Big McHappy thanks
We are writing to thank The Telegraph and the Seymour community for their support of McHappy Day in 2018 — the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
The Seymour community helped us celebrate 27 years of McHappy Day and raised more than $4.8 million for RMHC nationally.
These donations ensure that Aussie families get to stay together while their seriously ill or injured child undergoes treatment.
Throughout the country we saw communities, such as Seymour residents, help raise vital funds for RMHC.
We saw local Bucket Brigades, Scout groups, emergency services as well as sporting and TV personalities visiting McDonald’s restaurants, to help make a difference.
We want to personally say a big thanks to everyone in the Seymour community who got involved last weekend, making generous donations that helped McHappy Day raise more money than ever before.
Fundraising efforts like McHappy Day are vital and ensure RMHC can be there for families with seriously ill children when they need it most.
With so many Aussie kids requiring treatment, every donation goes a long way to keep families together in their toughest times.
You can continue to support families in need by donating to rmhc.org.au all year round.
— Barbara Ryan, Ronald McDonald House chief executive
