Restaurants across Canada participated in the event on May 2, generating over $3.5 million for local children’s charities such as Ronald McDonald House.

“I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our customers for their support on another successful McHappy Day,” said Stephen Yeung, owner of the Hope location.

“We really appreciate the support shown by the local community for joining us and helping give seriously ill children and their families what they need most – each other.”

On McHappy Day, more than 1,400 McDonald’s restaurants in Canada donated one dollar from every Big Mac sandwich, Happy Meal, and hot McCafé beverage sold.
