With McHappy Day just around the corner, Benalla residents are encouraged to purchase a Helping Hand at their local McDonald’s restaurant to help put a smile on the face of ill children and their families.
This year, McHappy Day is aiming to raise $3.66
Helping Hands can be bought at McDonald’s restaurants nationwide for $1 up until McHappy Day on November 10, with all proceeds going directly to help ill children and their families.
Residents will be able to show their support for McHappy Day by signing a hand and displaying it in restaurants, creating an impactful display of support from the local community.
Corporate Helping Hands will also be available for businesses to buy in $10 increments. Businesses will be able to post a Helping Hand in restaurants and will also receive another to display in their office.
McDonald’s Benalla licensee Edward Aldridge said Helping Hands had proven to be a popular and successful fundraising tool, with more than 400
‘‘They not only create a fantastic visual display, but they represent the community coming together — communities who are always so generous in showing their support,’’ Mr Aldridge said.
McHappy Day is one of Australia’s longest-running, high-profile charity events.
