'Tis The Season Of Giving! More Reasons To Buy A McDonald's Happy Meal
  • With the ongoing health crisis and the recent typhoons, 2020 has, indeed, been tough on everyone. Even more so to families who were directly affected by these unfortunate events.

    And so, as Christmas draws closer, now would be an excellent time to extend a helping hand to those in need as our own little way of giving hope and spreading the holiday cheer.

    One way we can do this is by participating in McDonald’s Philippines’ “Happy Meal Buy 1, Share 1”. This program is extended until December 31, 2020, so you still have time to participate!

    In keeping with the spirit of giving and giving back, McDonald’s delivers double the happiness by matching each Happy Meal purchase with a toy or a book to be given to kids from its partner beneficiaries in areas affected by the recent typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, including those in Rizal, Batangas, Albay, Quezon, Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Pampanga, and Sorsogon; all Bahay Bulilit communities and other select local government units (LGUs); and select non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including the Philippine Red Cross, Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation, Philippine Business for Social Progress, and the Makati Med Foundation.

    This means that with every Happy Meal purchase, you can make your child and another one happy!

    “We have been through difficult times, and we want to find a way to help spread the holiday cheer this season. Through this initiative, we continue to foster the Filipino spirit of giving even in the smallest of ways that still leave a lasting impact to the community,” Oliver Rabatan, Marketing Director of McDonald’s Philippines, said.

    We can help McDonald’s reach its goal of sharing books and toys to one million Filipino children across the country through this initiative.

    Serving frontliners and communities through Kindness Kitchen

    But McDonald's doesn't stop at spreading joy by giving away toys and books, as the brand has also made a commitment to give back to hardworking frontliners and communities in need through the Kindness Kitchen. Activated earlier this year, the Kindness Kitchen, through its charity of choice Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMCH), has so far served more than 300,000 meals.

    In November, McDonald's joined the multi-sectoral movement Pilipinas Kontra Gutom, which aims to eradicate involuntary hunger in the country.

    “Serving the community has always been integral to McDonald’s, and more so this time that many have been deprived of a basic need — food. This has become worse for many of our fellow Filipinos so we continue to be in solidarity with the government and our partners in the private sector in providing meals to families,” Kenneth S. Yang, President and CEO of McDonald’s Philippines, said.

    Get a Happy Meal and other McDonald’s favorites from McDonald’s branches nationwide via dine-in, take-out, drive-through, or pick-up. Even better: for convenient and cashless transactions, order these from the comfort of your home through McDonald’s online portals: the app on Android and iOS, website, and chatbot. You may also order via GrabFood and Foodpanda.

    Follow McDonald’s Philippines on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more information on how you can share happiness through the “Happy Meal Buy 1, Share 1” Program.
