McHappy Day Pie in the Face

Did you know that every single penny that is raised on McHappy Day in Ajax is donated straight to the charities?

The administrative costs are 100% donated by Bradley – the owner and operator of McDonald’s Ajax. On McHappy Day, staff raised money by bidding on pie-ing Bradley in the face. All for a great cause.

Thanks for capturing this moment perfectly! 

Fact Friday: Where does the McHappy Day money go?


100% of the money raised from McHappy Day in Ajax goes directly to two amazing charities:

Ronald McDonald House Charities: Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada helps give sick children what they need most – their families.

Grandview Children’s Centre: Grandview is the only children’s treatment centre in Durham Region providing specialized programs, outpatient clinical treatment, and support to thousands of children and youth with special needs and their families.

Thank you to the volunteers from these organizations that came to McDonald’s Ajax to lend a helping hand on McHappy Day. We are so proud and happy to support these amazing charities!
