Oct 7th is McDonald’s Day of Change. The Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada is inviting Canadians to help the families of sick children, by simply putting their spare change into the coin boxes at their local McDonald’s.


Every year the 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada support 20,000 families, providing a home for the families while their child is in a nearby hospital being treated.

And this year marks the 35th anniversary since the first house was opened in Canada. Over 290,000 children and their families have been supported by a Ronald MacDonald house these past 35 years.
