Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 is McHappy Day; Restaurant employees across Canada will be joined by local sports and media personalities, politicians, community leaders, and entertainers celebrating the 19th annual McHappy Day.
On this day, one dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal, Coffee & Tea sold goes to local children’s charities across the country such as Ronald McDonald House in support of children and their families in need.
Ronald McDonald House provides support and the much needed comfort of a home-away-from-home for out-of-town families with seriously ill children who are being treated at nearby children’s hospitals. They are truly a blessing for sick kids and their families and offer a place of peace and calm in a time of great distress.
McDonald’s Canada covers all of RMHC Canada’s administrative and operating costs, making it possible for 100 per cent of every directly donated dollar to go to Ronald McDonald Houses and their programs. Since the annual fundraiser began, McHappy Day has raised more than $32-million for children. Do you know that Ronald McDonald Charities help over 10,000 families a year?

So on May 2, 2012, join me in supporting a great cause, please drop into your local McDonald’s and support McHappy Day. If you can’t make it, you can still support by texting MCHAPPY to 30333 to make a $5 donation* to RMHC of Canada and by “Liking” McDonald’s Canada on Facebook

I may be gluten free, but I can still have a coffee and support McHappy Day!
