TORONTO — On Sept. 22, 2021, McDonald’s Canada is donating a portion of the proceeds from every menu item in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and other local children’s charities in celebration of its 27th McHappy Day.
In the weeks leading up to the fundraiser, customers can purchase McHappy Day Digital Hearts in-restaurant for a two-dollar donation that comes with a digital thank you video from a Canadian athlete, celebrity or RMHC family.
“We’re excited to welcome back McHappy Day this year and ecstatic about offering our guests more ways to support than ever before,” says Jacque Mignault, president and CEO, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada. “Family and community are at the heart of McDonald’s core values and McHappy Day allows us to continue our coast-to-coast support for RMHC, as every purchase on McHappy Day directly supports Canadian families in need.”
“The impact and support from coast-to-coast on McHappy Day is truly remarkable. From McDonald’s franchisees, to crew members and guests – we’re so grateful to our communities that rally together to support RMHC in our mission to keep families together and close to the healthcare their sick child needs,” says Cathy Loblaw, CEO, RMHC Canada. “We can’t stop until all families in need can receive the comfort and care of RMHC – annually thousands of families never make it off our waitlists. Together with the generous support of Canadians on McHappy Day, we can help even more families during their most challenging time.”
