You gave back, and it shows … big time!
We’d like to thank our entire LIMU + ARIIX family as well as each and every one of the generous contributors who helped us raise over $66,000 this #GivingTuesday to support the 2,700 families of critically ill children who turn to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida each year—that’s $16,000 more than our initial goal, and $11,000 more than we raised in 2018!
Because of YOU, we raised over 💲6️⃣6️⃣,0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ on #GivingTuesday for the 2,700 children and families that turn to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida (@RMHCCF) each year.— LIMU® (@LIMU) December 4, 2019
Thanks to everyone who contributed for making this our most successful year yet!

3-time Olympic gold medalist, International Swimming Hall of Fame member and LIMU Brand Ambassador, Rowdy Gaines, spent the day serving lunch and visiting with some the families currently staying at the Ronald McDonald House on the campus of Arnold Palmer Medical Center in Orlando. He also joined ESPN’s live radio broadcast to talk about our LIMU Gives charitable initiative and over 10-year partnership with RMHCCF, while encouraging listeners to share their blessings by donating in honor of Giving Tuesday.
When a child is receiving treatment at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Nemours Children’s Hospital or Florida Hospital for Children, their family members are left to figure out how they’re going to afford the unexpected financial burden that comes with being away from home for an extended period of time. Whether they’re in need of a place to stay for one day, one week, one month, or even one year, they can turn to Ronald McDonald House Charities to provide a helping hand and home-away-from-home during an extremely stressful time in their lives.
From cozy bedrooms to fun playrooms and fresh meals to personal care items, everything is taken care of and made possible because of selfless donors and friendly staff members. It is truly a life-giving organization that we are beyond proud to be associated with.
Although #GivingTuesday may be over, there are still plenty of ways to be a blessing to others and give back during the holiday season! Consider making a donation to one of our incredible LIMU Gives partners, who are doing truly life-changing work throughout our community and beyond.
