary. Jackie and her husband were blessed with
five healthy children. They never had to face the challenges that families who stay at the
House do – as Jackie is a witness to this everyday. Jackie has given her time and talent to
the House for over 7 years. When she decided to include the House in her will she knew
it was the right decision for her and her family. Jackie recently received one of the highest
