What is McHappy Day?

Every year, McDonald’s® Canada franchisees and Crew across the country host McHappy Day, an annual day of community giving to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and other local children’s charities across Canada.

Who are you helping on McHappy Day?

In an average year, RMHC® supports more than 26,000 families from over 3,400 communities across Canada. Through 33 programs (16 Houses and 17 Family Rooms), across the country, we provide families with a place to stay together and close to their sick child in hospital. Since the first House opened in Toronto in 1981, RMHC Canada has helped over 436,000 families with sick children stay together.

How to support RMHC on McHappy Day

1. Order your faves on May 11 at McDonald’s or through the McDonald’s app. Can’t make it to a restaurant? Order McDelivery via Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes or DoorDash and receive a $0 delivery fee on a McDonald’s order of $15 (plus tax) or more!

3. For a limited time, purchase exclusive merch from Peace Collective.

4. Donate $2 at McDonald's and you’ll receive a McHappy Day heart* with a special video message.

5. Buy a pair of McHappy Day socks* for $5+ tax at McDonald's or though the McDonald's app.

Your support on McHappy Day helps families like the Thomsons, who have stayed at RMHC in Toronto, Saskatchewan and Alberta for over 700 nights.

With your support, we can help even more families when they need it most.
