On the first Wednesday of every May, McDonald’s restaurants across Canada come together with their communities to support local children’s charities. This one-day fundraising event also supports the 15 Ronald McDonald Houses and 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across Canada that help over 30,000 families stay together as their children are being treated at a nearby hospital. First established in 1977, McHappy Day is a long-standing Canadian tradition and is at the heart of who we are and what we do at McDonald’s Canada.
Join us on Wednesday, May 2nd
On McHappy Day, $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé beverage is donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities® and other local children’s charities across Canada.
In 2017, this single day raised over $225,000 in support of our two Houses!
We celebrate our favourite day of the year by visiting restaurants to thank McDonald’s crew members, visit with customers, and help out in all aspects of restaurant operations, from customer service to fundraising activities.
Stop in at any McDonald’s in Southern and Central Alberta to make a difference!
