Mc Happy Day History

McHappy Day seeks to raise crucial funds and awareness for children's charities across Canada, with a particular focus on Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). The event consists of fundraising initiatives and community engagement activities, providing customers and local communities the opportunity to contribute to a meaningful cause. Since its inception, McHappy Day has raised millions of dollars for children's charities, benefiting numerous families and children facing illness or other challenges.

The tradition of McHappy Day began in 1977, as a single fundraising event in memory of McDonald's creator Ray Kroc. Since then, it has evolved into a large-scale nationwide event, with all McDonald's restaurants in the country participating. Throughout the years, McHappy Day has become a symbol of hope and support for Canadian families. In recognition of its impact, the event has garnered praise and participation from an array of Canadian celebrities, athletes, and public figures.

On McHappy Day, Canadians can contribute to the cause in various ways, such as purchasing select McDonald's products, making a donation at the counter or drive-thru, or engaging with McDonald's social media campaigns. Proceeds from these initiatives directly support the 15 Ronald McDonald Houses and 17 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across Canada, as well as numerous other local children's charities. McHappy Day is typically observed on the first Wednesday of May, although dates may vary by location.
