Cheer for charity – Children’s Day

Posted by aug 15 2009

World Children’s Day of McDonald’s has been running with huge success for years in 30 thousand restaurants of the world. The collected donations will be granted to Ronald McDonald House Charity Foundation. Me as a Mc Donald’s cashier? Yes. If I can help, I’ll be serving burgers all day and night…

Ronald McDonald goes blonde this season…

“Under this initiative, this week the restaurant offers a certain amount of the price of a designated meal sold in the restaurants for the benefit of the Foundation, when well-known and respected members of the given country and local communities stand behind the counters of the restaurants, to give a little additional inspiration to the customers to buy the products that will contribute to the Foundation. The charity week was concluded by a special day: celebrities stood behind the counter, to raise awareness of the situation of families in need, and to encourage every customer to support the Foundation, depending on their budget. Those who purchased postcards with drawings of sick children in need of hospital care also contributed to the support of a free temporary home for these children and their families. In 2006 18 million HUF was collected in one week, which went towards the annual revenues of the Foundation. On this special day several hundred celebrities worked as salespersons for McDonald’s, including Kristóf Steiner journalist and ex-moderator of Hungary’s popular Music Television, and the girl band, Fresh, selling postcards. Lola, the new teenage celebrity and Lilla Vincze, a singer who has retained her popularity for several years were serving customers in the restaurant in Nyugati Square. The experiences gained over recent years indicate that the guest apartments in Budapest and Miskolc are more in need than ever before, since so far they have provided temporary lodging for over 2500 families while their sick children received hospital treatment. The sum collected during McDonald’s World Children’s Day keeps increasing year by year, which means significant support for the foundation operating on the donations of companies and individuals.” That is why I’m really “lovin’ it”.
