Big McHappy thanks

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

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 all year round.
