This year, 500 staff volunteers have hit the streets on 10 November to sell "Ronald Smiles" to raise funds to RMHC, Ronald McDonald House Charities. For those who are unaware, RMHC is an independent charity that has been running a "home-away-from-home" facility at NUH (National University Hospital) for families with children in intensive care since January this year.
I was lucky enough to be one of the bloggers invited to the flag off. The street sales was launched at Jem's McDonald. There were so many people in red. Deafening cheers filled the air, displaying the Mac family great volunteering spirit.
The 500-strong staff volunteers hit the streets of Singapore. Members of the public could buy a "Ronald Smile" for just S$2. It is apparent from their enthusiasm, the culture of giving back to the community is a integral party of McDonald's culture!
Haha, whether young or old, Singaporeans are just eager to do good :) You, my dear readers can your part too! "Ronald McDonald Big Red Shoes" bench will be located at different parts of Singapore from 26 October to 22 November. All you have to do is submit photos of yourselves posing at the bench through Instagram and include the hashtag #mchappydaysg along the photo!
For every photo, McDonald will be donating S$1 capped at 5000 entries. The location of the benches can be found at the following area:
Dhoby Ghaut (NEL MRT Station) --> 26 Oct - 1 Nov
Harbourfront (NEL MRT Station) --> 2 Nov - 8 Nov
Toa Payoh Bus Interchange --> 9 Nov to 15 Nov
