Give a Hand

A Little Help Goes a Long Way Changing Children’s Lives Around the World.

McHappy Day continues to be McDonald's signature fundraiser benefiting RMHC and other children’s causes around the world.

This fundraiser is just one more way McDonald’s, its employees, owner/operators, suppliers, and customers demonstrate how small contributions can add up to make a huge difference in the lives of children. Since 2002, countries around the world have raised more than $170 million during McHappy Day® events.

On November 10, McDonald’s celebrated McHappy Day in the U.S., an important day that calls attention to the needs of children and is the official kick-off of the 10th annual “Give A Hand” fundraiser to benefit RMHC the company’s “Charity of Choice” for 38 years.

The fundraiser was in participating U.S. restaurants November 10 – 20, and allowed customers to show their support for the Charity by purchasing a paper Hand for $1, $3, or $5. All proceeds from the paper Hand sales were donated to RMHC. And, with every purchase of a McDonald's Happy Meal® or Mighty Kids Meal® throughout the year, a donation is made to RMHC. These fundraisers are a few ways McDonald’s encourages customers to give back and help bring happiness to families in need.

In addition to the in-restaurant fundraising program, customers could also show their support for RMHC by participating in the “Give A Hand” online sweepstakes. Customers were invited to write messages of support for RMHC on their hand, take a picture, and submit it online via @McDonalds Twitter page for the chance to help RMHC and win prizes. Each day throughout the campaign, one winner was selected at random to receive a $50 Arch Card for themselves and a $500 donation for their local RMHC or Ronald McDonald House Chapter. More information on the sweepstakes can be found at http://bit.ly/mcdgah.
