My name is Lyndsey Howell and my husband Chris and I own and run our own company Motion
Energy. Along with working we have twin six-year- old boys, Carter and Carson. My husband is
a former board member of the Ronald McDonald house and so before children we spent quite a
bit of time volunteering here. It wasn’t until our sons were born that we realized the full
magnitude of how much the Ronald McDonald house means to the community that it services.
One of our babies was born with an intestinal birth defect and had to spend 8 weeks in the
NICU at UMC. Most of our time during that eight weeks was spent running back and forth
between our newborn at home and our newborn in the hospital. The Ronald McDonald house
family room gave my family not just a place to decompress and collect our thoughts, but a place
with other families going through the same situations to serve as a community. If it wasn’t for
the Ronald McDonald house family room I am not sure how we would have made it through
such a tough situation. Please join me in helping raise money for such a close place to my
heart. This charity allows families to be close when it as absolutely needed the most.
