McDonald’s chains nationwide are supporting charities the way they know best: McHappy Day.

The annual one-day event is underway today, with Vernon restaurants joining the 1,400 chains across Canada in donating $1 from every Big Mac, Happy Meal or hot McCafe beverage to children’s charities.

“In 1977, we had a vision of communities across Canada coming together in support of families and children,” said George Cohon, founder of McDonald’s Canada and Ronald McDonald House Charities.
