Kilimanjaro Consulting has recently embarked on a journey with Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia (RMHC), placing respect for others above all else.

If you’re not clued up, RMHC Australia was founded in 1974 with the objective of helping seriously ill children and their families across Australia. They offer a number of initiatives to provide a home away from home for those folks in need; including, but not limited to: Houses, Family Rooms, Family Retreats, Learning Programs and Care Mobile.  RMHC has 13 house chapters across QLD, NSW, TAS, WA, SA and VIC that work locally to run the programs and support families in need. In 2016 alone, RMHC supported 7.1 million ill children globally. In light of this we aim to give back to their outstanding efforts and alleviate some pressures they may be facing.

Kilimanjaro’s Involvement

Our extended co-operation with Ronald McDonald House began at our 10th Year Anniversary Gala Dinner, where we were lucky enough to have James Antrim speak on behalf of RMHC. He candidly did so last year to raise awareness of Ronald McDonald House Charities.

At that time as MYOB’ largest partner and the only Diamond status partner we have been privileged to choose one charity to which we could provide software and our services. The obvious choice had brought us excellent partnership between RMHC and Kilimanjaro.

MYOB Exo Running Smoothly in RMHC

Since 2016, Kilimanjaro has implemented and sustained MYOB Exo and Payroll to all chapter houses. We have gotten to know the teams at each location and are amazed at the work and support they provide to their local communities. The implementation process was a seamless tapestry for all houses and we were more than happy to guide them through their MYOB Exo and Payroll

journeys. In “Now” terms? We hosted an all-out Make-A-Meal Event for the Randwick House on Thursday, the 2nd of November, completed with the all-Australian proud tradition of an out-door Barbie!

Partnership Impact

We are honored to be part of this new initiative with RMHC and look forward to our ongoing relationship ahead. Beyond providing software support and guidance, Kilimanjaro will be getting involved with RMHC’s Corporate Partnerships scheme where we visit local Houses, participate in a range of activities and play a small part in helping the children. In this sense we are not only giving back to a loyal client, but giving back for the teensy bit of joy we hope to bring the families.
