    ABOUT THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITY


    The mission of RMHC® of Greater Las Vegas is to provide a supportive “home-away-from-home” for families and children who are receiving inpatient or outpatient medical treatment at local hospitals. Without our House, families might have to sleep in the hospital lobby, a child’s hospital room or even in their cars, as most families cannot afford a hotel room for weeks or sometimes months – especially under the financial stress of mounting medical bills.

    Families are stronger when they are together and their presence helps a sick child cope better. Research even proves that while we cannot make medicine taste better or take away painful treatment, we can help lessen the burden and ensure families have the stability and resources to support their child’s recovery.

    Learn more about The Ronald McDonald House of Las Vegas.

    Watch what RMH means to families.

    The founder of what is now a large manufacturer and who was an influential personality in his time was ready to depart our industry early; he wasn't making any money, and wanted to do something differetn.

    But at what was supposed to be his last trade show, he was threatened and publicly humiliated by someone who was, at the time, the "big dog" in the business.

    His desire to Avenge that behavior made him redouble his efforts, and he created a business that has profoundly influenced our industry beyond his wildest dreams.

    The "big dog"? All but forgotten. If I revealed the name, 99% of you wouldn't know who he was.

    So it seems to be with you Mike.

    I doubt that either Kessler or even you would have envisioned what would come as a result of him exiling you into the land of Nod.

    In my opinion at the time, yes he did.

    But I didn't like Mikey or Kessler back then, so to me it was like me watching the Patriots and the Ravens in a playoff game.

    And Jimmy, I remember many of the kind and uplifting comments you made on the ICS board.

    I'm sure Mr Kessler remembers you fondly.

    Kessler was the editor of ICS magazine.

    I thought he did a good job for the industry.

    He told me, he got mad at Mike for comments putting down IICRC on the ICS bulletin board.

    Finally, he banned Mike, which led to this board.

    First, let's remember the start of this post:

    The person formerly known as "Bad Mikey" is now doing something great for others. I'm not sure how Mr Kessler would absorb that, but it's fair to bring up.

    It would be interesting to see how many of the regulars here were once banned from ICS.

    Not hardly Jimmy.

    I've not ever done much for charity myself, so I respect it and give the credit where due when someone does. I had a time I thought I'd lose my youngest daughter just a few years back, and I've learned to have a great deal of empathy for families that have a child with life threatening illnesses.

    So the RMHC program is pretty meaningful to me.

    And Mike was pretty damn supportive of me through those days too....so his friendship with me is well earned.

    The being the Sierra Pine Cone Club Poohbah and hauling trash off his trails wasn't enough
