There's nothing better than the feeling of a warm burger hitting your lips and let's not forget the delicious taste of crispy french fries. It's safe to say that you can never go wrong at McDonald's. Everything on their menu is absolutely amazing but on May 3rd, there are a couple of specific items that you're going to want to order.
Exactly a week from now, McDonald's will be hosting McHappy Day, which is a national fundraiser supporting families in need. So what does that mean? McDonald's will be donating $1 from certain menu items to the 15 Ronald McDonald Houses, and 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which have served more than 321K families of sick children since 1981. Other local children's charities will also benefit from the proceeds.
On McHappy Day, a small purchase makes a big difference. So now that you know the impact your May 3rd order will make, here are the best items to order:
Big Mac® sandwich
An oldie but a goodie. You can't go wrong with ordering this McDonald's classic, made with two 100% Canadian beef patties, crunchy lettuce, cheddar cheese, special sauce, pickles and onions on a toasted sesame seed bun. Mmm, delicious and $1 will be going towards a great cause!
Hot McCafé® drink
Whether you're on-the-go in the morning or you've hit a slump mid-day, a hot drink is a major key. I'm obsessed with lattes and boy does McDonald's ever come through with its delicious lattes (which are also delectable with a shot of caramel or vanilla!). If you don't drink coffee, McCafé hot chocolate is the move. Plus side? You're contributing to McHappy Day of course!
Why not re-live your childhood while helping a family or another child? Happy Meals are still the best, whether for yourself as a grown adult or for a child. The variety of options kids have these days is amazing: Chicken nuggets, chicken snack wrap, hamburger, cheeseburger, apple slices, yogurt and chocolate milk.
Everyone will have a chance to contribute to this bigger cause, with more than 1,400 participating McDonald's restaurants from coast to coast.
So don't forget to hit up McDonald's on May 3rd and order a Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafé beverage to donate $1 to Ronald McDonald Houses and local children’s charities across Canada for every order. And remember to Snapchat your in-restaurant experience using the fun geo filter that goes live on the big day. #McHappyDay
