Today we celebrate McDonald’s 28th annual McHappy Day, the company’s largest charitable initiative supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and other local children’s charities. On May 11th, head over to your local McDonald’s for a meal, snack, or coffee as every purchase made will be donated to the RMHC and other local charities.

The Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) is a non-profit organization that funds and supports programs that can directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. RMHC has three core programs that facilitate family care: the Ronald McDonald House, the Ronald McDonald Family Room, and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.

There are so many ways you can support the RMHC and McHappy Day. You can buy your favourite item at any local chain or on online delivery service. You can make a $2 donation with your purchase and receive a McHappy Day Heart. You can also purchase any of the limited-edition McDonald’s Canada x Peace Collective t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other merchandise with a portion of proceeds from every sale going to the RMHC and supporting families with sick children across the country.

If you can’t make it over to the golden arches today, don’t worry, all year long with every purchase at McDonald’s you can “Round Up for RMHC.”  In 2020, RMHC provided about 1.5 million dollars for overnight stays in Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room programs, saving families more than $440 million in meals and housing costs.

Another awesome way to show support for the RMHC is by listening to and sharing the brand new McHappy Day Mixes on the McDonald’s Canada Spotify. Using the power of music to connect one another, McDonald’s Canada has created a playlist featuring some of the best DJs in Canada to bring some of the happiest mixes from coast to coast.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities are more than just a place to sleep and eat. They support over 1.4 million families, in making it possible to get the medical care and treatment they require, while being able to stay together as a family during stressful and difficult times.
