Aside from making customers happy with its newest 15-piece Minions 2 Happy Meal collectibles, fast food giant McDonald’s spreads happiness to more Filipino children this holiday season.
Every Happy Meal purchase, for as low as P90, can make two children happy as McDonald’s matches each purchase by gifting a toy or a book to kids from partner beneficiaries.
With the community’s support, the chain, since the program’s launch on Nov. 27, has already distributed books and toys with the help of partner organizations such as the Philippine Red Cross, Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation, Philippine Business for Social Progress, Manila Water Foundation, and Makati Med Foundation.
Beneficiaries of the Happy Meal Buy 1 Share 1 program include children from areas affected by typhoons Rolly and Ulysses such as those in Rizal, Marikina, Albay, Batangas, Quezon, Catanduanes, Camarines Sur, Pampanga, and Sorsogon, as well as a number of local government units and non-government organizations and all Bahay Bulilit communities.
Customers who want to help in the initiative can simply order at McDonald’s for dine-in, takeout, drive-thru, or McDelivery until Dec. 31.
Meanwhile, in the latest video of Ronald McDonald House Charities, its ambassador, Alden Richards encourages everyone to help through McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen.
“Sabi nga nila, ang Pasko ay panahon ng bigayan, kaya kumakatok po kami sa inyong mga puso. Ngayong Pasko sana mabigyan pa natin ng tulong ang mga kababayan nating nagugutom,” Richards said in the video uploaded to YouTube on Dec. 15.
The McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen was first set up in March to provide cooked meals for frontliners, volunteers, and communities affected by the pandemic. With the support of more than 50 partners including Metrobank, Coca-Cola, and HAVI logistics, the Kindness Kitchens has served more than 350,000 meals in more than 1,000 barangays, hospitals, and quarantine centers across the country.
