This year marks the 25th McHappy Day in the history of McDonald’s® Canada. It is the company’s longest-running and best-known national fundraising event with more than 1400 McDonald’s restaurants celebrating McHappy Day this year. Since its inception, the event has raised more than $66 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities® Canada, the Ronald McDonald Houses and hundreds of other local children’s charities.
McHappy Day is a very special day at McDonald’s, as it is part of an exciting effort to raise funds in support of Canadian children in need.
This year, on May 2nd one dollar from every Big Mac sandwich, Happy Meal and any Hot McCafe Beverage including coffee (or tea) sold from the McDonald’s Restaurant located in Peterborough and Lakefield will be donated to YES Shelter for Youth and Families.
