Buy silly sock, helping hand or give back with a Big Mac

THE countdown to McHappy Day this Saturday is officially on with McHappy Time fundraising launching across McDonald’s restaurants.

McDonald’s licensees at Padstow, Punchbowl, Lakemba, Menai and Milperra, Tony and Mina Favotto are encouraging customers to support the annual fundraiser.
Funds raised will go to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) which helps seriously ill children and their families stay together while receiving medical care in hospital.
Customers can pick up a pair of exclusive Grimace or Hamburglar-themed Silly Socks ($5.95) or Helping Hands ($2, $10 or $50) from their local Macca’s or via McDelivery from now until this Saturday, November 18, with 100 per cent of profits going directly to RMHC.
Tony said they were blown away every year by the generosity of customers who dug deep for McHappy Day.
“We are asking our locals to top up their Macca’s order with a pair of Silly Socks or Helping Hands if they are in a position to do so,” he said.
McHappy Time – the celebration leading up to McHappy Day which will feature face-painting, school and dance performances and a visit from Ronald McDonald at the Favotto stores – will shine brighter than ever in 2023 thanks to a group of familiar faces who are raising awareness.
These include award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Shark, The Block’s Dan Reilly, NRL Legend Gorden Tallis and Sydney Swans’ great Josh Kennedy who will pop up on TV screens reminding us to ‘give back with a Big Mac’!
Customers can also make a donation online: rmhc.org.au/give.
