Wednesday, May 8 – McHappy Day – was an outstanding success for our local McDonald’s Restaurants. Thanks to the participation from the communities of Perth, Smiths Falls, Kemptville and Carleton Place, more than $44,440 was raised for the Ottawa Ronald McDonald House, and the two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® located at CHEO.
On McHappy Day, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants participated in the national fundraising initiative by donating $1 for every Big Mac, Happy Meal and Hot McCafe Beverage sold. This, along with each community’s generous support, will in turn will help over 26,000 Canadian families every year stay at Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada while their children are being treated at nearby hospitals.
All of that adds up to a lot of good reasons to be McHappy for a lot of young people!
