McHappy Day Raises Record-Breaking $8.9 Million

TORONTO — This year’s McHappy Day efforts raised more than $8.9 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada (RMHC Canada) and other local children’s charities in Canada. Since the first event in Canada in 1977, McHappy Day has officially surpassed $100 million.

“We’re overwhelmed by the incredible support we received during McHappy Day this year,” says Michèle Boudria, president and CEO, McDonald’s Canada. “McHappy Day has a profound impact on families and children across Canada and would not be possible without the generosity of our guests, crew and franchisees who make this day so special.”

The funds raised on McHappy Day go towards providing essential services, supporting families staying at RMHC houses and family rooms across Canada, including accommodations, food programming, mental health and wellness support and more.

“RMHC is an essential pillar of support for families with sick children across Canada, with programs and services that provide a sense of community, remove barriers, strengthen families and promote healing when children need healthcare, far from home,” says Kate Horton, president and CEO at RMHC Canada. “And with four out of five families unable to access support due to lack of space, RMHC has never been more needed than it is today. Thanks to the generous support of McDonald’s Canada, restaurant teams, and guests on McHappy Day and every day, RMHC can continue caring for families across Canada so they can focus on what matters most – their sick child.”
