On McHappy Day, one dollar from every Big Mac®, Happy Meal® and McCafe® beverage will be donated to Ronald McDonald House locations across Canada. When you donate $5, you will get a fun pair of McHappy Day Hero Socks! Here’s a photo of mine. Why are they called hero socks? Because when you purchase a Big Mac, Happy Meal, or McCafe beverage, you’re helping families in 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada be close to their loved ones as they go through terrifying treatments.
Were you ever sick when you were little? Even today when I get sick – all I want is my mom right there beside me, making me soup and keeping me brave! That’s what Ronald McDonald Houses do – they make sure children can have their loved ones beside them while they get better.
McHappy Day takes place on Wednesday, May 4 at participating McDonald’s® restaurants across Canada. Every year, McDonald’s gives you a chance to give back to the community by making a difference in the lives of Canadian families and children. By supporting McHappy Day, yyou’re supporting hundreds of local children’s charities. You’re also helping over 20,000 Canadian families that use the 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the country every year.
When families stay together, kids heal better!
McHappy Day Helps Out Families In Need
McHappy Day is McDonald’s biggest fundraising event every year where $1 from every Big Mac® sandwich, Happy Meal® and McCafé® beverage goes to 14 Ronald McDonald Houses® and various children’s charities.
This year, you also have the option of adding a $1 donation when you use the self-order kiosks when playing your orders. This ensures more families and children in the local communities benefit from McHappy Day.
All donations raised on McHappy Day supports the 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada that provide temporary housing for out-of-town families whose children are being treated at a nearby hospital. Your $1 donation helps support over 20,000 families who need the accommodation while their child undergoes treatment.
