Wednesday October 7th will be McDonald’s Canada’s FIRST annual #DayOfChange.
On this special day, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is asking Canadians to visit their local McDonald’s restaurant and give their spare change in coin boxes located near the cash registers and the drive thru. All funds donated will benefit Ronald McDonald Houses across Quebec and Canada.
If you have ever needed or know about Ronald McDonald House, then the mere mention of it tugs at your heartstrings.
If you’re not entirely sure what Ronald McDonald Houses do: They provide a home for out of town families with sick children being treated at a nearby hospital.
Watch this tear-jerking video to get a taste of how they have helped:
Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada was founded in 1982 to be the everlasting organization that would support Ronald McDonald Houses and their programs in Canada.
There are 14 Ronald McDonald Houses is Canada, including two Ronald McDonald Houses in Quebec, one in Montreal and one in Quebec City. In 2013, Ronald McDonald Houses in Montreal and Quebec City served 3,030 families.
This WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7 – Stop by your local McDonald’s for a coffee, a snack or a meal, and be sure to effect change by dropping some change into the coin collection box at the counter. #DayOfChange – Be a part of it.
Wishing you a day where you can make an impact…a #DayOfChange 🙂
