For every Happy Meal, Big Mac or hot McCafe beverage sold on May 8th, McDonald's will donate $1 to Ronald McDonald houses and other local childrens' charities across Canada.
Last year's McHappy Day raised over $8,000,000. This year marks the 20th anniversary of McHappy Day in Canada, and McDonald's is hoping to make this one the biggest and best yet.
As I wrote about for last year's McHappy Day, I am happy to support this event which provides important funds to help so many families in need. I encourage everyone to stop by their local McDonald's tomorrow. Whether you stop by for a morning McCafe beverage or you take your family out for dinner, you will be helping to raise money for a great cause.

Disclosure: McDonald's has asked me to help spread the word about this year's McHappy Day, which I am happy to do. A donation in my name will be made to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada in exchange for my involvement. All opinions expressed are my own.
