Every year, McDonald’s Canada franchisees and crew across the country celebrate McHappy Day, an annual day of community giving in support of Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities.
McHappy Day continues to play a large role in providing Ronald McDonald House Newfoundland and Labrador with the funds needed to support our House and the families we serve. Since McHappy Day was first celebrated in 1977, McDonald’s Canada, its franchisees and generous guests, have contributed nearly $66 million for Ronald McDonald Houses and local Canadian children’s charities.
On McHappy Day, McDonald’s® donates $1 from every Big Mac® sandwich, Happy Meal® and Hot McCafé® beverage sold in its restaurants to Ronald McDonald Houses and other children’s charities across the country. Come out and support!
McHappy Day is also an opportunity to celebrate the giving that McDonald’s Owner/Operators and Restaurant teams provide all year to Ronald McDonald House, from 10 cent Happy Meal, coin box, volunteering and additional donations.
We look forward to seeing you at a local McDonald’s restaurant at next year’s event on May 2019 to help celebrate McHappy Day and Keeping Families Close!!
In 2019 McHAPPY DAY GUESTS RAISED OVER $103,000!
On Wednesday May 8th , McDonald’s restaurants, guests and local communities helped raise more than $103,000 in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC NL) Newfoundland and Labrador and other children’s charities. Funds raised on McHappy Day, a one-day fundraising event, will help the hundreds of families, supported by RMHC NL each year, stay together as their child receives medical treatment and care far from home.
“We are so awed and grateful by the support from McDonald’s customers and our local community on McHappy Day,” said Annette Godsell, Executive Director RMHC NL “Every dollar raised will help us keep families with a sick child close – close to one another and close to the care their child needs. This means that families staying with us can have a little bit of normalcy when they are going through a truly difficult time. We could not be there for our families without your support – thank you!”
