Macca’s has launched a new range of Silly Socks featuring much-loved McDonaldland characters, Ronald McDonald, Grimace and Hamburglar.
The socks are now available for purchase in McDonald’s restaurants Australia-wide as fundraising begins for McHappy Day on Saturday, 13 November.
Amanda Nakad, Marketing Director, McDonald’s Australia, said, “Silly Socks have been a part of our McHappy Day fundraising program for many years and are well-loved among the Aussie community. Our Silly Socks look good, feel good and do good, with all profits going towards helping seriously ill children and their families.”
We are calling on Aussies to purchase a pair of socks and show their support for Ronald McDonald House Charities this McHappy Day.
McHappy Day is the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities in Australia, helping seriously ill or injured children and their families stay together and close to care while undergoing treatment or surgery in hospital.
Over the past 30 years, McHappy Day has raised over $56 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The launch of the Silly Socks follows the announcement of McHappy Day 2021 ambassador, Eva Longoria.
Barbara Ryan, Chief Executive Officer, Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia, said, “McHappy Day is crucial to enabling us to continue to help seriously ill and injured children and their families across Australia.
“Funds raised by McDonald’s and its customers through the purchase of Silly Socks supports Programs such as Ronald McDonald Houses, Family Rooms, Family Retreats and our National Learning Program, which make a real impact in the lives of families and children in their time of need.”
Ronald McDonald, Grimace and Hamburglar Silly Socks are available to purchase for $5 from all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide or via McDelivery.
