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 $28,650 was raised for the Ottawa Ronald McDonald House, and the two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® located at CHEO. Our Kemptville location raised $5,602! Thank You Perth, Smiths Falls, Kemptville and Carleton Place.
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 McCafe Beverage and hot drink sold. This, along with each community’s generous support, will in turn help over 30,000 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!
