Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama for June 27, 2013:
JEH JEH - Jeh Jeh joined us from the Ronald McDonald House this morning. The U.S. Treasury estimates that we have $1.5 billion in loose change sitting around our homes and cars. On Monday (July 1st) the Ronald McDonald House Chapters across the country are asking families to donate that extra change to help keep millions of children together with their families. RMHC's Day of Change raises awareness for RMHC Donation Boxes located on McDonald's counters and in drive-thru's. These boxes allow customers like you to support programs which help provide access to quality health care. Last year alone, the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters donated in RMHC Donation Boxes in North and Central Alabama totaled over $180,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama - a goal the Charity hopes to exceed this year. In fact, if every McDonald's customer put a penny in the Donation Box, RMHC would raise more than $94 million to support children and their families in the U.S. For 39 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities®(RMHC®) has been providing stability and resources to families through its core programs so they can get and keep their children healthy and happy.

Now, Atlantis is back at its permanent home - Florida's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
