Jeffrey Janis works for Ronald McDonald House, and Ronald McDonald House works for the health of children with life threatening diseases by providing housing for families with children in treatment for the duration of that treatment and beyond. It is no surprise that Jeffrey is moved by seeing other lives strengthened, no surprise that he is drawn to the world of philanthropic organizations. As a child, he never cared about the candy, but did love Trick or Treat night for getting people to put money in the UNICEF cans. At the age of 44 he joined the peace corp and moved to the Ukraine where he became forever part of a family. Recently he found a Ukrainian branch of his American family tree. Listen to him talk about Ronald McDonald House and the miracles it enables, about his American family, his Ukrainian family with whom he learned to speak Russian, and his recollection of significant historical memories.
Hearing about his planned love letter is to look into the heart of a man whose calling in life is helping others. Fascinating and pure joy!
