Preparations for the holidays are at its peak, with many of us looking forward to a time of rest and celebration, eager to leave behind the year that was and start anew. And while we may get caught up in all this holiday hustle, let’s not forget what this season is truly about— the spirit of giving.
Launched last November 27, McDonald’s Happy Meal Buy 1 Share 1 Program aims to help spread happiness to Filipino children this holiday season. Each Happy Meal purchase can make not just one, but two children happier as McDonald’s matches each purchase by gifting a toy or a book to kids from partner beneficiaries.
With the community’s support, McDonald’s 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. It also includes a number of local government units and non-government organizations and all Bahay Bulilit communities.
Make the few days before the year ends count— it doesn’t take much to make someone smile this season, and McDonald’s is here to make it easier for you. Drop by your nearest McDonald’s via dine-in, take out, or drive-thru until December 31, 2020. You can also order via McDelivery to participate in the Happy Meal Buy 1 Share 1 Program.
