We never met a french fry that we didn’t like. When it comes to McDonald’s fries – we keep our eyes on mine!
We have always supported McDonalds and Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada so we are delighted continue supporting them by becoming ‘fry-lanthropists’. Who is going to join us? This is a great reason to eat your beloved fries! A portion of the proceeds from every order of fries sold will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities® Canada (RMHC®). With the fundraiser running from April 20 to May 10, there has never been a better time for Canadians to order McDonald’s World Famous Fries™. Becoming a ‘fry-lanthropist’ is a delicious and easy way to give back.
Show your support by purchasing fries at McDonald’s drive-thru or using curbside pick-up, McDelivery®, take-out or dine-in. You can also share your fry-love online by using the new ‘I bought #FriesforRMHC‘ sticker on Instagram.
“Supporting RMHC is at the centre of McDonald’s Canada’s commitment to families,” says Jacques Mignault, President & CEO, McDonald’s Canada. “Since RMHC opened its doors in 1981, McDonald’s, together with its franchisees, crew, suppliers and guests, have all grown a lot of heart for the cause. I’m so proud to say that over the last 40 years we’ve been able to help RMHC support more than 425,000 families on their child’s treatment journey and I look forward to seeing what we can do together in the next 40 years.”
- The Fries for Good initiative was initially launched by McDonald’s Canada in May 2020 to help support the Canadian Red Cross. In only two weeks, the initiative raised more than $1.1M before returning in November of 2020, where it helped raise more than $1.8M for RMHC across Canada
- By renaming the fundraiser previously known as Fries for Good for this initiative, McDonald’s is reinforcing its connection to RMHC as its founding and forever partner
- Every day, Canadians can also round up their order bill to the nearest dollar at the front counter, drive-thru or kiosk at participating restaurants and donate the difference to support RMHC families
- Coin boxes and cashless donations are also available at point-of-purchase, while a portion of proceeds from the sale of every Happy Meal® and RMHC Cookie also go to RMHC
