To celebrate the 28th McHappy Day on Wednesday, May 11, participating McDonald’s restaurants in Canada are donating a portion of all food and beverage proceeds to support local Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and other local children’s charities.
Canadians can look good while doing good with the limited-edition collection of t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and more, featuring iconic McDonaldland characters for the first time ever. With a portion of the proceeds from each sale of the collection going to support the RMHC and families with sick children across Canada, this nostalgic collection is available for purchase until May 11 while supplies last on peace -collective.com/collections/mcdonalds
Customers can purchase food at the restaurant, drive-thru, through the McDonald’s app, and have it delivered through Uber Eats, SkipTheDishes, and DoorDash.
In the weeks leading up to McHappy Day, McDonald’s customers can donate $2 to receive a McHappy Day Heart, while supplies last, which will come with a surprise thank you video from a variety of celebrities, athletes or Canadian families who have stayed at the RMHC.
Can’t make it to McHappy Day? Customers can round up their payment for RMHC on any order at participating restaurants or visit rmhc.ca for more ways to support.
Music has long been important to OMRM to help promote well-being and happiness during difficult times, with some local houses even offering music therapy programs with certified music therapists.

To do this, McDonald’s Canada is teaming up with DJs from across the country to curate their own mixes of upbeat music, which will be played live every day in May until McHappy Day. The whole country will be able to get in the mood and listen to their favorite DJ mixes anytime, anywhere on McDonald’s Canada Spotify.
