McHappy Day is the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia.

The much needed funds raised on McHappy help to keep families together and provide them with invaluable support while their seriously ill or injured child are undergoing treatment.

Gary Coyne shares his experiences with owing multiple McDonald’s restaurants and the core of McHappy Day.

Queenslanders can show their support for McHappy Day by:

  • Purchase a pair of $5 Silly Socks, or Helping Hands for $2, $10 or $50 from your local Macca’s
  • Buy a Big Mac on McHappy Day (Saturday 14th November) from your nearest McDonald’s, with $2 from every Big Mac sold going directly to RMHC.
