This year McDonald’s Australia celebrates a milestone – the 20th anniversary of McHappy Day in Australia and I am honoured to be the Queensland ambassador for this great cause. Mc Happy Day is the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and one of Australia’s longest running national campaigns.
On Saturday 12th November, McHappy Day aims to crack the $3 million fundraising target for RMHC. Australia’s 13 Ronald McDonald Houses have provided more than 60,000 families with a home away from home while their child has undergone treatment for serious illness at a nearby hospital. Sadly, every year some families also have to be turned away due to a shortage of facilities, so McHappy Day needs the support of Australians across the country to reach our biggest ever fundraising target and help even more families with seriously ill children.
You can help support this charity by simply dropping in to your local McDonald’s restaurant on November 12th. McDonald’s will donate $2 from every Big Mac which will go directly to funding RMHC programs.
So please get behind this great cause and call into McDonald’s on the 12th and buy yourself a Big Mac or two.
Here are some pictures of me visiting the Ronald McDonald House in Herston, Brisbane and the Milton McDonalds store in my local neighbourhood.
Thanks for the fun day.
