Buy Helping Hands or Silly Socks to aid sick

MCDONALDS Auburn manager Vincent Orogan, along with his staff, are encouraging customers to support Ronald McDonald House Charities by buying a pair of Silly Socks or Helping Hands this week ahead of McHappy Day on Saturday

THE countdown to McHappy Day this Saturday is officially on with McHappy Time fundraising launching across McDonald’s restaurants.
McDonald’s Auburn manager Vincent Orogan is encouraging customers to support the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) which help seriously ill and injured 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.
Vincent said they were blown away every year by the generosity of customers who dug deep for McHappy Day and helped raise much needed funds.
“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 – will shine brighter than ever in 2023 thanks to a group of familiar Aussie faces who are raising much needed awareness.
These include ARIA 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 Aussies to ‘give back with a Big Mac’.
Customers can also make a donation online by visiting rmhc.org.au/give.
