On Wednesday, May 8th, McDonald’s invites Canadians to unite as neighbours on McHAPPY DAY to support local families when they need it most.
On McHappy Day, a small purchase makes a big difference in the lives of thousands of families with a sick child. $1 from every Big Mac sandwich, Happy Meal, and hot McCafe beverage sold in McDonald’s restaurants will go to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada (RMHC Canada) and local children’s charities across Canada.
This year, we partnered with homegrown Canadian brand, Peace Collective, as exclusive designers of the McHappy Day x Peace Collective collection. Guests can contribute to McHappy Day by purchasing the swag in-restaurant on May 8th.
All proceeds from the McHappy Day x Peace Collective collection will go to Ronald McDonald House and children’s charities nationwide. The 15 Ronald McDonald Houses and 16 Family Rooms in Canada give families a place to stay together when they have to travel for their sick child’s treatment.
Visit any of the 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants from coast-to-coast on May 8th to give back to your community and help make a difference in the lives of the tens of thousands of families and children across Canada.
This year, we’re asking Canadians across the country to make the McHappy Day pledge. We want you and your team to make a public pledge via your social channels to personally purchase one of the McHappy Day menu items, or by pledging to purchase a McHappy Day menu item for your family, friends, colleagues. Whether it’s buying coffee for your office in support of RMHC, or treating yourself to a Big Mac or a Happy Meal in-restaurant, every pledge can inspire other to help families stay together while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital.
Share your team’s #McHappyDay Pledge in the lead up to May 8th using #mypledge hashtag.
