It's McHappy Day

McHappy Day is when a dollar from various products goes to good causes.

"From every Big Mac, every Happy Meal and every hot McCafe beverage today, it's going 50 percent Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver and 50 percent will stay local to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club."

McDonalds' spokesperson Rena Krell appeared on AM 1150's Early Edition. She says McDonald House is so imporant to families with sick kids.

"From Kelowna alone, 117 families used the facility last year with an average stay of 13 nights. The savings alone are significant. The longest stay by a Kelowna family was 284 nights."

McHappy Day continues until the doors close today and they shut off the lights.
