OUR FOUNDING & FOREVER PARTNER
Our longstanding relationship with McDonald’s® Canada has existed since RMHC Canada was founded in 1982. Their unwavering support helps keep families with sick children together.
Since the 10 cent Happy Meal® program was launched in 2004, McDonald’s Canada has raised over $50 million for Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. In addition to Happy Meal sales, Houses have received over $45 million from yearly McHappy Day celebrations. Every May, $1 from the sale of every Big Mac®, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé® beverage is donated to RMHC Canada. In addition, we have benefitted from the 2018 menu launch of the RMHC heart-shaped cookie in McDonald’s restaurants, as well as the introduction of round-up donations at kiosks in restaurants across the country (which serve to supplement coin box donations).
McDonald’s Owner/Operators are dedicated supporters of our Mission. They help provide much-needed funds and volunteer support, and they help raise awareness for the work that we do.
OUR NATIONAL PARTNERS
Our heartfelt thanks also goes out to each of our national partners. We could not do the work that we do without them.
