Wednesday May 8 is McHappy Day - Buy your favourites to help families

Just want to spread the message on this platform..


Every year, McDonald’s® Canada franchisees and crew across the country celebrate McHappy Day, an annual day of community giving in support of Ronald McDonald Houses and other local children’s charities.

On Wednesday May 8, for every Big Mac®, Happy Meal® or hot McCafé® beverage purchased, $1 will be donated to RMHC® and children’s charities across Canada.

While I appreciate supporting families, I'm not sure how this is a hot deal if I'm paying regular price?

Am I missing something?

People down voting this are idiots.
The hot deal is you are helping families in need... Like anything, if you don't like it just hide the thread.

Wouldn't it be more helpful to give the ENTIRE amount directly to an organization that services those in need rather than give your money to McDonald's Corp. so they can donate $1 and use the donation as a tax write off?

Great cause, but not a hot deal. Wrong forum, there are other sections of the site where this post would be more appropriate.

If this is acceptable where do we draw the line? Is everyone going to be allowed to start posting charity causes in hot deals?

Well, you would have to give up McDs in order to do that.

It seems that people who don't agree with you are "idiots". Nice logic. /s

What high horse? Saying people can donate to a charity if they don't think the amount Mcdonalds is giving is enough...

What does giving up Mcdonalds and donating to a charity have anything to do with each other... If you are planning on grabbing fast food on Wednesday get something from Mcdonalds. You can still go write a cheque to any charity you want :facepalm:

With this logic, we should just clump every single thread together in one single forum and just hide the posts we don't like. I understand this is for a good cause but this is a deals forum.

If you really cared about charity, the best way to make a maximum impact would be to skip McD's and donate the full amount to a charity. A Big Mac costs $5.99 and they donate $1 to Ronald McDonald House. If you bring a lunch on Wednesday and donate the full $5.99 to charity, you make a bigger impact.

You really should brush up basic economics. Neutral Face
