For the last 32 years, Ronald McDonald House has opened its doors with open arms to sick children.  The House provides an avenue for these children to have what they need most during their illness or injury…their family.

Travel costs can be expensive and hospitals can be dreary, but this is an opportunity for the patients to feel at ease and comfortable with their loved ones close by.

McDonald’s, a proud supporter of the Olympic movement, is celebrating their 20th anniversary of McHappy Day.  You can contribute as one dollar from every Big Mac, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé beverage you buy will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities across Canada.
